Galbraith Gravity Spring Racing Series

March 18 - May 5

Welcome to the Galbraith Gravity Racing U18 race series at Galbraith Mountain! Our goal is a fun series of 6 Saturday races open to anyone U18 with the love of two wheels!  Race format is DH, you have to pedal up, so it is really a one stage Enduro 😉 – Courses will be both age and skill appropriate.  Course are posted…have the same start area several times, and the racers send SST twice…they can compare their times beginning and end of the season.

Please support our race sponsors! FANATIK, Troy Lee Designs, NW Conversions, EXT Racing Shocks, Sensus Grips, and Transition Bikes, March Northwest, Washington State Bicycle Racing Association (please join – they made this race possible!), and all of our great partners!

USA Cycling License is REQUIRED.  https://membership.usacycling.org/.   Parents that want to follow CAT 3 U10 and U8 racers are free to do so, but you must have a license or a purchase a day licence. Parent follows are not charged an entry fee, but must register to sign the waiver and purchase a day license if required.

Awards: Medals for the top three in each division will be handed out following the race.

We are looking for volunteers, we always need help.  The event is a bike race, we would appreacite if people can avoid parking. Please drop off or ride from home.  Parking TBD based on event location. Public lots are available on both the North and South side of Galbraith Mtn.   WMBC has great information on being a mountain bike ambassador and helping to keep other trail users happy – want to help with parking, donate to WMBC!  We reserve the right to move the event date for inclement weather/hazards to help keep the trails in shape.  We want to be good trail stewards.

We are so excited to offer this to the youth MTB riders in Bellingham! Bring a friend to ride with! And an adult to cheer you on!

We reccomend additional insurance, USA Cycling has a great option here:  https://usacycling.getspot.com/
