High Altitude Classic
XC Mountain Bike Race
The High Altitude Classic is a mountain bike race in Cloudcroft, NM with a history dating back to the '90's.
With blazin' fast single track descents, rocky technical sections, and not-so-easy double track connectors, it's easy to see how this race can quickly challenge the best of your skills, yet leave you wanting to come back for more each year.
For 2019, the High Altitude Classic is a key event in the Chubby Tire Rendezvous mountain bike weekend schedule. The race is a USA Cycling sanctioned event, and part of the New Mexico Off-Road Racing Series.
We're excited to see many familiar faces and racers return...
