Gravity Race Series 2020 - Race #5

Fri, Aug 14

Time: 3:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: Mt. Bachelor
Back by popular demand, and with even more race dates on the calendar than last year, is Mt. Bachelor's Gravity Race Series! This unsanctioned series is for passionate local riders looking for fun and community camaraderie.

Each race in the series will be held on a different downhill track — put your skills to the test by competing in all six races or just register for the race day that features your favorite trail. Divisions are offered for Men, Women and Youth and will be broken down into Elite and Open categories based on ability. All competitors will race on the same course, but it's up to you to decide how extreme or enthusiastic you wish to be. 

Keep in mind, this is a series! Upon completion of the sixth and final Gravity Race this summer, we will crown ONE overall champion for the fastest combined time in ALL races (and offer a special prize!). So whether you love enduro or prefer going full tilt downhill, we invite you to join us for a summer of bike racing here at Mt. Bachelor!

Learn more about what to expect at events this summer and how we've adjusted operations in light of COVID-19 on our Events FAQ page.
