|The 2017 Missoula XC Pro XCT is back again as a UCI C2 event for both UCI Elite and UCI Junior Elite riders. A brand new amateur course features longer laps and mellower terrain than the UCI Elite course.
|We heard once that idle hands to the Devil’s work. Well that makes sense, because I don’t remember having much to do back in the summer of aught-ten, and we’ve heard more than a few people describe the climbing on this course as “pure evil.” The 5 km trail was purpose built for UCI sanctioned, World Cup style cross country mountain bike racing, and we like to think of it as a little bit of a throwback to when mountain bike racing was mountain bike racing. We’ve got steep climbs, flowing bermed corners, and even the chance to hang it out a little bit on a gap jump for those so inclined.
The amateur course includes brand new trails that extend to the upper mountain.
