ARIZONA’S ORIGINAL MOUNTAIN BIKE STAGE RACE, THE RENOWNED SPECIALIZED CACTUS CUP

Mountain bike racing among the saguaros kicks off the season with events for the entire family. The Specialized Cactus Cup is a legendary weekend packed with warm weather and good vibes featuring fun that is as intense as the racing. Drop off the kids at ride camp to develop skills and have a blast while you race. Win a bunny hop contest, sip a tasty beverage (or both!) while taking in the cool gear and live music at the expo. Conveniently located an hour from Phoenix at McDowell Mountain Regional Park, you can camp, glamp, or grab a hotel. If all of that doesn’t grab your attention, did we mention the prize purse?
