Due to rising permit costs at Lory State Park and Horsetooth Mountain Park, the Tooth or Consequences enduro style mountain bike races have been canceled for 2019. The Nothern Colorado MTB Festival will take it's place. Read on for specific information provided by the Overland Mountain Bike Association. 

The Tooth or Consequences MTB Festival has a new name! And a change to the event. Due to the very high costs associated with hosting this race event on local trails, we have decided to cancel it for this year. Future race event options are being considered and pursued if they are cost-effective. This event is a fundraiser for our local trail building, maintenance and advocacy efforts...making this change is our only option at this point.

The newly named Northern Colorado MTB Festival is an event you do not want to miss! Similar to last year's event, we will have our annual Take-a-Kid MTB'ing Day which is again sponsored by SCHEELS, bike demos from local bike shops, poker ride, bike skills contests & exhibitions. The vendor expo will allow attendees to meet and interact with multiple local businesses. Food trucks and cold delicious beer from New Belgium Brewing will be available. With very generous support from the Bohemian Foundation, we will also have live music from 3 local bands all afternoon...music lineup will be announced soon!

We will update the new event website as soon as possible, but please watch for additional updates and event timelines in future newsletters and on social media.

Join us on September 28 and 29 for two days of riding and racing on some of the best trails Horsetooth Mountain Open Space and Lory State Park has to offer! We'll be racing on Saturday with bike demos available both days, as well as a family fun festival with outdoor vendors, live music and food.

We're bringing back the same format as last year, with timed sections giving you a chance to go after descending and overall categories. Climbing stages will not be an awarded category in 2019.

The Festival is free for all.
