Fangdango

Fangdango Bike Race
PACKET PICKUP ON RACE DAY OR BIKE SOURCE HIGHLANDS RANCH
THURSDAY, MAY 5 FROM 4:00-6:00 PM

Fangdango brings to Colorado a world class style XC course only a short drive from the Denver Metro area. You will be treated to a course with plenty of climbing, tricky technical descents, and fast flowy single-track. The spectating on this course is amazing and you will have the opportunity to watch your favorite racers pass by multiple times in just one lap.

Thanks to the folks at BOERA for allowing this event to happen. We are proud to be working with them and the Platte Canyon School District for Fangdango. Another big thanks to COMBA, who were instrumental in making these trails.

What to Expect

World class style course a short drive away. At 5 miles and 500 feet vertical per lap, this challenging course will give you everything that should be in a mountain bike race. Sharp turns and cornering that will test your technical abilities, punchy climbs that will test your raw strength, fast descents that will test your guts, and multiple laps that will test your will!
