Racing is back at Peaceful Valley! To continue the effort in making Mad Gravel a full cycling weekend of playing in the dirt, Rattler Racing is excited to introduce MGXC, a mountain bike race in and around the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch in Elbert, Colorado. The course this year will be a 5 mile circuit with multiple laps. The start/finish area will be set right under the huge dining hall where the crowd will be cheering you on. MGXC will be the third day of racing over the Mad Gravel weekend.
Set right in the heart of Peaceful Valley Ranch, this sweet 5 mile lap winds through the varying terrain in the eastern tundra of Colorado’s front range. The course is a mix of technical sections, fast and furious single track and double track roads. You will still be tested with about 800 feet vertical per lap. The start/finish will be based right in front of the indoor/outdoor dining hall overlooking the giant open range of Elbert County.
Pricing: Adults – $58, Juniors (13-18) – $48, Juniors (9-12) – $28, Juniors 8 and under FREE. If you have a junior (8 and under) that wants to race on the bigger course with 9/10 year olds, they can move up and will need to register with 9 year old pricing.
Course 411: The course will be marked at all critical intersections the day before the race. Pre-riding will not be allowed as the Ranch is private. There will be an opportunity to ride the course all of Memorial Day weekend. If scouting it out during another active race, please maintain a 200 foot following distance.
Spectating: You name it. Peaceful Valley Ranch has viewing opportunities all around the property. But we can’t oversell the venue headquarters enough. It will be the place to be.
Number Plates: This is a lap timed event. All racers will have a number plate with chip except for the Elite Mini Kids Race.
Results: Posted at the conclusion of your race and online the following day.
The Bear will not be a sanctioned event by any governing body. This means all can enter without any official license.
Number of laps will be dependent on category and/or age group. Awards ceremony will follow each race. Remember, your age will be calculated as RACE AGE, which is the age you will be on 12/31/2022.
If we are forced to cancel MGMC due to weather, you will be refunded 90% of the entry fee at any time prior to the race. Deferrals to our other events will also be available. If you are forced to cancel because of extreme weather on race day, or if you are unable to race, refunds will not be offered.
