The Spring Thaw Mountain Bike Festival is in it's 22nd year! It is one of the biggest and longest standing mountain bike events in Oregon's rich history of racing. It features a Cross Country Race on Saturday that utilizes some of the finest single track in Southern Oregon with over 4,000' of climbing and Descending for Elite and Cat 1. a little less for Cat 2's and a short course for Cat 3, Racers will be tested on not only there fitness but there skill on a Mountain bike as well. Sundays Downhill continues to grow with racers coming from Washington, California, Arizona and all over the state of Oregon. This year it will see some new changes. The Downhill will get 2 stages instead of 1 with the addition of a race run on BTI, a very popular trail that is at the end of the Cross Country race and near the venue. We are also putting points on all 3 of the stages, XC and the 2 DH stages and crowning an “All Mountain” Champion for both the Men and Women. (You must compete on the same Bike!) This race is proudly part of the Oregon XC series.

Deschutes Brewery is proud to be the beer sponsor and be sure to grab a beer from Woody (our giant wooden mobile beer bar) at Lithia Park.
