With both cross-country and DH/Freeride races on different courses every week for the next 5 weeks, the 12 and under junior series is also making a come back this summer. Registration for all riders will be held between 4:30 and 5:30 on the 9380 deck.  The Junior series will kick off a little earlier than the adults at 5:15, while the XC races will start at 5:45 and DH races will start at 6:15.

The Pinnacle Race Series is always fun for the whole family not just because juniors can race in a fun environment, but because the “Live from Mt. CB” concert series will be happening simultaneously to the races for the next 5 weeks.  Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real will be playing this Wednesday followed by Pato Banton and the Now Generation next Wedsneday, both of which have rocked Crested Butte before so you shouldn’t miss them.

The after-party and awards will be held after each race on the 9380 deck.  Prizes will be awarded top riders in each category, but don’t worry everyone is eligible for food and drink. You can get more information on the race series and the concert series on CBMR’s website or you can call (970)-349-2217.
