Description

July 13, 2024 marks the resurgence of road racing in Montana with an epic one-day race in the heart of Big Sky Country. Open to all comers with something for everyone, this USAC-sanctioned race will be a spectacular day on the bike with stunning views, battles for state championship medals (for Montana residents), and a finish in downtown Philipsburg.

The 2024 Pintler Classic revives the opening stage of the Ecology Center Classic — the pro stage race that attracted national-level talent in the early 2000s — with a legendary course that screams Montana. Starting in Philipsburg, racers will roll along the foothills of the Pintler Mountains, tackle a challenging dirt sector on Rock Creek Road, and climb back up to sweeping views of the Anaconda Range before dropping back down into Philipsburg.
