What is the "Burnt Bike Challenge (BBC) 30"?

For the past few years we have added a cross-country "taste-tester" for mountain bikers with a "discriminating palette." 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) on Pigasus. Guaranteed to satisfy!

What is "Dante's Enduro"

The Enduro is the racer's complement to the more family friendly Wheelay and consists of squeezing as many laps of the 10 km loop as you can before your legs and lungs scream "No mas" or 3 o'clock, whichever comes first. Last year's winning total was a lot. The gauntlet is down.

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!

Awards & Prizes to follow

Current BLMBA members are eligible for a $10 discount on their registration.

Friday evening kids events are $20 for any combination or all three races.

Saturday and Sunday events are $45 for a single race, $65 for two or more races.

If you are only racing Wilbur's Wheelay and no other races, the fee is $20.
