The Best of Both
The ultimate dual-discipline bike race
Ride, race or relay.
Sanctioned by OBRA (The Oregon Bike Racing Association), “The Best of Both” is a unique bicycle race/ride to be staged in the beautiful mountain town of Bend, Oregon. The event is the first of its kind to combine road cycling and mountain bike riding within one conclusive race distance, bringing a cross-section of competitive bike racers together for the first time to compete head-to-head.
The Best of Both is the most unique, one-day endurance cycling event in north America. The race challenges riders to complete a 62-mile mountainous road course, before transitioning to a mountain bike and racing over 23-miles of fast, technical and flowing single-track to the finish.
