The Mt. Borah Epic is nothing short of its true definition, epic. 30 miles, point-to-point, and 100% of race profits donated to CAMBA (the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association), have led Mt. Borah to stage a race that pays tribute to the trails and offers a one-of-a-kind race experience found no where else but Northern Wisconsin. In 2013, the inaugural event raised over $7,500 for CAMBA as they continue to build their world-renowned trail system.
Skill, endurance and perseverance will be asked of each rider as they challenge the Epic this upcoming spring. Each section of the course holds its own key to success. Racers will traverse rocks, roots and navigate through pine groves, all while enjoying the epic single track that has inspired us to stage this race from the very beginning.
Join the Epic mailing list to keep track of race details and more information about the course.
Miles upon miles of pristine single track define the Mt. Borah Epic race course. The challenge will require riders to surf through smooth banked turns, navigate across bumpy rock gardens, and surge through pine groves as the sunlight breaks through the treetops. The course offers an experience difficult to replicate in most mountain bike races nationwide and will leave riders grinning from ear to ear upon finishing.
The 2013 race was won by Jason Sager of Odgen, UT (Pro Team Jamis) in a time of 2:21.14.
Some unique features include a 200-foot "log prime shortcut" and a section of trail CAMBA calls the "gravity cavity." All these qualities and more to prove the racecourse truly highlights CAMBA's supreme trail building expertise.
