The birthday fun continues throughout the day with party games, live music, and birthday cake.

The Chainless World Championships (CWC), take place in Crested Butte today (Friday, June 24) . Though Crested Butte has held a chainless race in years past, this is only the second incarnation as a world championship race.

The race kicks off with a mass LeMans start at 4:00P.M. from the top of Kebler Pass and then heads down 7 miles of dirt and pavement to the heart of town.

For race updates and general shenanigans, be sure to check out the event’s Facebook page.

The CWC is part of the 31st annual Crested Butte Bike Week which started yesterday with Alison Gannett’s Rippin’ Chix Mountain Bike Camps for women and a “Night at the Museum” kick-off party at the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, 331 Elk Avenue.

Formerly Fat Tire Bike Week, the new name for this popular cycling week is “Michelob Ultra Crested Butte Bike Week”.  The Mountain States Cup Wildflower Rush runs through Sunday, and the Bridges of the Butte 24-Hour Townie Tour starts on Saturday.
