McDowell Mountain Regional Park is arguably the home XC race course for many AZ mountain bike events. The course was home to the Cactus Cup back in the early 90′s and features classic desert riding with short climbs, tight turns, and cactus galore. This course will challenge you and leave you smiling, so long as you stay out of the cactus. Bring along the crew, there is a sweet new pump track for everyone to enjoy.
