Thanks for your interest in the Missoula XC, a staple of mountain bike racing in Montana since 2010. We’re proud of the the duality of the relaxed, fun atmosphere and a Euro, climbing style course. For 2022, we bring you the year of Crocs and Socks. We will modify the course slightly to add some technical features for our UCI racing. More age group and juniors racing.
The race and events business is supported by local sponsors. The Missoula XC is a way for pro and future pro riders to visit our town and also show support to our community. For coffee please visit Black Coffee Roasters. For drinks and fun visit Dram Shop, Grizzly Liquor, and Big Sky Brewery. For food consider Wally & Buck or Burns St. Bistro. If you are interested in properties or rentals talk with Jed at Zillastate. If you need Subaru work or your car brakes down let us know and we can get Ed at Kent Brothers on it. Our official race doctor and medical team is Rob Amrine, Missoula Bone and Joint and the Snowbowl volunteer ski patrol. We are also supported by a thriving bike shop community; MTCX, Hellgate Cyclery, Missoula Bicycle Works, Missoula Bike Source, Big Sky Bikes should be your choices for service and support. Andrew Plant is our official race mechanic. He owns and operates Wild Fox Bikes. He will be supporting the Women’s pro field with free service all week (paid for by MTCX). Please visit these locals businesses along the way. We are going to try and support you as much as possible. Whether it’s now or rooting for you at the Olympics. I travel the circuit as a professional announcer and love following the kids.
I get emotional writing about it, but the Missoula XC means so much to me and our community. Year 10, but better than ever. We are now in partnership with Marshall Mountain Park. They are a gold sponsor of the event but also partners in making the raddest bike park in America. Each year will get better. New this year the pro races will be broadcasted on our local ABC Montana TV station and available online.
Please come say hi to me at the race. If you are wearing Crocs, I know you get it :). Welcome to Missoula and welcome to our community.
We are offering a Wednesday Co-Ed Mountain Bike Clinic, 6/8/22 and a Women’s Only Mountain Bike Clinic Thursday, 6/9/22. Both clinics will be staffed by pro mountain bikers. They are at Marshall Mountain 5-8pm both nights. You must pre-register. Click Here to REGISTER
*Where to Stay
City Center Motel, one of our beloved sponsors, has graciously blocked off rooms for Missoula XC Participants. If you’re looking for an indoor place to stay, the City Center Motel, the perfect place for cyclists 1. because of the fabulous accommodations and 2. along with the fact that you’ll likely see Keyvin at our races– he’s a wealth of knowledge about local roads and trails. City Center Motel is right in Downtown Missoula, where you’ll want to be when you’re not on your bike or in the mountains. You can call and ask to book one of the rooms for MTCX’s Missoula XC, or you can reserve online here and use the access code MTCX for one our special rate rooms.
We’ll also have rooms blocked off at the Motel 6 in Downtown Missoula, as well. Give them a call or book online.
