Nutrition During the Stage FIRST ENDURANCE, OFFICIAL MAVIC HAUTE ROUTE ROCKIES NUTRITION SUPPLIER EFS Liquid Shot and drink provide everything you need to maximize endurance and performance during exercise, with the latest amino acid technology, superior mineral bioavailability, and the addition of malic acid.

FEED STATION ETIQUETTE With hundreds of riders making a pit stop in close proximity, it’s vital you don’t block the road by pulling up directly to the feed station with your bike. Instead use the bike racks provided. To ensure all participants get access to adequate sports nutrition products, we kindly ask riders not to take more than 1 bar per feed station. There are plenty of other options also available: oranges, bananas, dry fruits, crackers, cakes, cheese, ham, and water. Please note that each 130ml EFS Liquid Shot bottle contains 3 to 4 servings to be spread over more than three hours of riding. You will receive 6 EFS Liquid Shot bottles at Registration. For optimal performance, we advise you to start taking EFS Liquid Shot in the morning and throughout each stage. EFS Liquid Shot will also be available at the first feed station every day (expect on Time Trial Day).

For riders receiving external support from family, coaches, or tour operators, note that the feed station zones are the only points on the course where assistance is permitted. All cyclists must use the portable toilets positioned at each feed station. Urinating in public is illegal in all 50 states. A person in breach of this law could technically be charged with disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, or public lewdness.

EFS Drink will be available at every feed station, so you'll be able to fill your drinking bottle when you want. We’ll also offer you a nice selection of sweet and salty bars. 19

ABOUT

Winter Park Welcome to Winter Park, Colorado. Tucked against the Continental Divide Winter Park offers the best of the Rockies: magnificent views of towering mountain peaks, sublime camping spots, luxurious lodging, hiking, biking, and endless activities, it’s no wonder Winter Park was voted “Colorado’s Top Adventure Town”. The area serves as an incredible basecamp to enjoy all of these wonderful things plus, the east entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is just 37 miles from downtown Winter Park. The community buzzes all summer long with music, beer, wine, tequila and food festivals, as well as art events, cycling and running races. Top that off with great places to stay and a pedestrian-friendly main street where you can dine and shop, Winter Park is a welcome stop on the Mavic Haute Route Rockies. Winter Park is a year-round destination, the town is thriving with new developments and the ski area is investing $28 million in improvements this summer for the coming winter season including the construction of a 10-person gondola. For bikers, with over 600 miles of cross-country biking trails and two downhill bike parks, the town lives up to its trademark, Mountain Bike Capital USA™, and it’s easy to see why.

ABOUT

Avon While Avon’s ranching and farming history run deep, the town has evolved into a mountain resort community with rich cultural offerings and a diverse population of residents and guests. It’s the gateway to the world-renowned Beaver Creek Resort, an annual stop of the FIS World Cup ski tour. Avon is known for its road biking and mountain biking. Riders can enjoy a diversity of challenging rides through exquisite mountain vistas. The Eagle Valley Trail, which stretches 63 miles from Vail Pass through Glenwood Canyon, passes through Avon, providing a safe, non-motorized route for pedestrians and bicyclists, and connecting the nearby communities of Eagle-Vail and Edwards. The West Avon Preserve offers 13 miles of single track multi-use trails, rounding out the rider activity offerings in Avon. Harry A. Nottingham Park and the Avon Pavilion are home to Avon’s lakeside beach and nearby disc golf course. Rent a SUP or paddle boat to float on Nottingham Lake, or take advantage of picnic tables and barbecue grills throughout the park. Tennis, basketball, volleyball, and pickle-ball courts are also available. For the adventurous, the Whitewater Park on the Eagle River is just a short walk away and features hydraulics that attract freestyle kayakers of all levels.

ABOUT

Breckenridge

Surrounding the historic town of Breckenridge, you can see evidence of its gold-mining history in the form of talus piles dotting the mountains. From the 1860s into the early 1900s, Breckenridge’s rivers and mountains were mined. Its transformation into a ski town started in 1961 with the first run cut into Peak 8, west of the village. Today, the ski area lays claim to the highest chairlift in the world, topping out at 12,840 feet (3,914M+). The historic Victorian Main Street, a registered National Historic District, has attracted shops and restaurants. More than 10 museums around town cover Breckenridge’s mining roots. You’ll have two nights here, plenty of time to explore Main Street or just hang out on the patio at one of the restaurants. But what makes Breckenridge stand out is that those 100-plus miles of original access roads to the mines throughout the valley and the surrounding mountains created a bonanza of more than 100 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and off-roading trails to explore. These include the steep neighborhood roads climbing up the hills east of town that have hosted pivotal stages of the recent ProTour bike race held each August. Take advantage of your two nights in Breckenridge to discover its dining and cultural gems.
