Description

Our weekly Friday MTB series is back for 2022!  6 weeks of racing. These races are a fun, annual event in Missoula, great for seasoned riders or for riders who want to dip their toes into riding mountain bikes. We pride ourselves in being a welcoming, inclusive community, and love seeing new riders in the mix. Open to all ages with categories for all abilities. Challenge yourself on difficult courses and against the best riders in your category

We have two separate start times, courses, and vibes.  The 4:30pm will always be on a less technical course, and a shorter duration.  This is designed for non elite juniors and kids, beginner/intermediate mountain bikers, and heavier riders.  The 6pm will be a separate start for elite and open riders who want to push the pace and see where they stack up.  The Course is more technical and longer duration.
