About the Location: The BLACK BEAR trails are loaded with steep and technical single track trails. The types of trails on which mountain bikers dream of riding and quiver at the thought of wrecking. In other words, this is a hardcore mountain bike race (some have even called it the scariest mountain bike race in the world). This event offers several course lengths for your riding pleasure. Not everyone is expected to ride the toughest parts of the trail, so don't fret!
