Bike Races & Clinics
Racing is the proving grounds of any sport, and Northwest Tune-Up wouldn’t be a bike festival without a little friendly—yet fierce—competition. Galbraith Mountain is host to the Cascadia Dirt Cup Enduro and on-hill bike clinics, while the waterfront features the spectator-friendly Pumptrack Drag Race and various riding workshops.
Galbraith MTN Enduro
July 13-14, 2024
This four to six stage enduro race is a Cascadia Dirt Cup bonus race and is held on Galbraith Mountain for two full days. In traditional format, the downhills are timed and the mandatory uphills are un-timed. Competitors can expect a race course that is more technical than a traditional cross-country course, with a healthy dose of climbing thrown in. The race is broken into multiple categories between Saturday and Sunday.
Pump Track Race
July 12, 2024
Racers compete head-to-head on a dirt track built with rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden by "pumping" the bike instead of pedaling. The two-day pump track race along Granary Ave. is the perfect, spectator-friendly place to watch with a cold beverage in hand.
Jump & Cornering Clinics
Learn the fundamentals of jumping and cornering at the Waterfront Pump Track and Galbraith Mountain’s progressive jump line. Start small and work up to the bigger lines with a clinic guided by some of the area’s best coaches. Whether you're just starting to take flight, or have the desire to hone your existing skills, these all-ages clinics provide a stage for progression.
