This race is one of the few races in Idaho that qualify for entry into the National Championships. The 2014 Spider race features a fun, easy, 9 mile lap course with rolling terrain and terrific spectator viewing. The course includes the imfamous "Skateboard Park" descent, a twisting, turning tunnel of thrills. There is a new climbing section near the end of the course, so you might want to inspect? This section winds around the front of the old "fill yer pants drop".

LOCATION - Hemingway Butte OHV Area, 17 miles southwest of Nampa, Idaho, off Hwy 45, (Reynolds Creek Rd.)
FREE, dry camping on-site. We encourge folks to camp in dry locations around the race course. Come celebrate the PREMIERE spring opener for Idaho XC Mountain biking.

EXPO opens at 9am. Medical service provided by OWYHEE Volunteer Search and Rescue.
