The Ouachita Challenge is a mountain bike tour and race that takes place each spring in the Ouachita Mountains of Southwestern Arkansas. The Ouachita Challenge is the largest mountain bike event in Arkansas, and draws hundreds of participants from as far away as California to Georgia, Minnesota to Texas. The 500 available slots are so coveted that the race slots fill up in less than 24 hours from the time on-line registration opens.
There is a 60-mile race and an 80-mile race, as well as a 60-mile tour. You will encounter a little bit of everything on the course: Highway, Dirt Road, Single Track. Some of the trail has very steep climbs that will put the best of riders off their bike for a little hike-a-bike. There are creek crossings, rocky areas, some very fast sections and some areas that are very narrow.
