There is always something happening behind the scenes at the Challenger MTB Race and have we got some news for you. Remember this is a newly redesigned course including nearly 2 miles of unseen trails, a brand new 1/2 mile Prologue to thin out the pack, more WIDE passing areas, a heckle pit, and plenty of course arrows providing ample notice on the trail. This course is FAST, FUN, and has Great FLOW.
