About Us

Push.Pedal.Power.
Welcome to Rattler Racing. It all started for us in 2015. Seeing a serious need for some mid-week mountain bike racing, we set out on creating a summer series. Little did we know how well it would be received. With a big emphasis on junior cycling, we launched the Colorado Junior Cup in 2018, and Fangdango in 2019. Also, throw in a 3-day stage race with G3, because why not? Our goal is to host events that we would love to do ourselves. While it may sound same ol’, customer service is our passion. If you haven’t been to one of our events, come on out. You won’t be disappointed. Send us your comments, ideas, and concerns. We value feedback and want to make our events better every time. See you on the trails!
