Bear Bait 8

on casper mountain

You found your spirit animal. The Bear Bait 8, with more than 610 feet of elevation gain and loss over rugged terrain, isn’t for weak wills or soft glutes. The 2018 competition takes place on June 23 on Casper Mountain. Your legs will scream and your lungs will burn during this 8- or 4-hour endurance race over more than 7 miles of double and single track trails.

Your legs will scream and your lungs will burn

Whether you’re biking to conquer the mountain, the competition or yourself, the Bear Bait 8 has the right race and division with solo, 2- and 4-person teams. And because dirt is the new pink, we have women’s and men’s categories. Sign up today for one of Wyoming’s top mountain biking events, because on Casper Mountain, your chains will set you free.
