Have you heard? Wyoming’s Wind River Country/Fremont County is the hot new mountain biking destination. Your opportunity to check it out is next month’s Jurassic Classic Mountain Bike Race near Lander.
On Saturday, Sept. 24, the Lander Cycling Club will host the fifth annual Jurassic Classic, which will again feature three cross-country routes of varying lengths and difficulty levels and a three-stage enduro.
“New this year, the advanced course will feature both a newly built section of trail and new terrain, making it a longer and more challenging advanced course,” said Lander Cycling Club President Julie Fairbank.
The Lander Cycling Club has energized efforts to expand cycling in the Lander area in recent years, developing many new miles of trails in Wyoming’s Wind River Country. Explore a sampling of those at a local favorite trail network, Johnny Behind the Rocks Recreation Area, by participating in the Jurassic Classic Sept. 24.
That local passion is also what makes the Jurassic Classic such a great race.
“My favorite aspect of this race is the strong local involvement,” said Fairbank, adding it’s nice to see out-of-town riders join the culmination of the mountain bike season.
Tour the trails in the men’s or women’s beginner, intermediate, or advanced categories of three distances or the three-stage enduro. Racers can choose in a single event or both cross-country and endure races. Register today to sample just some of the cycling Wind River Country has to offer!
