Race Directors Message

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 2023, we are bringing the crewneck sweatshirts and tube socks.  Also, more racing.  4 days of racing starting on Thursday.

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.  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 11, 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.  Welcome to Missoula and welcome to our community.

CAMPING

We’ve worked with local land owners in Missoula to secure free dispersed camping.  It’s off Reserve street at 2405 Micheal Road.  I will have porta poties, hand washing stations, and some potable water for folks.  It’s a donations welcome type thing, so no reservation needed.  It’s a 10 minute drive to the venue, but a longer bike ride to get over there (roughly 10 miles).

TEAM SPACE

We will be reserving team space through online registration.  We are back to opening up the Marshall Mountain Parking area for teams.  Mike will be running the show on our end.  We are excited to party with you.  Here’s the link to reserve your team area.
