Join us for a full weekend of events and tons of trails to ride… Downhill racing, enduro racing, dirt jump jam, and a few extra excursions!
6 enduro stages, over 2 days of racing. 2000-2500 feet of climbing each day! Single day racing for beginners and youth categories.
Two days of downhill racing, on two different courses!
Hub-a-Palooza is a 3 day mountain bike festival that takes place at Beacon Hill (Camp Sekani) in Spokane, WA. Past participants would tell you that it is one of the BEST ways to start off your race season. With events going all day long, a schedule allowing riders to compete in all events if they so choose, you won’t find yourself sitting around for hours waiting for your start time.
This is our 5th Hub-a-Palooza, but our 10th year putting on this event at Beacon Hill. Over the years we have watched this event and the trail system that it operates on, flourish… We are excited to share some new trail developments with you, and show you why people make Beacon Hill a destination for riding nearly year-round.
THE PEOPLE’S ENDURO DETAILS –
This event will now be a two day race for everyone except beginner racers! A lot of racers asked for more riding, and we are happy to provide that… All sport/expert/pro racers should expect 2000-2500 feet of climbing per day, but the race will start off early enough
