Palos Meltdown Mountain Bike Race

Event Description:

7th Annual Palos Meltdown Hosts 2013 Midwest Regional XC Championships! Race Day July 21st

The Palos Meltdown is Chicagoland’s premier mountain bike event. With racing for all ages and abilities this event draws riders from all over the region. In it’s fifth consecutive year, the Meltdown is held as a fundraiser for CAMBr to help build and maintain mountain bike trails in Chicagoland.

The race is held on Palos Forest Preserve’s extensive singletrack trail system just half an hour outside of Chicago. The trails are flowy, fun and built with all levels of rider in mind.
The event strives to keep a fun family atmosphere while providing a both challenging and fun race experience for first timers to the seasoned elite athlete. For 2013 we have changes planned to help further raise the level of fun and racing excitement!

This event requires many volunteers to make it happen. We need help in everything from Course Marshaling to registration to parking and traffic control. As well as help setting up the course the day before.

Thanks in advance for lending a hand and helping make the Meltdown a success.
