Raging River Mountain Bike Festival
NWMTB Series and Race Cascadia have collaborated to bring a two day MTB bike festival to the I-90 corridor July 28-29, 2018. We’ve planned an XC and CDC Enduro series race as part of a fun weekend party. These will be the first races held on the Raging River/Rattlesnake Ridge trail networks. We’re offering Short and Long XC course, Full and Enduro Lite courses. CASH Payout to the top 5 Pro/Open Cross Country Men and Women. Come for the ripping trails, stay for the after party! A portion of event proceeds and alcohol sales will go directly to those who have helped sculpt these trails and develop the next generation of shredders. Thank you Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and the Mount Si MTB Team.

*XC racers may not race Sunday’s Enduro. Enduro racers may race the XC on Saturday. Apologies for the shut out. We did not expect to sell out the CDC Enduro race so quickly.
All race participants receive one free meal, beer and raffle ticket for that day’s Clif Bar Festival. Kids In-field race is free. Please sign up your kiddo with our registration team before 1pm.
Courses subject to changes.
The Long Course (approx 25 miles) is designed to challenge you. This will get rowdy! using all the the new terrain including “Invictus”, “No Service” among other trails. We highly recommend pre-riding the Long Course before the weekend. Ideally you have a modern Full Suspension bike with a Dropper Post and aggressive tires. A fast time here is about 2:40H. Expect stocked Aid Stations on a well marked and well marshaled course. King County Search and Rescue, Snoqualmie Fire and professional Medics will be on site for your safety.
The Short Course (approx 16 miles) will be less intimidating, designed to challenge Beginner and Sport riders of various ages. It’s still a lot of up and down! You’ll enjoy the flow of the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail in both directions, the DH speed of the current “climbing trail”, tough Fire Road climbs and stunning views. A fast time here is about 1:40H.
BE WARNED there could be some rider overlap near the end of the course. Faster Long Course riders are expected to catch the back on the short course. Please be aware of what going on in front and behind you. King County Search and Rescue, Snoqualmie Fire and professional Medics will be on site for your safety.
Camping: Overnight camping offered at Snoqualmie Point Park. First come first serve. NO RV’s or TRAILERS allowed. Only Van’s and Tents. Please follow park attendants parking instructions upon arrival. Open to race camping after 6pm Friday 27th.
