Bike Competition & Clinics

Racing is the proving grounds of any sport, and the Northwest Tune-Up certainly wouldn’t be a bike festival without a little friendly—yet at times fierce—competition. Galbraith Mountain will be home to on-hill races like the Cascadia Dirt Cup Enduro, while the waterfront will host the spectator friendly Pumptrack Drag Race and riding clinics.


Specialized Galbraith Mountain Enduro Presented by Soil Searching

Registration Opens:
April 2nd, 2022 at 9am PST

This four to six stage enduro race is a bonus race of the Cascadia Dirt Cup series and will be held on Galbraith Mountain for two full days. In traditional format, the downhills are timed and uphill climbs are mandatory, but not included in racers’ overall time. Competitors can expect a racecourse that is more technical than a traditional cross-country course, with a healthy dose of climbing thrown in. The race will be broken into categories between Saturday and Sunday.

Race Categories:
Adults: Saturday, July 9th, 2022
Youths: Sunday, July 10th, 2022

Maxxis Pumptrack Drag Race Presented by Evil Bikes

Registration Postponed until:
June 16th, 2022 at 9am PST

This head-to-head format puts racers against each other throughout a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by "pumping"—generating momentum with body movement instead of pedaling. Competitors will race down and back on the new “singletrack sidewalk” along the Waterfront’s Granary Avenue, the perfect place to watch with a tasty beverage in hand.
