Local News

FRUITA, Colo.- The 2019 Salty Cross at Little Salt Wash Park in Fruita happened this weekend.

Bike riders of all ages compete on a cyclocross course that tests both road biking and mountain biking skills.

The event drew people of all ages and skill levels.

Cyclocross is not your typical bike race. It involves riding off-road, up steep hills, and along the street at times. Riders even have to get off their bike and carry it over obstacles on parts of the course.

This race was put on by Mad Racing Colorado, a bike racing company based in Grand Junction.
