Friday, August 6, 2010
If you like tough, challenging cross-country races, don't miss the Big Sky XC.
Racers and fans can get lodging discounts for the Big Sky XC event in Montana. If you’re on the fence about this race, maybe saving a few bucks on the room at the Big Sky Resort will help make up your mind. Everything we’ve heard about the race indicates that it’s worth attending. The following is a press release from Klim.
Round 6 of the AMA West Hare Scrambles Championship Series is quickly approaching. The series travels to Big Sky country August 21-22 to compete on the rocky ski slopes of Lone Peak Mountain at Big Sky Resort. Just north of Yellowstone National Park, the Klim Big Sky XC promises to offer an exciting and challenging venue. All eyes will be on undefeated Brian Garrahan of Boulder Creek, Ca as he fights for a perfect season.
On Sunday spectators will have the opportunity to watch Garrahan and the rest of the racing action from the resort’s Swift Current ski lift. The lift rises 1,647 feet out of the base area to the top of the race course, near the mountain’s tree line. From the top of the lift, adventurous spectators will be able to hike down to the infamous Rock Garden, a 200 foot uphill rock climb reserved for the experts and pro Black Diamond race course. The base area will feature a lawn chair friendly endurocross section, perfect for families to enjoy the racing action.
Youth and novice racers will be competing for national title points on Saturday on the Green Circle course. Intermediate races on the Blue Square course kickstart at 9:30am on Sunday and the 3 hour expert/pro races leave the starting line at 12:30 pm.
Lodging discounts are offered for racers and spectators by simply mentioning the Klim Big Sky XC to the resort’s central reservations department: 800-548-4486.
