The Best of Both - A Unique New Bike Race in Bend, Oregon 2

62 miles on the road, transition, then 23 miles on singletrack

“The Best of Both” is a unique bicycle race to be staged in the beautiful mountain town of Bend, Oregon, on June 16th, 2018. The event combines road cycling and mountain bike riding within a conclusive race distance, bringing a cross-section of competitive bike racers together for the first time to compete head-to-head.  With multiple category options, including an "Open Pro" Men and Women's solo race, a Team Relay (one on the road, one on the dirt), an amateur solo race, and "The Heavy Metal Ride" an amateur category for steel and aluminum framed bikes, we encourage riders with a variety of skill and fitness levels to sign-up and compete in this unique event.

The full course distance, both on and off the road, is a little over 85 miles. The event staging area, including the start, finish, and the transition area, is within the event village at the Wanoga Snow Park on the Cascade Lakes Highway. Wanoga exists at 5,500 feet above sea level and provides stunning scenic views and incredible bike riding terrain. But this isn't JUST a race. For those who prefer to sit back and enjoy the view, we have a non-competitive "Challenge Ride" a category for those who wish to complete the course and bring their Sunday crew. 

In the evening, we descend to the HQ Of our Brewery sponsor; 10 Barrel, to party and celebrate a great day's work on the bike with King and Queen of Trails and Mountains jerseys and the purse/swag awards.

All relevant details can be found at the event website - We welcome you to compete in the ultimate dual-discipline bike race in the stunning town of Bend, Oregon on June 16th, 2018.
