Think bikes, downhill riding, XC racing, slope-styling and gravel-grinding...smash them all together into one event and you have the 7th annual ‘GraviCross’ race, presented by 10 Barrel Brewing Company at Mt. Bachelor. This bike park inspired course will consist of approximately 5 miles of next level FUN!
The course will require riders to navigate over uphill climbs, downhill sections, bike park features, drops, berms, rock gardens, and other surprising obstacles. There will be multiple divisions with different time allotments — the fastest rider wins, with time bonuses for features and uphill sections taken into consideration. Prizes will also be awarded to men’s and women’s competitors with the best style off the NOKIAN tire drop and fastest uphill time through a designated, specific course section, pushing riders to their limits for up to $15,000 in cash and prizes.
GraviCross isn’t limited to adults – know any groms that want to lap the course and test their skills? We will host a GromCross and KidCross on Sunday on an adapted GraviCross course.

GROMCROSS & KIDCROSS
We're teeing up the next wave of GraviCross champs by offering kids and teens alike the chance to participate in their very own race event on Saturday, August 19th. The GromCross race will be conducted on the same mixed bike park-inspired, cyclo-cross course as Saturday's adult event, so these gravity-eager groms can really show off their skills! The GromCross competition will be broken down into two 'attitude' brackets — Chill and Core — allowing kids/teens aged 11-17 to choose how competitive they want to get.
KidCross is reserved for all the budding shredders and aspiring bike park senders ages 8-10 and 5-7. If your kiddo wants a more challenging race, they are welcome to level up to Grom.
GromCross (ages 11-17)
Cat 1 — 'Core'
Cat 2 — 'Chill'
KidCross (cat's determined by age group)
5-7 year olds
8-10 year olds
Even though this is a free event, participants must be registered online in advance by August 18, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. in order to compete. All registered competitors will receive a Junior's racer packet with swag from our sponsors.
