Registration for the 2013 Iron Horse Bicycle Classic opens Dec 1, 2012. The event will be held Memorial Day Weekend, May 25/26/27 2013. We have just launched a new website ironhorsebicycleclassic.com and we are excited to get things underway for another great year. All the great events are back, The McDonald’s Citizens Tour, Coca Cola Road Race, Quarter Horse to Purgatory, Morehart Murphy Criterium, BP Time Trial, Omnium, MBS Mountain Bike Race, Sprite Kids Race, and the Alpine Bank Push Bike Park. Whew, that’s a lot!!

Key points for the 2013 event. (Just a few!)

For 2013, we will time the McDonald’s Citizens Tour to Silverton. You must start with the Train at 8:30am (College and Camino Del Rio) in order to receive a time. Early bird riders are not eligible.
For the racers, we are no longer sanctioned by USA Cycling. We are following similar category designations and will offer all the great racing options as years past. No license necessary. You will not earn upgrades points as we are not sanctioned – FYI.
Electronic timing for the Coca Cola Road Race to Silverton.
The fast growing Quarter Horse to Purgatory 25 mile Tour is once again ready to roll. Durango Mountain Resort is also offering lodging specials. See our website for details
We have greatly expanded out IHBC Merchandise for 2013, from riding gear to casual wear for men and women, we are also offering kids T’s with a cool new train logo. Stock up, we will ship it to you well in advance of the event.
For the Mountain Bike Racers, once again you will ride the course that skirts the perimeter of Fort Lewis College, and also travels right into the heart of Downtown Durango and rides along the Criterium course. Pro/Cat 1 racers will again race through Steamworks Brewery. If you we there in 2012, the crowds and excitement were amazing.

There is the preview. Registration opens December 1, 2012. Last year’s event sold out in a matter of days (hours for some race categories). Get logged in and ready to go Dec 1, and make sure you join the tradition in Durango!

We hope to see you in 2013!
