The Velorama Festival will not return in 2019. We are focusing our resources and efforts on the Colorado Classic, which we are transforming into one of the top standalone women’s pro bicycle races in the world.
Velorama was created as a companion music and cycling festival to the Colorado Classic as part of RPM Events Group’s mission to return pro bicycle racing to Colorado in a sustainable way and with meaningful social impact while showcasing Colorado. By pivoting the Colorado Classic to become a women’s standalone pro bicycle race, we can fulfill that mission without the need for Velorama. In fact, early and overwhelming support for the women’s race from sponsors, the cycling community and fans has been confirmation that this is the right thing to do.
We want to thank the tens of thousands of fans who attended Velorama; the amazing and diverse national and local bands who performed; the State of Colorado, the City of Denver and the RiNo neighborhood for hosting us; and the many exhibitors, sponsors, partners and artists who contributed to our event’s two-year run. We are proud of having produced an innovative festival that combined a love of music with a passion for all things cycling and Colorado, while creating positive social impact through contributions to, and partnerships with, cycling and community non-profits. We made some beautiful music and memories together.
Going forward, we are committed to making the Colorado Classic not only the premier women’s pro bicycle race in North America, but a movement that empowers and inspires women of all ages and abilities to seek equality in sports, business and life.
Thank you all for the opportunity to have created something special with Velorama.
