GENERAL EVENT INFO:
This is a great race series, where the beer is more imprortant than the winner. We invite anyone to come and race or watch. There are kid's races, and categories for beginners to experts.
Race Overview Whitefish Mountain Resort is the place to ride a bike on Thursday nights this summer. It is as much about the party and the people as it is about the race. Come hang out, and ride your bike while you are at it. We expect 65-100 racers per night, Helmets are required to race.
Kids races Each week we will host a kid’s bike race before the adult race begins (Adult races start at 6:30. The first week we will race the kids just after the adult start. In the coming weeks we will try to run the kids just before the adult start at 6:20) Please register your child during registration. The course will be a short 200 yard loop on relatively flat ground, starting right at the Village Trailhead in the Upper Village Area. Get a ribbon and Icicle for racing! Help from parents is appreciated.
