The party continues with food and brews, and in select locations, a special guest to get you amped about riding.

The 20th Annual Chainbreaker XC

Presented by the Bend Endurance Academy

This is the 20th annual Cascade Chainbreaker presented by the Bend Endurance Academy.

Held entirely on the private land of the Skyline Forest, northwest of Bend, this course features an uphill gravel start, a mix of flowing singletrack and fast doubletrack for passing. The Two Bulls Fire destroyed much of the old course in 2014 so the 2015 course went to a longer single-lap format. With a generally non-technical beginner loop and usually friendly weather, it’s a great race for beginners to try some racing.

Food and drinks (and Chainbreaker IPA from Deschutes Brewery, of course) are available at the finish.

Free Kids Race; cash purse for top 5 men and top 5 women; and awards with goodie bags are held onsite.

For more information, visit the OregonXC Series website.

The Blitz: Bikes. Beer. Bend.

The Blitz Bike RaceThe Blitz is sort of a Cannonball run, lots of fun for the whole family.

It’s a bike race like no other, it has the racers racing all cycling disciplines like downhill, cross country, cyclocross and road, all on the same bike. The race starts at Wanoga Snow Park, down Funner, through COD, fly into Tetherow golf course to hit the big air prime, onto the road for the fastest on the road prime, back onto the course to the finish. Right when you think you’ve won the race you still have to chug a full pint of beer to officially finish and many victories have changed hands there.

Once the race is over we start the finish line festivities including raffles, kids games, food, drink while we’re all getting ready for the infamous Blitz world championship Arm Wrestling match that’s runs us into the awards ceremony and that’s a wrap.

Men’s and Women’s pro invite, $10,000 each, come and join the fun.

The 2017 High Cascades 100

The High Cascades 100 is a Central Oregon MTB race like no other!

Mud Slinger EventsIt challenges elite pro racers and hard core weekend chargers alike to cover 100 miles of amazing Central Oregon single track — and climb around 8,000′ in the process.

The course changes each year and will be posted on their website as race day gets closer.

Top pros will finish in under 8 hours duking it out the whole way, and it’s not uncommon for the last finisher to arrive at sunset around the 15 hour mark.

Now, a race like this is not to be taken lightly. As their website FAQ says: “Most likely injury: Collarbone followed by laceration.” If that sounds hard core (and it is), consider volunteering. Helping the athletes who compete in this race at aid stations, at the start, or at the finish is a fun experience — and something that feels great to be a part of. Contact the HC100 Volunteer Coordinator for more info.

Learn more about The High Cascades 100 at their website or view the 2016 High Cascades 100 results.
