This race is one of the few races in Idaho that qualify for entry into the National Championships. The 2017 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.
