The PAPAGO 6 Experience!

Start the 2019 mountain bike race season off right – PAPAGO 6 is the perfect early season race. January 5, 2019 marks the beginning of the dirt race season in Arizona.

A few event updates….

The course direction remains the same as in 2018 – map is posted. MANDATORY dismount in the tunnel – safety first.

The Papago Experience p/b VR7 returns – details are coming together, but expect similar hospitality (food, coffee service, mechanical support, etc), and fun, as the last couple of years! We are excited to partner with VR7 – the best clothing out there.


Junior categories are back. Safety remains a concern, but we believe in offering racing opportunities for Junior Duo teams. We will offer Junior Boys, Junior Girls and Junior Co-ed categories – must be ages 12-15.

Sponsors? Yep. HAMMER NUTRITION returns, and PIVOT CYCLES is on-board. Great to have both part of the event.

Blue Wasabi will be hosting race number pick-up on Friday evening from 5pm to 7pm. They will be offering special menu items to PAPAGO 6 racers.
