46th Elk Basin Cross Country @ Elk Basin
Jun 26 @ 8:00 am – Jun 27 @ 4:00 pm

406XC Montana Cross Country Race SeriesBMC’s World Famous Elk Basin Cross Country race returns once again, and is part of the 406 XC series and the Wyoming WORRA 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.

Wyoming WORRA Offroad Race Series

The Competition Course

The full course A/B course will be approximately 20 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.

Free Entry, Free Camping

No Gate Fee for Spectators, Free Camping/Parking (BLM Land).
