Vail Grind….5th leg of the Vail Rec Series

Last night the Vail Rec District hosted the Vail Grind. The Grind is 5th leg of the 2011 Mountain Bike Race series and had a fantastic turnout on a beautiful evening. The course, a 4.7 mile loop that includes 1200′ of climbing, is situated on the Lionshead side of Vail Mountain. From the kids to the Pros everyone seemed to have a suffering good time.


Vail Rec District First Short-track MTB Race 2011…….

On a breezy, sometimes snowy, April evening a group of brave souls competed in the first Vail Rec District Short-track MTB race of the 2011 season. The turn-out featured juniors, beginners, sport & expert classes racing around a track at the Eagle County Fairgrounds. The efforts were impressive. After the races, competitors were treated to an after-party at the Dusty Boot. Good work to everyone who braved the early season conditions and congratulations to the winners. Here are a couple of the cooler shots from the event.

And our big winner with her biggest fan…..
