Come join the Cow Town Cycling Team and the Ladydudes on June 10th, 2018 as we present The Meltdown Mountain Bike Challenge.

Please support our local sponsors.  Without them our events would not be possible.

The WYCO trail system is known locally as "Singletrack Heaven".  Home to some of the best designed and maintained trails in the Midwest and it is easy to see why the 25+ miles (and growing) trails out at Wyandotte County Lake have earned that name.

SINGLE SPEED class added!!!!

The Meltdown races will feature events for all ages and abilities including junior classes starting as young as 10 all the way up to 60+ Masters classes and 50+ Female classes.   Never participated in a mountain bike race?  We have a class for you - Cat 3 (Beginner).  Long distance is your thing?  We have a class for you - 3 hour Marathon. Only have one gear?  Single Speed is your class.

How do I register?  

Registration is easy - Visit: USA Cycling - Meltdown MTB

Remember this event is protected by the Event Cancellation Refund Protection Program.  What does this mean?  If we cancel the event due to rain (muddy trails) you get a refund.  Now you have no excuses not to sign up.

You must have a USA Cycling license or purchase a one-day license $10.00.  (Note: USA Cycling is currently having a rebate program where $5.00 from each one-day license will be paid to the hosting club. All rebated funds will be donated to the Urban Trails Co for use at Wyco)  You will have to create an account if you do not already have one with USA Cycling.  This is very easy to do.  The one-day license will be added automatically when you "checkout" if you do not already have a license.
