The venues will be unveiled at a season kick-off party at A Racer’s Edge in Breckenridge from 5-8 p.m.

“There’s going to be some surprises,” said Mike McCormack of Maverick Sports, noting a new venue will be introduced for 2004 using one of Summit County’s most popular trails.

According to Jeff Westcott of Maverick Sports, the basic groundwork for the series will be laid out, as will formatting for the team competition.

The organization is also holding its third and final signup night for Mountain Bike Little League, a youth program that combines racing with environmental stewardship.

For $40, anyone under the age of 18 can enter the entire seven-race series. The fee covers entry fees, a team jersey and opportunities for group rides, trail maintenance and bike maintenance clinics .

While tonight will the last night that children can sign up for the little league, season passes for adults will be available until the first race in the Wednesday night series, the Frisco Roundup scheduled for June 9.

Season passes cost $90 and include all seven races, making one race free as opposed to paying the $15 day-of entry fee for each race.

Season pass participants will also receive a custom 2004 Summit Mountain Challenge hat, McCormack said.
