    Carving through the heartland of American cycling, the Mavic Haute Route Rockies 2017 will feature an unforgettable combination of jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking climbs. The event offers committed amateur riders the opportunity to compete with a professional level of off-the-bike support unprecedented in US amateur cycling.

    The event starts in Boulder on June 24th, 2017 and finishes in Colorado Springs on June 30th. Competitors face seven timed and ranked stages covering 875km (550 miles) and in excess of 16,000 vertical metres (52,500 feet) of climbing on some of Colorado’s best known mountain roads, many soaring above 3,000m in altitude (10,000 feet):

    Stage 1: Boulder – Boulder
    Stage 2: Boulder - Winter Park
    Stage 3: Winter Park – Avon
    Stage 4: Avon – Avon (Individual Time Trial)
    Stage 5: Avon – Snowmass Village
    Stage 6: Snowmass Village – Crested Butte
    Stage 7: TBC – Colorado Springs

    Influenced by Colorado’s rich cycling culture, sections of dirt and gravel road (approximately 15% of the course) will add a new dimension to the Haute Route proposition but these can still be negotiated on a standard road bike.

    A point-to-point event, the Mavic Haute Route Rockies offers a unique platform for committed amateur cyclists to set themselves a defining challenge, while taking in the spectacular Colorado canvas of high plains, deep canyons, lush forests and spectacular mountain roads that are ingrained in the fabric of American road cycling.

    Riders will benefit from full mechanical assistance from the event’s Title Partner Mavic – drawing on decades of experience supporting the pro peloton in cycling’s Grand Tours – in addition to daily stage timings, feed stations and Mavic’s exclusive event jersey and bib shorts. Off the bike, daily massages, food in the race village and transfer of luggage to accommodation between stages is provided – all hallmarks of the comprehensive event support experienced by riders in the European Haute Route series since 2011.

    The full course will be revealed in the coming months, as permits are obtained through the necessary governing entities. With an entry limit of 600 riders and high demand for places, we encourage you to register early.
