45th Elk Basin Cross Country @ Elk Basin
Jun 27 – Jun 28 all-day

[caption id="attachment_4982" align="alignright" width="292"]406XC Montana Cross Country Race Series 406XC Montana Cross Country Race Series[/caption]

BMC’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.

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).

4-Hour Marathon Cross Country @ BMC Grounds
Oct 4 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

4 Hour Marathon Cross Country BMC

The BMC Four Hour Marathon Cross Country Marathon is exactly what it sounds like … a non-stop four hour endurance race with rider teams of two, with each rider completing two laps before the rider change.

The Four-hour marathon race currently takes advantage of a large portion of the 1,421 acre space using the Motocross Track, the Endurocross Track and miles of wild bad lands terrain to hold a challenging race for the pros and an appropriate version for youth riders.

In addition to sage brush side-hilling, single tracks, deep coulees, winding uphill shots, wide sweepers, snaking-through-the-trees lines, and rocky rooty sections, this cross country course is a great ride. Competitors pull the trigger and spectators enjoy a family picnic style day, with wide a variety of viewing locations at an awesome Autumn BMC moto event.

Adults $10 per day, Kids 10 and under Free with paid adult.
