The Mount Ogden 100k is one event in an exciting new wave of mountain bike races sweeping across Utah. Challenging. Scenic. Rewarding. Are all words used to describe this new breed of racing and all apply to the Mount Ogden event.

Each 50 kilometer lap, located in Snowbasin Resort, features almost 5,000 vertical feet of climbing and a fist full of gnarly descents. Riders wind their way up the mountain through scrub oak and aspens finally ending with a technical rocky descent taking them all the way down the mountain in 45 minutes of non-stop DH fun.

365 riders from 25 different states signed up for either the 25, 50, or 100k distances with the 100 being the marquee event on schedule.
