SBT GRVL NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-August 11, 2021-The acclaimed gravel cycling race, SBT GRVL, will pedal its way into Steamboat Springs on Sunday, August 15, and bring with it riders of all abilities and some street closures for the weekend. 

Now in its third year, SBT GRVL is a world-class gravel race experience held on the gravel roads in and around Steamboat Springs and Routt County. Gravel riding is a relatively new sport where competitors ride on unpaved roads including dirt, gravel, and mixed-surface terrain. The event was founded by three Steamboat Springs’ locals. 

The following impacts will occur on Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15. 

Saturday, August 14
Yampa Street will be closed from 9th to 11th Streets with 10th Street closed from Yampa to the alley. Saturday closures run from 6am to midnight except for 12th and Yampa along with 11th and Yampa which will see overnight closures. 

Sunday, August 15
The same Yampa Street closure is in effect on race day from 9th to 11th Streets as well as 12th Street from Yampa to Lincoln Ave and 10th & 11th Streets from Yampa to the alley. These closures will run until around midnight.  

With all four courses returning to town from 13th Street, the shoulder of eastbound Lincoln Avenue from 13th Street to 12th Street will be closed and used by racers. In addition, the SST stop at 13th and Lincoln will be closed on Sunday and passengers should use the 11th and Lincoln bus stop. 

All four courses, which vary in length from 37 miles to 142 miles, leave downtown Steamboat Springs via Lincoln Avenue (US Highway 40) west to Elk River Road North (CO 129) before branching out on their individual routes. Each race distance will roll out of town in a mass start format beginning at 10th and Yampa Street with start times at 6:30am (Black), 7:00am (Blue), 7:30am (Red) and 7:45am (Green).

All racers will return to town via 13th Street to Lincoln Avenue (east), turning right on 12th Street to the finish line on Yampa and 11th Streets. First finishers are anticipated to complete the course at 9:30am (Green) and 1:00pm (Black). Awards and Block Party run until around 9pm.
