(Lander, Wyo.) – Lander Cycling is hosting the second annual Jurassic Classic mountain bike race on Saturday.
The race begins at 8 a.m. at a Bureau of Land Management recreation area southeast of Lander, locally known as Johnny Behind the Rocks.
Three different levels of difficulty are available to compete in: a 4-mile beginner route, an 8.6-mile intermediate course and an 18.6-mile expert route. Specific course maps are available to view at www.landercycling.org.
The course, while similar to last year’s, has been tweaked. In addition to the race, there will also be a BBQ, raffle and other contests.
This year also features a discounted registration for high school team cyclists. For complete registration information, visit Lander Cycling’s website.
Johnny Behind the Rocks is located on U.S. Highway 287 about five miles toward Jeffrey City from the U.S. Highway 28 intersection.
