UPDATE 7/6: THANKS to everyone who came out to Skibowl last Sunday - to race, to spectate, or to provide support - and for what turned out to be a tough but super-fun race on a gorgeous summer day up on the mountain! Results of yesterday's race have been posted on OBRA. Check back soon for podium shots and various other photos from the finish line. We hope everyone had a great time and we're looking forward to seeing you all back next year: Sunday July 1 2018... Mark your Calendars!
Also, check out the very cool recap video below that CX Pistols rider Patrick Croasdaile made for our title sponsor Sellwood Cycle Repair and which perfectly captures the unique vibe of the Six Hours of Mt Hood.
Join us for the eighth edition of the Six Hours of Mt Hood - XC Mountain Bike Endurance & Relay Race!
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 (in Government Camp, OR).
The 5.5-mile course (6.8 miles for solo racers) features plenty of fun, twisty singletrack trails through beautiful forests. The estimated elevation gain per lap is about 860' (1,085' for solo riders). 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.
On Sunday morning, we'll serve free coffee and hot Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats. At the end of the event, racers will enjoy a free post-race chili meal, $1 beers, courtesy of our beer sponsor Hopworks Urban Brewery, 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.
