Colorado Mountain Bike Championship logo

Rattler Racing is excited to be hosting the Colorado Mountain Bike Championship for 2021. We feel the course in Bailey is perfect for an event like this. The course delivers everything you would expect from a XC mountain bike race. It’s a 4.5 mile world cup style course packed with solid climbing, twisty turns, short technical sections, and fun descents. Racers will do multiple laps depending on their discipline. The course is set in a beautiful setting and perfect for those that are there to spectate. Tons of opportunites to see your favorite racers multiple times on each lap! The state championship will be a USAC sanctioned event. All racers are required to have a USAC license to race.
