2020 COVID-19 Blue Square Phase Rules & Guidelines for Mountain Bike Races

These rules are to preserve the health and safety of our participants and staff and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Races will take place over two or three days with multiple waves to ensure no more than 50 people are in the area at the same time. Please see individual race pages for detailed race day schedules.
    • Youth MTB and Beginner categories will take place on Tuesday evenings.
    • Adult Sport, Expert and Pro categories will take place on Wednesday evenings.
  • During the Blue Phase, youth racers are limited to one parent per racer to ensure we don’t exceed the maximum gathering limit.
  • Racers are asked to leave the venue immediately after finishing their race.
  • At this time, races will NOT include an after party or award ceremony.
  • Names of raffle winners will be drawn during the race and posted. Winners can pick up prizes upon completion of race before exiting venue.
  • Results will be posted online. There will not be an in-person protest period. Participants will have 24 hours after race to protest via email. After protest period closes, top three finishers in each category will be announced and awards will be mailed.
  • Race registration numbers will be limited and during the Blue Phase, registration will be online ONLY. There will be no day of registration.
  • Social distancing guidelines of six feet between individuals will be strictly enforced for racers and spectators.
  • Starting positions will be designated to ensure six feet of distance between competitors.
  • Participants will be required to wear face masks when registering/picking up their bib.
  • Racers agree to NOT attend if they have any symptoms or exposure risks as listed by the CDC guidelines.
  • If racers cannot participate due to illness or exposure to illness, registration fees will be credited to their account to be used for another race without penalty.
  • At-risk populations are discouraged from participating.
  • Anyone not adhering to these procedures will be asked to leave.

Please read the MTB Race Covid-19 Protocols and FAQ's for more information.

Directions

Take I-70 to Eagle (exit 147). At the roundabout, head south on Eby Creek Road. Continue south through the roundabouts on Eby Creek Road, until you cross the Eagle River. At the next roundabout, take the first right out of the roundabout onto Grand Avenue/Highway 6. Go west on Grand Avenue/Highway 6 for 0.8 miles to the next roundabout. At this roundabout, take the third right onto Sylvan Lake Road. Continue on Sylvan Lake Road approximately 1 mile, and then take a right on Eagle Ranch Road. Follow Eagle Ranch Road to 4th of July Road, then turn right. 4th of July Road takes you uphill for another mile or so, leading to Arroyo Drive. Turn left. The trailhead is approximately 0.25 miles on the right.

 

Parking

Participants are asked to park at the after-party location in the Eagle Ranch Business District and ride to the start, as parking is extremely limited at the trailhead. If participants drive to the start, they will need to park on 4th of July Road as directed by VRD staff. Arroyo Drive will be closed to all vehicle traffic between 4th of July Road and Haystacker Drive from 4 to 8 p.m.

 

Course Descriptions

Short Loop – From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and bear left on the Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector. Turn left at the bottom of the hill towards Mayer Gulch and turn left on Mayer Gulch. Descend to the bottom and stay left towards Turniphead. Turniphead will take you back to the start/finish.

Wall/Riddle Loop – From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and bear left on the Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector. Turn left at the bottom of the hill towards Mayer Gulch and turn left on Meyer Gulch. Descend to the bottom and turn right towards Wall Trail. At the corner, you will cross Haystacker Drive - please use caution, there will be a course marshal here - and continue up Wall to Riddle. Follow Riddle back to Meyer Gulch and turn right. Use caution as loops merge here. Descend Mayer Gulch again and turn left this time onto Turniphead to return to the start/finish.

Bailey Loop - From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and continue straight at Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector intersection. Continue climbing to Bailey single track and turn right. Ride up and down Bailey back to the start. Use caution when merging back onto the 2nd Gulch trail.

Important....

Encouraging trail stewardship in partnership with Hardscrabble Trails Coalition, Vail Valley Mountain Bike Association

The Vail Rec District is a proud supporter of the Eagle County trails and the organizations that work hard to maintain them. It is important to remember that riding and racing on world class trails is a privilege and our trails do not build or maintain themselves. This year during the 2020 EastWest Destination Hospitality Mountain Bike Series, riders can earn an additional 25 points towards their overall series total if they participate in one trail work event prior to August 19. In order to be considered, participants must snap a photo of themselves during the event and tag the Vail Recreation District Facebook page as well as either the VVMBA or the HTC Facebook page (depending on the host). For more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the VRD Sports Department at 970-479-2280. Upcoming events hosted by the VVMBA and the HTC are listed below.
