On Sunday, June 26th, Neil was struck by a car on 550 and has sustained traumatic injuries. He was flown to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver. Please come out to support his fund by racing or just riding the SKA ZIA Star Wars Enduro on Wednesday, June 29th.

Entry fee is $10, but of course you could give more! Neil is not only a great community supporter, but an advocate for bicycling in our community! Let’s come together and support those who support us!

The race is an enduro format- racers have a neutral (untimed) climb up Hidden Valley to the start. Riders go off in 30 second intervals, racing down to the bottom of Star Wars. After completing their first run they will ride back around for a second run of the same course. Results based on the best time out of the two.

Location: Leyden Trailhead
Registration: 5:30-6:15
Races: Racing will begin at 6:30. Choose to race in either the A or B categories. Start order is determined on first come, first serve basis at the start.
