The Bailey Hundo mountain bike races are going through a transformation.
Team Evergreen now offers the races, which will be June 19. The 100-mile Hundo is becoming a 100K race, and the 50-mile Fundo is now a 50K. In addition, the entry fee has been lowered to $150 or $50 with a commitment to fundraise an additional $200 before event day.
What hasn’t changed are the three mountain biking nonprofits the race continues to support: Lucky to Ride, which is dedicated to giving underserved and at-risk youth the opportunity to explore Colorado on mountain bikes; the Colorado High School Cycling League, an interscholastic mountain bike race series; and the Colorado Mountain Bike Association, which is dedicated to developing and preserving mountain biking experiences.
“We focus on providing a welcoming environment to every level of cyclist and giving back to the community,” Jen Barbour, executive director of Team Evergreen, said in a statement. “By adding the Hundo as a Team Evergreen event, we will be able to continue to … provide a stellar event experience (and) reduce rider costs while continuing to give to the organizations that the Hundo has targeted their support to in years past.”
Registration, which is limited to 400 participants, is open, and the race starts on the Buffalo Creek Trail in the Pike National Forest.
Race director Kendra Head said the Hundo and Fundo, in their 12th year, attract large crowds because riders of all abilities can participate, Buffalo Creek is one of the best single-track riding areas along the Front Range, and the event is close to Denver. The rides were canceled last year because of COVID-19.
“We are looking forward to having a very successful year,” Head said. “Everybody is really excited to be able to offer some fun for mountain bikers.”
