Tatanka Festival rolls through Sturgis


News Staff - July 9, 2018

STURGIS, S.D. - Two-wheeled vehicles invated Sturgis this past weekend -- but it wasn't the motorized variety. Rather, it was pedal power.

The annual Tatanka Festival brought in hundreds of mountain bikers to Sturgis and the Northern Hills.

With 15 to 90-mile races, a mix of beginner and experienced riders were in Sturgis for the 7th annual event.

Tatanka Festival Executive Director Samual Greer says, "we're a part of what's called the National Ultra Edurance Race Series and so our 90 mile course and out 40 mile course are series races and a lot of riders are here from across the country scoring series points."

Greer says one thing out of town riders have realized is just how special the area is.

"We've had a lot of riders  come and race the race in year's past and then later that year or the following year, take a week vacation and spend it here riding the trails."

Greer says all the money raised at the event go back to trail mainetenance throughout the Black Hills.
