The GoPro Mountain Games is officially the latest stop on the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour (FMB), which really substantiates the legitimacy of the Games. The Games are now getting bumped up to a world class event, and should really make Vail a hotspot in June. The games at Vail cover a huge plethora of athletic endeavors, including bike racing, climbing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, slackline, standup paddle, running, dogs and the ultimate mountain challenge.
The GoPro Mountain Games are the country’s largest celebration of outdoor sports and lifestyle. At the GoPro Mountain Games, amateur and professional athletes from nine sports and 25 disciplines converge on the rivers and trails of Vail, Colo., to compete for more than $100,000 in prize money during a weekend filled with free concerts, expos and parties. The GoPro Mountain Games are a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information, visit www.gopromountaingames.com.
