June 28-30, 2019
Your entry fee earns you 3 amazing days of racing on world class mountain bike trails in the Winter Park area. A sweet 3/4 sleeve race jersey from Voler (later entries will have shirts mailed), and other race swag, daily finisher aid station stocked with food and drink from our sponsors, daily post race beer, professional results, growing prize list and awards from our sponsors, experienced medical team and race support, custom finisher beer stein (this thing is sweeeet!), and probably more that we can think of right now.
Racer Check-in: We will be stationed at the Rendezvous Sales Center tent on Thursday June 27, from 6:00-8:00pm. Look for a big white tent just north of the town of Winter Park on the right hand side. This will also be the location of start/finish and awards on Sunday. For those coming up Friday morning, you can check in at Granby Ranch. Registration will be open at 7:30am. Trail Map and location of the Sales Center.
Racer Meeting: Thursday, 7:30 PM at the Rendezvous Tent. Info about the next 3 days of racing. This is NOT mandatory as we know some can't make it until Friday morning. Everything said in the meeting will be posted on the website (really, why wouldn't it be!). There will be time on Friday morning to get all your answers resolved as well.
Number Plates: You will be issued a number plate for the entire race. If you damage it during the race, we wil issue a new one. If you lose it, cost is $10,000, or we can negotiate taking possession of your bike.
Results: Posted on a daily basis and each subsequent day will have cumulative scoring.
Timing/Awards: Each day will have podium announcements for the day's winner. Sunday will have the day's podium as well as awards for the overall top spots for the first G3! Your final time is the TOTAL time elapsed over the 3 days of racing. Remember, you MUST finish the entire event to get your custom G3 mug!
Food: Yes, we will have post race food available on the Granby race days. There is one of those wedding type things taking place over the weekend so they are asking us sweaty mountain bikers to clear the area by the afternoon. The Grill at Granby WILL NOT be open on Friday, but WILL be open Saturday after the race. Granby Ranch will be giving G3 participants food discounts. We will be bringing in pizza and other great food from the finest pizza joint in town, Hernando's on Sunday as we crown the overall winners of the race!. Yes, you will also enjoy a well earned beer....or two.
USAC: We still have quite a few of you "pending" on your USAC license. Please get that squared away before next weekend. We can't allow you to race unless we see that license. Annual forms will be available Thursday and Friday, but way better to do it ahead of time.
Blues Fest: The Town of WInter Park is offering all G3 racers a discounted rate into the Blues Fest! Details will be coming to your inbox.
Categories: G3 is a USA Cycling sanctioned mountain bike stage race. All USAC rules will apply. Entering and finishing this race will qualify you for Nationals.
