What is "Dante's Inferno"?
This is a cross-country endurance race 80 km in length. The length of the race has increased by 10 km per year, culminating in a 100 km race in 2016. The course is 10 km in length, with a check-in at the Kager Lake parking lot. Riders are required to dismount, have their punch-card updated, and ride on! For most riders, the race will last 4-7 hours to complete the full 80 km. Riders can complete one lap, multiple laps or try for all 8!
What is the "Burnt Bike Challenge (BBC)"?
BLMBA is adding a cross-country "taste-tester" for mountain bikers with a "discriminating palette" this year. But be forewarned: the BBC is not for the faint of heart. This "ultimate 30 km loop" begins by climbing up Razorback, an 18 km all-mountain trail, before "rewarding" you with thrilling descents and even more climbs. Guaranteed to satisfy!
What is "Dante's Enduro"
For the truly masochistic, this event if for you! Combining the inferno loops and the BBC, you begin at 8:00 a.m. and do however many laps of the 10 km loop as you can before 11:00 a.m AND THEN race the BBC! Finish off any remaining laps to complete the full 80 km. Strangely, a mental health assessment is NOT necessary before registration!
What is the “WILBUR’S WHEELAY”?
This is a cross-country race, with an emphasis on fun! Teams of all ages are encouraged to participate. There is no limit to the number of team members that ride the 5 km race course. The winning team rides the most loops (in the shortest time) in the 3 hour time limit wins!
