 A point-to-point event, the Mavic Haute Route Rockies offers a unique platform for committed amateur cyclists to set themselves a defining challenge, while taking in the spectacular Colorado canvas of high plains, deep canyons, lush forests and spectacular mountain roads that are ingrained in the fabric of American road cycling.

 Riders will benefit from full mechanical assistance from the event’s Title Partner Mavic, drawing on decades of experience supporting the pro peloton in cycling’s Grand Tours; in addition, daily stage timings, feed stations and Mavic’s exclusive event jersey and bib shorts.

 Off the bike, daily massages, food in the race village and transfer of luggage to accommodation between stages is provided – all hallmarks of the comprehensive event support experienced by riders in the European Haute Route series since 2011. 

 Influenced by Colorado’s rich cycling culture, sections of dirt and gravel road -- approximately 15% of the course -- will add a new dimension to the Haute Route proposition but these can still be negotiated on a standard road bike.

 Iconic climbs, including: Berthoud Pass, Independence Pass and Sunshine Canyon. Some of Colorado's greatest towns: Boulder, Crested Butte, Snowmass, Avon, and more. The incredible riding and amenities Haute Route is famous-for with altitude that truly makes it the 'High Road'.
