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. 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.

NEED TO KNOW
*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.

Courses subject to changes. Complete course details, length, elevation and downloadable GPX files later this spring.
The Long Course (approx 30mls) 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.
The Short Course(approx 18mls) 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. Expect stocked Aid Stations on a well marked and well marshaled course.
Camping: Overnight Tent/Van camping is allowed on a first come basis. No RV’s, Trailers or 5th Wheels. There are no hook-ups. Register with us prior to arriving.
