Season-opening Town Challenge race postponed because of rain


2013 Town Challenge Mountain Bike Race Series schedule

— The Steamboat Springs Town Challenge Mountain Bike Race Series event schedule for Wednesday has been postponed.

The Howelsen race has been moved to June 5.

Series Director David Stevenson said because of the moisture received Tuesday night and rain in the forecast, the smart decision was to postpone the race.

“We were not confident the course would dry out,” Stevenson said. “The last thing we wanted to do is tear up the trails.”

The course June 5 will follow the same one that was scheduled for Wednesday.
