OVERVIEWA re-imagination of a Colorado off road cycling monument. The new Vail 100 offers a "choose your weapon" style course with three different distances and multiple categories. Authentic Colorado cowboy vibe mixed with a generous dose of hipster mustache wax and Lil' Nas X.Every rider gets a mountain of swag, all the food that they can eat and a post race hoedown with great food, killer beer and live music.FOR A GOOD CAUSEColorado currently ranks 48th in the nation in education. Our teachers rank 50th in compensation. Like most mountain communities, there's a wide economic spectrum. It can be tough to eke out a living here. Low wages and a prohibitively expensive housing market make it especially difficult for educators.With that in mind, we've elected to name the Education Foundation for Eagle County as The Vail 100's primary beneficiary. EFEC bridges the gap in lost state and federal education funding in Eagle County, a number currently pegged at $2800 per student. EFEC also generates funding for in-school programs for enrichment and mental health, along with their efforts to retain top teacher talent. A portion of Vail 100's fundraising efforts benefits local sports clubs including the Vail Mountaineers Hockey Club and the Vail Valley Lacrosse Club. These proceeds are allocated to scholarship funds which fund participation by families who might normally not be able to take part.We/I don't have a grand plan, or an altruistic world-changing vision. My wife and I simply want to recognize and reward the organizations in which we believe and which have enriched our lives and those of our children.Our patronage plan will undoubtedly evolve in the coming years. The important thing today isn't to start perfectly, but simply to start.LARGE CALIBER SWAG CANNONEvery rider receives;A $100 credit in the Vail 100 Mercantile.
