The Mystic MTB Trail Race

The Mystic MTB Trail Race is proud to announce that the inaugural event is coming to Bozeman, Montana on July 19, 2014.

Featuring 40 miles of challenging climbs, world-­‐class descents and remote scenery, the Mystic MTB Trail Race offers mountain bikers an opportunity to challenge themselves on some of the most enjoyable connector trails in the Gallatin National Forest.

Originating at the Bear Canyon Trailhead just east of Bozeman, the race takes riders over ridgelines, past alpine lakes and down flowing drainages while exploring the abundant trails throughout the Gallatin National Forest.

“We are very excited about this course,” said co-­‐director Steve Lowry. “After years of exploring these incredible trails, we decided that it was time to host an event and show riders what Bozeman has to offer. While this course is only a sampling—from steep, difficult climbs to giggle-­‐inducing descents—we think it’s a great offering that any mountain biker will be thrilled to experience.”

The event will take place one week after the Bohart Bash, a longstanding Bozeman area mountain bike race and one week prior to the Butte 100, one of the most difficult mountain bike races in the country, which takes place on the Continental Divide Trail.

Mystic MTB Trail Race plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to mountain bike advocacy and trail maintenance groups in the Bozeman area.

Interested riders can register for the race online at until July 17 and in person July 18-­‐19—early registration is encouraged and will cost $30 until June 15.
