2019 NEWS & UPDATES
Sat 06/22 - Wow! Registrations have been coming in strong this past week. Check out the call-up list with the 150+ racers who have already signed up to race! More great news: we were able to extend the deadline for the personalized race plates with an extra 2 days. In other words, if you pre-register online by tomorrow (Friday June 21), you will not only save $10 on race day, but also get to race with a personalized race plate, featuring your name and team name!
In addition, the first 250 racers to pre-register will receive a very cool racer glass (this year we opted for a very unique “tall boy” can design!) and a classy finisher tag.

Wed 04/24 - Join us on Sunday June 30 for the tenth edition of the Six Hours of Mt Hood , Oregon's marquee Mountain Bike Endurance & Relay Race, presented by Sellwood Cycle Repair!
Come race - as a two-person team or solo - with hundreds of other mountain bike enthusiasts, for six hours straight, on a fun and varied loop at the Skibowl Mt Resort (in Government Camp, OR).
The 5.5-mile course (6.8 miles for solo racers) features plenty of smooth-rolling, twisty singletrack trails through beautiful forests. The estimated elevation gain per lap is about 850' (1,100' for solo riders). Each lap, racers will get treated on great views of Mt Hood, a fully-stocked aid station, free mechanical support, non-stop race announcing & music, and a ton of cheers from their fellow racers.
On Sunday morning, before the race, we'll serve free coffee and hot Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats. At the end of the event, racers will enjoy a free post-race chili meal, $1 beers, and a free entry in our post-race raffle.
The start/finish area is at Skibowl West, next to the main parking lot (right off Highway 26), so you'll have easy access to your car throughout the day.
