Chocolate Bunny Productions is proud to announce The Rocky Mountain Race Series— a multi-discipline mountain bike series in Colorado and New Mexico. The series will include downhill, cross country, short track and dual slalom.
We are really excited to bring this new series online for the region. We feel that there is a calling to bring back the multi-discipline format to the region. With the growth of the region’s junior programs such as Durango Devo, SMBA and the Colorado High School MTB League, we want to foster the future of the sport and provide this growing category of racers a place to exhibit their training and racing skill sets alongside their friends and family.
The Rocky Mountain Race Series will kick-off May 2018 and feature one event per month through August 2018. The series will include categories for juniors ages 8 to 18, in three-year age groups and 10-year age groups for adults, in both endurance and gravity disciplines.

The downhill courses will be challenging for elite-level riders, and feature alternative lines or completely different courses for CAT 2 and 3 riders. Dual slalom will be held at three or four of the venues. Cross country courses will feature varying lengths for different categories, with longer courses going outside of ski area boundaries. Short track will be run as the “missing out” format, where the last racer across the line will be pulled from the racer each and every lap until it comes down to the last two racers.
“We are excited about hosting two stops in the Rocky Mountain Race Series (RMRS) There has been a huge lapse since the end of the Mountain States Cup (MSC) era. We are super stoked to finally have multi-discipline racing back in the Rockies,” said Hogan Koesis, Mountain Capital Partners bike park director. “We hope to grow racers at our venues and feel that they will both offer courses that are challenging and unique to each venue.”
