Bike Joust Calcutta

The Bike Joust Calcutta is exactly what it sounds like. 16 riders will don homemade armor and duke it out, tournament style, until only one champion is left standing, obviously. Ridiculous, right? We think so too. Want to get in on the action? We can make that happen. Compete in the Tournament Businesses can sponsor a rider for $100. Space is limited to 16 competitors, so reach out soon! You can email Ben for more information. Participate from the Sidelines We're running the tournament this year as a Calcutta auction. Here's how it works: - The tournament starts with 16 riders. They will be seeded randomly into a single bracket. - Before each round of the tournament starts, each of the riders will be "auctioned" off. The bidder who "wins" each rider is in that rider's corner until he/she is eliminated. - All of the auction proceeds will go into a central pot. 50% of that pot will go to MTB Missoula, and 50% will go to the bidders who picked the winning rider. That will be split like this: Picked the winner from 16: 25% of the total Picked the winner from 8: 12% of the total Picked the winner from 4: 8% of the total Picked the winner from 2: 5% of the total - Bike Jousting is a silly thing, and the outcome of each bout is potentially subjective. Any judgement calls will be made at the discretion of the king and queen of the Bike Ball (the male and female volunteers with the most hours in 2019). Any questions? Reach out!

The BIG Raffle

Don't let the name fool you, the Classic Raffle is off the charts. But this time around we wanted to try something special, and we're calling it The BIG Raffle. Our friends and sponsors knocked it out of the park on this one, and we are pumped. Here's what you can win: Desert Single Track MTB Camp at The Cycling House Ditch the winter doldrums and get ready for a week of ripping trail in the sun. This is 6 days and 5 nights of top-notch food, trail, and accommodations with our friends at The Cycling House in Tucson, AZ. This is an all-expenses paid trip which includes round trip airfare from Missoula, lodging, food, guiding, and a world-class trail experience. We've been to The Cycling House. You want this trip. Redeemable in 2020 or 2021! Esker Elkat Complete Bike from Esker Teamwork makes the dream work, and our friends at Esker have some big ideas. This is a Montana company who has teamed up with the suspension genius of Dave Weagle to create the best-riding trail machine you can get. This raffle is for a complete Esker Elkat S build, in any size or color of your choosing. Kick off next season on a brand new whip, why don't you? Here's the deal: - Ticket Price: $60 - Only 100 tickets will be sold - Drawing at the Bike Ball (you do not need to be present to win) - Tickets are available at Zillastate Real Estate - 140 S 4th St W #3 - or reach out and we'll get you some

Kids' Party at Currents

Just because you've earned a night out with the old folks doesn't mean you need a babysitter. The good people at Missoula Parks and Rec and the Zootown Derailleurs are throwing a party for the kiddos at Currents Athletic Center. They'll have Parks and Rec staff running kids' programming from 5-10pm. They're pulling out all the stops for us, and only ask for a donation to MTB Missoula to drop the kids off at the pool. Questions? Reach out to Meg!

It's been one heck of a year, right? We opened the Hello Kitty flow trail at Marshall, kept the party rolling with free gravity racing, and took another big step toward a new trail network on Mount Dean Stone.


We can't do this without you, and so we'd like to say thanks. Join us for the Bike Ball and raise a glass to what we've done together and where we're all headed.
