This year’s race was sponsored by The Trailhead in Missoula.  We would not have managed without their help.  Thank you.

Additional support was provided by Valley Bicycles and Ski in Hamilton.

Race Bibs were provided by the Missoula Nordic Ski Club.

Trail grooming was performed by the Como Trails Club and Bitterroot Cross-Country Ski Club.  Great job, guys.  The course was perfect and the snow fast!

Tony Neaves of the Como Trails Club was the race director and did all the time-consuming work required to put on the race.

Current plans are to make this race, The Continental Divide Classic, and annual event.   Without the help of each of the above businesses, organizations, and a host of volunteers, such events are not possible.  Give them your thanks.
