Steamboat Springs race shortens format

Instead of a full 24 hours, The Rio Stampede will offer racers the chance to compete for 6 or 12 hours solo or as part of a team at the Steamboat Ski area in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, on June 7.

Now in its fifth year, the new format replaces the established Rio 24 hours of Steamboat. "We are looking for ways to get more people involved," said veteran event promoter Katie Lindquist. "We believe the format change will attract a great field of competitors creating an experience to be remembered."

"The only change from the 24 hour race is the clock," said co-director Brad Cusenbary. Racer will compete on a course with legendary climbs and aspen-lined singletrack. For more information, visit www.rockypeakproductions.com
