The bike race combines the NW Cup (the best downhill bike series in the Pacific Northwest) and the Pro GRT (a national event sanctioned by USA Cycling).  What does that mean?  It means this race is is the biggest and baddest downhill race event Idaho will see this summer.

The resort will see over hundreds of the best downhill racers in the country all testing their mettle on Tamarack’s most burly trails.

Registration and more information can be found at NWcup.com or USAcycling.org.

Key Info:

Ticket / Season PassA three-day ticket for racers will be available for $60 on the day of the event.  But, you can purchase a season pass for just $129 through Tuesday, May 1 and for $149 through June 22. The pass can be used during the race. Plus, it can be used all summer long at Tamarack, and it comes with 2 free tickets to Silver Mountain Bike Park in Kellogg, ID.

Bike Park – The bike park is open to the public on Friday, July 27 and Saturday, July 28. The bike park is closed for racers only on Sunday, July 29.

Lodging – Tamarack has plenty of on-site lodging options, and bike storage for guests staying in the Lodge at Osprey Meadows. Lodging options can be found here. Competitors will receive a discount by using code: DH4LIFE online or by calling 208-325-1009.

Camping – There are 400 camp sites on Lake Cascade and within Lake Cascade State Park, just steps from the entrance to Tamarack. Camp sites can be reserved here. For anyone camping, these are highly recommended… but they sellout, so don’t wait.  Reserve them now.

Overflow Lot – RV/Campers – Tamarack’s overflow lot (near village, behind Seven Devils) will accept a limited number of RV/Campers to stay overnight. These spaces cannot be reserved, are available on a first come/first served basis, and do not have any electrical, running water or bathrooms. No tent camping allowed. We highly recommend reserving a spot on Lake Cascade, as the experience is far superior.

Dining – Seven Devils restaurant is open Thursday from 4pm to close, Friday from 11am to close, and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to close. Plus, Hot Shots Cafe is open in the sports dome daily at 9am for coffee and quick serve options.
