This Wednesday, July 11 marks the start of the Powerade Pinnacle Race Series. The series will consist of five action packed evenings at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. Each event will have a kid’s race, an endurance race, and a gravity race. CBMR is encouraging riders to participate in the endurance race and the gravity race as they will crown an overall series winner “based on participation in both disciplines.”

The Pinnacle Race Series is a great way for locals and guests to experience the Evolution Bike Park’s extensive trail system while engaging in friendly competition. The crew at Evolution has done an excellent job adding new trails and maintaining current ones.

Best of all, the Pinnacle Race Series is FREE. This includes lift tickets for those competing in the Gravity Race. The event will be a blast for competitors and spectators alike, so make sure you get out there.
