Chainless World Championships
Only in Crested Butte would we come up with a gravity-fed race like this. Bigger bikes. Bigger costumes. More ridiculous antics. Do whatever it takes to get you here in time for the Chainless. It’s probably the best time you can have for $30 ($35 day-of).
Racers weigh down their bikes, put on ridiculous costumes, and remove their chains before racing the seven miles from Kebler Pass into downtown Crested Butte. The race starts at 4:20 pm sharp, and the one who stays off her brakes the most wins. Well, actually, everybody wins. Even the spectators hanging out at the end of Elk to watch the carnage.
