Austin Rattler MTB

November 4, 2023

 

Saddle up for a Texas mountain biking favorite at the Austin Rattler MTB. The event takes place in the Texas hill country at Reveille Peak Ranch, a 1,300-acre mecca of amazing trails, about 1 hour west of Austin.  This top endurance mountain bike race is part of the Leadville Race Series and is organized by LifeTime Events.  The course is a 20-mile loop covering a mix of single-track and fast-fire roads.  Rocks and technical sections keep things interesting, and short, punchy climbs add up to 2,000 feet of elevation gain for the loop.  Riders can choose between a single 20-mile lap, a 2-lap 40-mile double, or a 60-mile triple.   The course starts on the main ranch road for the first 4 miles, allowing riders to sort themselves out before hitting the trails. For those partaking in the double or triple, there is some course deviation to extend the main route, but with similar terrain.

The Austin Rattler is a Leadville Race Series event, a national collection of premier MTB and Trail Running events.  Courses are carefully selected to mix route quality, challenge, and scenic beauty.  Participation is open to anyone. However, the longest and most challenging routes tend to attract the strongest enthusiasts, amateurs, and even some professionals.  The longest route in each event is a qualification for the series culminating in Leadville 100 MTB and Leadville 100 Trail held in August each year in Leadville, Colorado.  Both are truly iconic events representing the pinnacle of athletic challenge and achievement for finishers.

The other top-flight events in the Leadville Race Series for mountain biking (all the highest lengths in each are Leadville 100 qualifiers) that are worth a check-out are:

The Austin Rattler Trail run takes place simultaneously with the MTB event creating a great festival atmosphere. As with all Leadville Race Series events, you’ll have the opportunity to celebrate your finish in local style with live music, BBQ, and beer at the lakeside post-race party.

The Austin Rattler is organized by Life Time Events, which owns and operates some of the highest-regarded road riding, trail running, mountain biking, and gravel races worldwide.  Other Life Time Events include Unbound Gravel (formerly Dirty Kanza), Sea Otter Classic, Crusher in the Tushar, Big Sugar Gravel, and many more.
