We want to give everyone, including E-Bike riders an opportunity to race, therefore the 35-mile Sport Race will have an E-Bike Category again this year!

When you register, you will notice 2 categories for each race: "Race Pace" and "Party Pace". To keep things running smoothly at the start line, we are encouraging you to register how you plan to race. These categories will determine the starting groups. "Race Pace" is for competitors that are out there to hammer hard all day, possibly looking to get on a podium. "Party Pace" is for the racers that like a little more room, that may be coming to the event with the goal of crossing the finish line, that are planning to ride with friends, and that may be stopping along the course to snap a pic or two.
First come, first serve camping is available right on site. Please note, the campground fills up nearly every weekend. Harmon Lake also provides a beach and other family fun activities. For those who prefer a hotel, Comfort Inn & Suites of Mandan is the official race hotel. Offering racers a discounted rate of $128 per night.
