Deep Woods Racing in Thompson Falls, MT
Spirit of the Backcountry
The Iron Daisy Enduro is a 2-day, partner format enduro race. It’s a backcountry racing experience on raw, undiscovered singletrack in the heart of the Rocky Mountain west, featuring two big days of racing and the best parts of any weekend bike vacation: great food, camping, and exploring new trail with your buds.
This is a partner format enduro race. Over two days, you and a teammate will traverse 50 miles of untamed singletrack in the Montana backcountry.
The course is remote, the consequences are real. In the spirit of a backcountry adventure race you’ll need to look out for your teammate as well as the other racers.
This event is built on the same foundation as MTB Missoula itself: the idea that stewardship and responsible use are core values of recreation. We’re proud to partner with the US Forest Service to provide access to trails where eviscerated budgets and maintenance backlogs have closed them. Together, we have opened dozens of miles of singletrack in the Thompson Falls area, and we feel pretty strongly that it’s worth checking out. That’s why we’re here, it’s what we do.
Proceeds from this event go directly toward the stewardship and trailbuilding efforts of the team at MTB Missoula. So whether you’re racing for first, working hard to make the time cutoffs, or just looking forward to a cold beer at the end, you know you’re in it for the right reasons.
