Ring Of Fire
Ring of Fire debuted in 2021 to rave reviews and is produced by Mudslinger Events, known in the Northwest for their full roster of premiere mountain biking, gravel, and a mix service events. The name “Ring of Fire” refers to the Cascade Mountains and the volcanoes which are part of the 25,000 mile volcanic region of the Pacific Ocean basin. The event takes place at Wanoga Snow Park in Bend Oregon and offers 100k and 40 miles of stunning single track. The 100k route comes with nearly 6,000 Ft of elevation gain spanning a stunning mostly single track route just West of Bend Oregon.
In 2022, Ring of Fire is also a stop on the National Ultra Endurance Series (NUE) Epic Series. The Epic Series is a world-class mountain bike endurance race series that is a calendar of 10+, 100-mile endurance races, bringing the best riders in the country to compete for the overall title. But of course, you can do these events all individually as you wish.
Mudslinger Events was formed by Michael Ripley, an enthusiastic mountain biker who grew up in Eugene, Oregon. The organization brings people together to explore the gorgeous outdoor areas of Oregon. Having been run since 1987, Mudslinger Events brings back a vintage atmosphere to Mountain Biking and cross country racing. They organize some of the best mountain bike and gravel race events in the entire United States all taking place in the Northwest. The full Oregon XC Series includes Mudslinger XC, Sisters Stampede, Oregon 24/12, High Cascades 100, and Ring of Fire.
Mudslinger also produces the The Oregon Triple Crown Series, a series of 5 premiere gravel and mixes surface events: Oregon Coast Gravel Epic, West Coast Gravel, Oregon Gran Fondo, Sasquatch Duro, and Takelma Gravel Grinder. People interesting in participating can register for each event separately or benefit from the OTC Series Pass that includes price discounts, bike accessories, and prizes associated with the timed-event awards.
