Missoula XC 2021 – Second Update

Mar 21, 2021 | Uncategorized

June 11, 12 * 2021 * Missoula, MT

Hello Riders, Coaches, Parents,

This email is being sent to past Missoula XC Racers.  This is the second update in regards to the 2021 Missoula XC.  To read the first update, click this link.

INTRODUCTION:
My name is Shaun Radley.  I was the original race promoter for the Missoula XC.  I’m a supporter and partner of MTB Missoula and continue to work closely in making Missoula a better mtb town.  I started my own bike, nordic, and events business.  Part of my mission is to promote local racing while also helping give opportunities for high level pro and junior racing.  I can be reached at montanacyclocross@gmail.com or 406-544-5270.

NEXT EMAIL UPDATE: 4/4/21

CURRENT PREDICTED REGISTRATION OPEN DATE: 4/5/21

CURRENT COVID RACE UPDATE:

In working with the Missoula County Health Department, UCI, USA Cycling, and race doctors we have decided to host a UCI pro and UCI juniors short track and xc on June 11th and 12th.  I will update the race schedule, provide a full COVID protocol and open registration by 4/5/21.  Links to all this information will be provided in the 4/4/21 update.

If COVID cases surge within Missoula County then the race format will change, or potentially be cancelled.  The key metric for Missoula County is a rolling 7 day average of over 25 new cases per 100k.  Currently Missoula County is at 16.  That is why I’m going to work towards opening registration and come up with a scaled down plan to host the race.  If you register and the race is cancelled I would provide a FULL REFUND.

I will be providing a USA Cycling age group XC Race on June 5th (the weekend before).  It will be on the pro xc course at Marshall Mountain.  This will the best bet for local and regional racers (non UCI) to earn points within their age group.  Registration for this race will open the same day 4/5/21 and will be paired with the Montana State Road Championships on June 6th.  Registration will be open to 100 racers total.

I apologize that we can’t all be together on the weekend of the 11th and 12th.

Thanks for understanding and look for the next update 4/4/21.

Best,
Shaun
