MAY 19, 2020
Our scheduled event is just a little over three months away. We have no way of knowing what the next three months will bring. We remain very, very hopeful that we can hold the Biggie.
We have a duty to keep our Big Sky Community safe. We must consider our residents, volunteers, support staff, search and rescue, first-responders and of course – you!
If we are able to hold the Biggie, there will be some major adjustments to the event. This could mean anything from a staggered start, self-supported aid-stations using drop-bags, required buffs/masks, and many other accommodations. We may even need to change the course, to contain our footprint in Big Sky and manage precautions more easily.
The amazing people behind the Big Sky Biggie are brainstorming creative ideas for how we can still provide a fun and challenging mountain bike race for you, without causing harm.
We want to host you. We want to see you suffer and smile on two wheels! But we want to make sure we do it in a way that is safe and smart. We request that you respect our decisions, trusting that we have put a tremendous amount of thought into them.
We will continue to update you as we confirm plans.

THE PURPOSE BEHIND THE BIGGIE
Our primary goal is to encourage riders (of all levels) to get out on the trail and have a successful day. How a rider measures that success is going to vary; whether it’s to place on the podium in their category, just finish the distance with enough steam to celebrate, or somewhere in between.
Our secondary goal is to raise funds that will go back to our local trails for protection, maintenance and growth – after covering our expenses, of course. Proceeds will be donated to the Big Sky Community Organization, our primary partner and trails steward.
