Thanks so much for coming to Spring Thaw 2017! It was a memorable one! We heard such great things about the brand new Jabberwocky course. We saw so many beaming smiles. Glad y’all had a super fun day on the trails. Please send us your constructive feedback or ideas for next year, and let us know if you’re able to help/volunteer or would like to be a sponsor or vendor next year.

Ashland, Oregon’s Spring Thaw Mountain Bike Festival will be in its 27th year for 2018! 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 tracks in Southern Oregon with over 4,000 feet of climbing and descending for the elite and expert riders. The Downhill Event is on Sunday and starts at 4 Corners and uses some of our newest downhill trails including the new Jabberwockey.
We will have an “All Mountain” Champion for both the Men and Women. We will add your points from the XC and the Downhill races to see who is best. This is only for the Elite and Expert classes. Racers will be tested on not only their fitness but their overall skill on a mountain bike and you must compete on the same Bike!.
This race is proudly part of the Oregon Off Road Mountain Bike Series, or OBRA.
