Elk Basin

406XC Montana Cross Country Race Series

BMC’s World Famous Elk Basin Cross Country race returns once again, and is part of the 406 XC series. Rider athletes know to expect a challenging course consisting of miles of single track, rocks, sagebrush, hill climbs, descents, ascents, side hills, sand sections, rocky runs, root ways, timber limb dodging, a few natural jumps and everything in between that requires top-notch endurance for both the rider and the bike.
 
Elk Basin outside of Belfry Montana is considered high desert Bad Lands terrain and is no walk in the park by any means. Many top competitors in the Pro classes can find their body or bike unable to finish and that is why fans and rider teams will see a “No Whimps Allowed” sign at the event entrance.

The Competition Course

The full course A/B course this year is 25+ miles to complete a single lap and course design changes each year to keep the event ride dynamic and ever-changing. Youth Classes, Women and Open C race Saturday; and although not as difficult or as long a course, still challenges the kids and beginners and they are just as enjoyable to watch. A and B classes race Sunday on the big course.
Fans and riders typically make it a whole weekend and camp, with a Pre-Ride Fun Run on the main course after Saturday’s races, yarn-telling around the evening campfires and the main Events starting Sunday morning. The schedule is below and times are tentative.
