Participants and Shenanigans Wanted for This Friday’s Community Clunker Criterion

If you don't have Labor Day Weekend fully booked, then consider spending part of it at the inaugural Grand Junction Off-Road. Details for all events are at the Epic Ride website:

This event will provide Grand Junction with a great economic boost; it will place our community and trails in a positive light with the media, locally and nationally; and will otherwise be a fun final weekend of the summer season.

Clunker Criterion - Registration + Helmet Required

Registration is free but required of all who plan to enjoy this whimsy opener to the Pro Criterion. Located in the DT SWISS event hub on Main Street near 4th between Noon-5:45pm on Friday, 8/30 we encourage all to decorate their bike and body as they deem appropriate. Participants will get a paper number plate to write a number, slogan or if artistically gifted, a mural on. Creativity is highly encouraged and may even be rewarded.  Come out and goof off on the bike while the downtown streets are closed!

Friday, August 30
6:00p - Clunker Crit - 2 laps + tons of entertainment
6:15p - Women's Pro Race - 20 minutes + 3 laps
6:50p - Men's Pro Race - 20 minutes + 3 laps
