The number of Novice/Cat 3 laps has been increased to 3 for a total distance of 9 miles. This lap doesn't contain many of the more difficult trails (see map below for route). The Open category has been dropped this year due to lack of participation. If you want more laps than Sport/Cat 2, sign up for the Comp class.
Preregister online through USA Cycling ($30) and save $5 from race day while making things much smoother for yourself and the registration volunteers. Online registration closes Friday July 8th at 10:00 PM CST. On site registration opens at 7:30 am and closes 30 minutes before each race begins.
Sunderbruch offers a familiar Midwest singletrack experience with a twist. In 2012 the trail system was expanded 1 mile to include large wooden berms, multiple bridges, and a "party deck" in the middle of the woods. The trails feature plenty of man made technical features, roots, leg burning climbs, and bone shaking downhills. The race course will be laid out and available for pre-riding late Saturday afternoon the day before the event.
