It’s fun, fast and all downhill!
Coming in HOT for year number 8! A guaranteed good time with awesome snacks, delicious beer, and great company! This race is capped at 200 and fills up fast!

The three part drag race into Red Lodge, Montana from Red Lodge Mountain is one great way to kick off the spring race season. No need for crazy winter training or expensive race entry fees. All you’ll need is the want to rip it, grip it and hold on tight for the run to the finish.

The race kicks off from Midway Lodge with a fast downhill ski or snowboard turns as you rip down to the base area of Red Lodge Mountain. Click out of your boards and into your pedals and crank for town. It’s 7 miles of twisting downhill roads and leg screaming pavement. Before you’ll know it you be ready to embark on your final leg. This is the burn, just short of 3 miles, you'll push it all the way around the rodeo grounds. Once you’ve made it to the finish line, you can kick up your feet, enjoy a beverage and know that you got the first race of the season out of the way, no sweat!

This race is open to solo racers and relay teams. Awards for overall Male/Female solo, Co-ed/Male/Female teams and best costumes!

Add to Calendar 8/19/2021 8/21/2021 America/Denver Montana Cycling Project: WyMont A-B Challenge The Beartooth Pass, Chief Joseph Pass, Wyoming badlands and the friendly Bearcreek hill back into Red Lodge. Fully supported, includes hotels and route support. We are partnering with Samurai Sue's for healthy "gourmet" lunches; post ride appetizers and beverages from By All Means Brew Lab. This is not a ride for beginners. View Route, permit pending.

Why is this called the A-B Challenge? You will be riding directly through the CusterGallatin Absaroka-Beartooth National Forest. The AB Wilderness is home to the highest peak in Montana, Granite Peak, features high plateaus and glacier lakes. The blustery winds can bring sunshine, sleet, snow or rain. So if the mileage and elevation is easy for you, the environment can still challenge you.

This tour will be limited to 50 cyclists. (packet pick up August 18)

Add to Calendar 8/21/2021 8/21/2021 America/Denver The Nitty Gritty Off Road Race We’ve moved the race up a few weeks to reduce conflicts with other events. This off-road marathon will be held at Red Lodge Mountain Resort. In its sixth year running, the Nitty Gritty is starting to earn quite the reputation. And that is, that its, one nitty, gritty marathon with LOTS of climbing all on dirt roads and single track trails.

With a September date, your summer of running and racing will be what prepares you for this “battle royal” event. Form a six, three or two runner relay team to tackle the marathon, or if you have the grit, try the solo hot lap, half, or full marathon!

The Nitty Gritty embodies our motto the most out of any race: low key, high elevation. While the terrain is challenging, everything else is lowkey and there is distance for all abilities. Dogs are welcome to run with you on or off leash, the beer and snacks might be the biggest draw….second only to the awesome people! Small but mighty, this race is for those who love trail running and everything that comes with it! Bring your bear spray, camp chair, and good attitude.

So lay the peer pressure on your friends, because its time to get down to The Nitty Gritty!
