The Six Hours of Mt. Hood Is Approaching

One of our favorite mountain bike races of the year is approaching.  Here are the details:

 

Come race - as a two-person team or solo - with hundreds of other mountain bike enthusiasts, for six hours straight, on a fun and varied loop at the Skibowl Mt Resort (Government Camp, OR). The 6-mile course features plenty of fun, twisty singletrack trails through beautiful forests. The estimated elevation gain per lap is about 800'. Each lap, racers will get treated on great views of Mt Hood, a fully-stocked aid station, free mechanical support, non-stop race announcing & music and a ton of cheers from their fellow racers. At the end of the event, racers will enjoy a free post-race chili meal, $1 beers, courtesy of our beer sponsorHopworks Urban Brewing, and a free entry in our post-race raffle. The start/finish area is at Skibowl West, right next to the main parking lot (right off Highway 26) so you'll have easy access to your car in between laps.
