Description

Mullet Cycling Classic is happening on Friday, June 02, 2023 at 05:30PM MDT at 5250 Marshall Canyon Rd.

Business in the front. Party in the back. The Mullet Cycling Classic is a two-rider relay race where one racer handles the uphill "business," the other racer the downhill "party." Stick around after the race for the Missoula mountain biking party of the summer!

For racers in the "TGIF MTB League," individual placement at The Mullet does not count towards your series scoring.

Registration & Format

  1. Form a two-racer team from the following categories:
    - Male Team
    - Female Team
    - Co-ed Team
    - Youth & Role Model Team (any combo of a youth and adult racer)

  2. Register, pay entry fee, and either create a new team or join an existing team.

  3. Teammates can register separately and select their team from the drop down menu. Alternatively, one team member could register both racers at the same time.

The race begins with a Le Mans start in the base area. "Business riders" run to their bikes and ascend the course. They may encounter some limited descending and technical challenges, but let there be no mistake -- this stage is for the legs and the lungs.

Then, the "Party rider" completes the descending segment, their choice of either Hello Kitty (blue) or Bjorn Again (black). Riders will be staggered to ensure a clean, open course for their race.

SAFETY WARNING: Bjorn Again is a black diamond rated downhill trail. Only riders who have previously ridden Bjorn Again will be allowed to chose this route. Please use extreme caution. Highly advised that riders under 12 do not chose this trail. Beginning to intermediate descenders will not be allowed on Bjorn Again. You must chose your trail at rider registration.

Additional info:
