Big time race at Big Sky

It was race day in Big Sky this past weekend. Over 250 racers participated in Big Mountain Enduro’s mountain bike race in Big Sky on July 24-25. This year marked the third time that Big Mountain Enduro’s tour has come through Big Sky. Last year, Big Sky’s stop was one of the only one’s on the tour during their COVID riddled season.

 Patrick Rooney, accompanied by his dog, Juneau, had a trailer of sorts attached to his bike, carrying a variety of tools. Many people on Mountain to Meadow on Sept. 19 had done trail maintenance before, including some Terraflow folks. Rooney encouraged volunteers to ask questions and not go all in with an axe right away. “A lot of times less can be more, and again it’s easy to get overzealous, but ultimately we’re going to make the trail better,” he said.

Conversations about developing a Big Sky chapter of the Southwest Montana Mountain Biking Association (SWMMBA) began in June at Beehive Basin Brewery.
