BUTTE – The Montana National Interscholastic Cycling Association is hosting a sanctioned mountain biking race for Montana students on Saturday, Aug. 20th
The race will begin at the Big Butte Open Space Park, just west of the Montana Tech Campus. It’s the first race of the season, and the first-ever to be held at Big Butte.
Complete Schedule and Additional Details: Copper-Kings-Clash
This race is available for Montana students ages sixth grade through high school.
Race entries are included in your registration, and there is no extra cost for attending races.
Race plate pickup from the registration tent will be open on Friday 3:30 – 7:30 PM and Saturday 8:00 – 11:00 AM.
Remember, if you want to race, you MUST register and receive a numbered transponder plate.
Riders will immediately have an opportunity to sort out position with a nice start climb before getting into the meat of the course which is primarily single-track with a handful of two track sections thrown in for passing. Racers should be ready to communicate passing and cooperate with one another. The trail surface is made up of crushed granite, so be ready to either corner cautiously or do a bit of sliding if it is dry. Each lap is about 3.5 miles with 380 feet of climbing.
This special event still needs volunteers for both Friday and Saturday.
