THE BLITZ

The Blitz mountain bike race features the 40 best pro men and women riders in the nation. The Blitz is more than just a race. It is a spectacular competition encompassing four primes within the race. The marquee event is still the race to the finish at Tetherow, but to spice things up a little, we have added three cash prizes (primes) along the route, plus our own arm wrestling championship at the finish.

The race to start the race. Riders sprint around the Wanoga Snow Park starting loop, off the pavement and through two big boulders near the beginning of the Funner Trail. The first rider through the boulders wins the Hole Shot prime and $500 in the bank.

Big Air

 

The Big Air competition is at the Tetherow golf course. The riders launch off a rock onto a landing ramp as part of the race. Riders not taking the jump have to take the looong way around. The rider with the biggest air and best style wins the Big Air prime and $500 in the bank.

Fastest on Pavement


Fastest on Pavement

The Fastest on Pavement is just as it sounds. We send someone down through the Tetherow round-a-bout at the bottom of the hill with a radar gun to clock the fastest speed. The rider with the fastest speed wins the Fastest on Pavement prime -- and $500 in the bank.

Arm Wrestling


Arm Wrestling

Yep! That's right. What would a bike race be without a little arm wrestling? Watch your favorite athlete pound it out in the Arm Wrestling Championship. They look skinny, but they're pretty strong. Last rider with their arm off the table wins the Arm Wrestling prime and $500 in the bank. (Notice a theme?)
