Mellow Johnny's Spring Classic - Texas
The Mellow Johnny’s Spring Classic Mountain Bike Race Weekend is May 29-30 at Juan Pelota Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas. Last year, in its infancy, the race attracted 700 entrants across all categories. It culminates in a Pro race that’s part of the Pro XC series.
 
Chequamegon 40 - Wisconsin
On Saturday of the event weekend, this 40 mile, mass start, point-to-point off-road bicycle event travels from downtown Hayward, WI, over the famed American Birkebeiner Ski Trail, forest roads, snowmobile trails and other wooded lanes to the finish line in Cable, WI. 1,700 participants will take part in this challenging fat tire marathon.


 

  

Breck Epic Stage Race - Colorado
Adventure racing. Extreme backcountry mountain biking. An expansive rider’s compound offering camping, medical support, massage, showers, organically-grown (& slaughtered – never fear, lovers of protein!) food from local farmers, mechanical support and killer coffee. The Breck Epic is a shared mountain bike slugfest that directly underwrites open space.
 
Laramie Enduro - Wyoming
Situated in the Laramie Range of Southeastern Wyoming, this course covers some of the best mountain bike trails in the region. The course is a fast and extremely fun loop, covering no ground twice. It includes virtually every kind of trail and surface a mountain biker is likely to encounter in the Rockies, from wildlife trails to single track to dirt roads. It is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds.
