Race Information

Wednesday, June 15, 2016: Wednesday Night Racing!

Here’s your chance to see the Missoula XC UCI course at race pace. Racing starts at 6:15. This is also a chance for amateurs to compete for the opportunity to race against the pros at the Eliminator on Thursday Night. We’ll be running hot laps on a short course to see who makes the cut!

Thursday, June 16, 2016: Eliminator

Come on down to Caras Park for Dinner in the Park with a Missoula XC twist. All the usual food vendor suspects will be there, but preregistered riders will also be able to pick up packets, snag an autograph or photo with some of the pros, or grab some schwag from one of our great sponsors.

The real show starts at 6pm when the Eliminator kicks off right downtown. Come watch the best in the game tackle a challenging urban course head to head.

For the Kids

If everyone is racing, who’s watching the kids? The good people at the MORE Program (Missoula Outdoor Recreation and Education) have stepped up to offer bicycle and adventure programs for children during all of the races this summer. They’ll have folks on staff to keep an eye on the kiddos (ages 2 and up!) while you’re doing the race thing. A suggested donation of $5 per child covers their overhead, and all proceeds go to supporting outdoor recreation and educational opportunities for kids in Missoula. Feel free to get in touch with Meg Whicher at Parks and Rec with any questions: mwhicher@ci.missoula.mt.us
