Pedal Power series continues Jan. 19

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado ” Colorado is ready to find out who the state’s top women’s and men’s snowshoe racers are as the Pedal Power Snowshoe Adventure Series holds the third event of its series, The Pazzo’s 10K/5K.

The race is Jan. 19 at the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center starting at 10 a.m. and will determine the Colorado state championship in both women’s and men’s categories. This race will also serve at the regional qualifier for the USSSA National Championships.

This race will benefit the Mike Janelle Family Fund. Long-time Vail local Mike Janelle, a world-class bike racer and perennial presence on the region’s endurance sports scene, passed away unexpectedly late last year.



This event is open to both 10K and 5K racers with the 10K race serving as the state championship event. Because of the challenge and variety of terrain, along with the untracked snow conditions, the Pazzo’s Championship track attracts some of the top local, regional and national Nordic and endurance competitors.

Racers will meet at the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center at Ski Cooper, between Interstate 70 and Leadville.



The series consists of five events starting in early December and running through March. And will attract top Nordic and endurance competitors from around the region.

Registration for this event is $20. Participants can pre-register with forms from Pedal Power Bicycle Shop in Eagle-Vail or by calling 970 845-0931. Registration forms can also be downloaded online at pedalpowerbike.com. Participants may also register on the day of the event at the race start. For more information, call Pedal Power at 845-0931.
