Spout Springs Ski Area, Tollgate, Oregon
"Ride the Unknown!"
See more information and register for the race.
A challenging climb up Spout Springs ski hill frees you to enjoy the pure bliss of fast singletrack rolling through the Blue Mountains of Northeast Oregon. Experience trails that many MTBers don't know about in an area with some phenomenal singletrack mountain biking.
The weather is usually perfect this time of year in the Blue Mountains and there are several recreation opportunities nearby, and plenty more trail to mountain bike. With many camping opportunities right by the race venue and hotels within an hour drive, plan to make this an extended vacation or family outing of the summer.
The 3 groups will start around 11 am with a short time gap between each.
Prizes & Awards
Obligatory swag giveaways will be presented at the awards ceremony. Cash primes of $100 each will be awarded to the KOM and QOM on the first climb. Additional cash prizes may be awarded if registration numbers allow for this. These will be announced in advance of the race.
A couple miles down the highway either way from the resort will land you a campground, Woodward and Woodland. The Woodland Campground to the east is very close to part of the race course. There are also free primitive camping places off of Balloon Tree Rd, Woodland SnoPark, and anywhere you find a pull-out as the surrounding area is Forest Service land open to public camping. The nearest hotels are less than an hour drive in La Grande, Pendleton, and Walla Walla.
