“Racing and riding in Capitol Reef is world-class. It includes incredible terrain and scenery and the volunteer base provides great rider support. Having done the CRC racing events and Gran Fondo in prior years, I highly recommend this year's events to all racers and riders. I guarantee that you'll "ride away" with a highly rewarding experience,” said Scott Morrison, a licensed Utah racer. “To have the race designated as Utah's state championship is inspired and will provide a great competitive environment. I am so excited to have the Capitol Reef events back on the calendar this year and expect that it will be an awesome gathering of riders and racers.”
The Capitol Reef Classic road race is sanctioned with a permit by USA Cycling, and is also a UCA point series event, with all USA Cycling rules in effect. Current USA Cycling license is required, or a $15 one-day event license may be purchased for the race. Register on-line for both the race and the Gran Fondo at usacycling.com. Registration fees are $65, after June 25 fees increase to $85; fee includes race, t-shirt, water bottle, feed stations, event window sticker and post-ride meal. Cash and prizes will be awarded to category racers, and participation awards will be given to Gran Fondo riders.
Volunteers will be needed for all aspects of the race & Gran Fondo. Please contact Lyman Kinney, Volunteer Coordinator to get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org.
