The Bearmouth Road Race will be the official Montana State Championship Road Race for 2021. Yeah!!!!!
A Montana tradition. We modified the course a bit to change it up and keep things fresh. You still get the nice pavement and fun riding of this area. It’s a great opportunity to get USAC points or just ride road bike with a group. COVID protocol will be in effect. So please adhere to those guidelines. 25 person groups and masks except while racing. Women’s and juniors categories are discounted to encourage participation.
This race will be a USAC sanctioned race. If you have a USAC Annual license please bring your license. I strongly encourage you to purchase your annual license prior to the event but annual licenses will also be available for purchase on-site. One-day licenses will also be available on-site.
