Blackalicious is an American hip hop duo from Sacramento, California made up of rapper Gift of Gab (born Tim Parker) and DJ/producer Chief Xcel (born Xavier Mosley). They are noted for Gift of Gab’s often tongue-twisting, multisyllabic, complex rhymes and Chief Xcel’s “classic” beats. Like a few other West Coast rap acts, Blackalicious has generally favored what hip-hoppers call the “positive tip.” The lyrics have often been spiritual and uplifting rather than violent or misogynous. Like a lot of experimental alternative rappers, Blackalicious can be quirky and eccentric; nonetheless, spirituality is a big part of the group’s music. Although Blackalicious wasn’t formed until the early ’90s, its members had known each other since the late ’80s - See more at: http://www.crestedbuttearts.org/page.cfm?pageid=15425&eventid=445300&calendarid=25#sthash.eKJAQ04e.dpuf

 may be Colorado's original mountain bike town, but Hartman Rocks, just south, might be the state's best-kept secret.

Crested Butte, Colorado, is revered as one of the world’s great mountain bike destinations, but just 28 miles to the south on Highway 135 is one of the Centennial State’s most unheralded trail systems. Riders are just now beginning to discover the 40 miles of flowing singletrack at Hartman Rocks Recreation Area, which means you should beat the crowds and head there now.

Locals are reluctant to recommend one specific loop—they say the whole system is pretty amazing, with views that can extend for more than 100 miles on a clear day. You can link together any amount of riding, and be out on the trail for 4 or 5 hours with very little retracing of your path. Climbs aren’t long (most everything is under a 10-percent grade); there’s quite a bit of slickrock. The best time to ride? That would be right after a light rain, as the trails get tacky and traction is outstanding.

As with most off-the-beaten-track locations, your best option for an exceptional experience here is by hooking up with a local (one of the bike shops in town can help you there). There are maps—good maps—that can keep you from getting lost, but there are also lots of trail connectors and if you don’t know the area well, you’ll be stopping to refer to that map a lot.

Take Downtown’s main street, Elk Avenue, and transform it into a corduroy track extending to side streets, alleys, footbridges and the hilly outskirts. Throw in hundreds of nordic skiers dressed in some of the wackiest and wildest costumes ever. And you have the Alley Loop!

The Alley Loop is part of the American Ski Marathon Series and an American Birkebeiner qualifying race.  The Alley Loop’s one-of-a-kind course starts in downtown Crested Butte, meanders throughout the snow-lined alleys of downtown, over footbridges, alongside residences, and on to the nearby groomed Nordic trails just outside of downtown Crested Butte.

In addition to the fun races for all ages and abilities, the event also features a Friday night pub-ski crawl and an awards ceremony on Saturday with great prizes and a raffle.

The kids’ race begins at 9:30am. The first adult race starts at 9:40, with staggered starts after that.

Kids Awards (1.5k and 3k) will take place at 11:30am and Racer Awards (5k – 42k) will take place at 4pm at Montanya Rum Distillery.

For more information on the Alley Loop and a complete schedule of events, visit the Crested Butte Nordic Center website.
