We at Rattler Racing and Mad Gravel are excited as we approach the start of the MTB and Gravel racing season. Thanks to you we have seen amazing growth which just adds fuel to the fire in bringing you better events. The ideas keep flowing and who knows what will happen in 2024…
With the growth of our events, please remember we are still that same ol’ grass-roots racing organization that you’ve come to love. After 9 years, the same crew still runs strong, but adding even more amazing volunteers, sponsors and stakeholders that play a critical role in making these events happen. That may not even be enough acknowledgement. These races don’t happen at all without everyone’s involvement.
This year looks to be even better than last year, as we’ve added a couple of short track events to 2 of our racing weekends. We’ve changed two venues with a return to Castle Rock for Fangdango and Copper Mountain for the Colorado State Championship. Of course, what looks to be a spring staple with The Bear is on the docket and are expecting BIG numbers. The original Mid Week Melee comes back in June and these races max out quickly! Of course Mad Gravel is super exciting for us as it’s a solid 3 days of Gravel and MTB racing. It’s also the introduction of The Hemi, which will be the premier gravel event on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.
We look forward to seeing you all soon. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or comments. We do listen to your feedback. You are our customer and we’ll do our best to make our events not just the best race experience, but also a memorable and fun event, where our cycling community comes together after a long cold winter!
