Dog River

Super D


MAY 26th, 2024

Back for another year of racingA Legendary Race,

On a Legendary Trail

Line up to go down in the history books as a participant of the Dog river Super D. A race that dates back to the early 2000s and has evolved from an abbreviated DH race to a top-to-bottom 'Super D' style race. Featuring a impressively long race run with rippin' sections of singletrack and a beast of a climb to conquer in the middle. It's a race you won't forget.

There's one thing that has stayed the same after all these years of racing; this one has never really been about how fast you are, or being top dog, it's all about having fun in the woods with friends and other riders.

Race day is May 26th! Let's go racing!

I'm Here To Register

Jump to registration via OBRA's (Oregon Bicycle Racing Association) website. There is a 75 rider cap on this year's race so register ASAP and tell a friend!

Please note! E-bikes are not permitted on the 44-trails network and thus, e-bikes are not allowed to be raced at the Dog River Super D. Gotta race this one with the power of your own two legs folks!



The Course

Dog River Trail

We'll just go ahead and say there's no substitute for riding the actual trail, which we encourage you to do so once things thaw out closer to race day. We'll be doing some work on the trail prior to race day to remove any hazards, downed trees from winter, and make sure it's ready to race!

Course Description: The trail begins with a ripping 1-mile section of downhill with sick linking corners, a few sneaky inside lines, and natural flow. There's good sight lines all throughout this section.

A marked, sharp right signals the gradual 1-mile climb where most of the race's climbing is conquered. Pace yourself on this one!

Once you're through the climb, it's back to a mix of high speed descending with one technical rock chute (dubbed the 'The Hilary Step') and some technical switchbacks to keep you on your toes not long after.

The race ends on some traversing sections where in our opinion, a lot of the race can be won or lost (if you're racing to win.)

The course is marked and taped in two key places with no real opportunity for riders to cut the course (plus, course cutting isn’t cool)
