Schedule of Events
All times are listed in MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT TIME! Most of the course is in the MDT zone, however, we are right on the edge of the Central Daylight Time Zone so your phones & GPS units may jump back and forth. Please plan accordingly. We recommend setting your devices on permanent MDT zone to avoid any confusion. If you’re not already confused enough, Watford City operates on CDT zone, but for simplicity: ALL RACE TIMES ARE LISTED IN MDT!!!
This option is now available for riders coming into Watford City a couple of days early. A group of people will be heading out onto the Maah Daah Hey for a pre-race ride. The ride will meet at the MDH trail head at the CCC Campground.
