Vail Rec District gives update on MTB series
Short-track races moved to September
The Vail Recreation District updated its plans for the Town Mountain Bike Series on Tuesday.
The Spring Short Track Series has been postponed until September. The current plan is to hold short-track races every other Wednesday in September and we may include a cyclocross option.
The summer Wednesday series is still on, slated to start on May 20 with the Minturn Mini for kids and the Eagle Classic on May 27 for riders of all ages, pending developments with COVID-19.
