The Sisters Stampede is an XC mountain bike race occurring each memorial weekend on Sunday. It was spawned from the inception of a new, revised network of trails in the Sisters, Oregon area called the Peterson Ridge trail. The trails were built by the Sisters Trail Alliance, who are passionate about making this beautiful area accessible to cyclists, runners, and hikers. COTA (Central Oregon Trail Alliance) also plays a big part in the area helping to develop trails for mountain bikers made by mountain bikers. This thrilling race course features stunning views of the Three Sisters Mountains, and rolling singletrack scattered with Central Oregon lava rock. This course is mainly singletrack which will test riders’ strength and stamina. A very unique start/finish will be located just steps away from Three Creeks Brewing which will host the after-race party. In addition Blazin Saddles in Sisters will be hosting the annual block party and packet pickup. $1000 in cash prizes for the top three men and women – either elite or expert. There is something for everyone with 26 different race categories, and a party at the finish line!
