The Spring Thaw Mountain Bike Festival is in it’s 28th year! It is one of the biggest and longest standing mountain bike events in Oregon’s rich history of racing. It features a Cross Country Race on Saturday that utilizes some of the finest single tracks in Southern Oregon with over 4,000′ of climbing and descending for the elite and expert riders. The event starts on Saturday with the conditions permitting the 2060 XC loop and the Kid’s Race. Then continues on into Sunday with a Downhill race starting up at 4 Corners with a Downhill race. Also on Sunday there will be a shorter Downhill course for sport and beginners. This Downhill continues to grow with racers coming from Washington, California, Arizona and all over the state of Oregon. The Downhill is 2 stages instead of 1 with the addition of a race run on BTI, a very popular trail that is at the end of the Cross Country race and near the venue. We are also putting points on all 3 of the stages, XC and the 2 DH stages and crowning an “All Mountain” Champion for both the Men and Women (Only Elite and Expert combined and you must compete on the same Bike!)
Racers will be tested on not only their fitness but their skill on a mountain bike as well.
