The short track mountain bike racing season in Eagle County is, as promised, short, and will wrap up on Wednesday in Minturn.

The Vail Recreation District, which hosts the series, describes short track racing as a competition to “challenge yourself to complete as many laps as you can” on a short, dirt loop.

The series is intended to “knock the cobwebs off your bike and get those legs in shape,” according to the rec district, in advance of the longer, more serious style of mountain biking offered during the annual summer eight-race mountain biking series.

Wednesday’s race-day activities will begin at 4 p.m. at Maloit Park in Minturn, with day-of registration lasting until 6:30 p.m. The first race of the evening starts at 5:15 p.m. for kids ages 5 to 9, followed by a race at 5:30 p.m. for kids ages 10 to 14.

Adult races will begin at 5:45 p.m. with the beginner category and continue with the sport category at 6:15 p.m. The final race, for cyclists in the expert category, will begin at 6:45 p.m.



The cost to preregister is $6 for kids and $16 for adults. Day-of registration rates are $8 for kids and $22 for adults.

Race organizers say they are watching the weather and will notify participants should the race be canceled due to inclement weather or unrideable conditions. Check the VRD’s Facebook page at facebook.com/vailrecdistrict for updates closer to each event.
