On Sunday morning, the Ascent Cycling Series kicks off another season of mountain bike racing at Sand Creek Sports.

Race director Andy Bohlmann is no stranger to the cycling business. He has organized nearly 100 races since starting the series with his wife, Kathleen, in 1993.



The intense involvement in mountain biking began in 1991 when the couple was contacted to put on a special event for the Junior World Championships in Colorado Springs. The following year, they were asked to organize the mountain biking state championships. With additional resources and a wealth of experience, the Bohlmanns took on a greater challenge: a biking series in Colorado Springs.

“There was no series here,” Andy said. “We had the courses, a few sponsors and the riders so we said, ‘Let's do it!’”
