Join us for this day of mountain biking, camaraderie, chilling with your teammates in the pop-up tent city, cooking out, maybe getting muddy, and definitely having a great time on some of the best trails in Virginia. It's fast and smooth and really, really fun out there at Shenandoah River State Park! Test your endurance by taking on the 6- or 12-hour mountain bike course, as a solo, or on a 2 or 3-person team.


We'll be doing (really good) prizes (warning: this gets pretty competitive!) and music changes per crowd request every hour. We'll have the grill going with burgers and dogs. The river is handy if you need to cool off, and we'll have a firepit going when your legs need a break. It's a good time, y'all.

 

Included:

  • A great course through Shenandoah River State Park and along the South Fork of the Shenandoah River

  • Chip timing and real-time lap results

  • Live tracking so you can see where your team mate (or competition) is on the course.

  • Great swag

  • Prizes for top three winners in each division

  • An awesome time in a beautiful place with family and friends

12-hour consolidation

Unfortunately, with the number of deferrals and cancellation caused by the rain delay, as of today we only have 16 riders in the 12-hour event. Because of the small number of riders remaining in this category, we have decided to cancel the 12-hour and move the entries to the 6-hour.  If you had signed up for the 12-hour, we will refund a portion of your entry fee to make it commiserate with the 6-hour rate.  If you decide that you do not want to do the 6-hour, we will provide a full refund. If you want to change your team makeup, please let me know and I will make that adjustment. We will be increasing the depth of awards in the 6-hour event.

Mountain Bike

The single track at Shenandoah River State Park will have you smiling all day long (and night if you do the 12-hour course). Each loop will be approximately 8 miles and will contain a mixture of two-track gravel and single-track trail. The team and soloist completing the most laps in 6 or 12 hours wins. A tie in lap count is determined by the fastest combined lap time including pit stop and transition times. Racers will be able to start a new lap 45 minutes before the race duration cutoff. Teams race in a relay format and pass off to the next teammate in the transition area. There is no limit to how many times a teammate can do a lap before they hand off to another teammate. Team participants can go in any order. We will have plenty of space for you to set up your pit stop area for rest, recovery, and camaraderie.

Racers will be timed using MYLAPS Chip timing. You will also get a tracker that will track your location on the course every 60 seconds so your team mate(s) knows if they have time to hit the bathroom or grab another drink before you roll on through the transition.  For teams, your tracker will act as your batton.

 

All awards are based on chip times.
