IMPORTANT RACE DAY NOTES

Thank you for registering for the 6th annual Central Maine Cycling Challenge/Titcomb Mountain Challenge.  This year marks a shift in this event.  After 5 years of busting butt and working tirelessly Matt Reynolds has stepped aside and handed the race off to the next generation.  We can't thank Matt enough for all he did for both the local community and for bringing this event to life.  In the last 5 years we've seen the event help to bring better trails and more awareness to our fantastic riding opportunities in this region.

This years race promises to be the best yet. Not only have we added new categories, but we have also joined EFTA and are part of the NECS Marathon Series AND XC series!  Please read all notes carefully when you register. 

 The new course layout, comprised of approx. 85% single track and 15% nordic trails, all ability levels will find it challenging and rewarding at the same time. New trails and new course design each year adds to the challenge. This year, the half lap,  will be located near the start/finish line allowing racers to refuel at the full lap and half lap mark. It will also allow relay racers to make an exchange at the half lap marker as well. 

Categories are will be based on rider ability and age groups. Race solo or as part of a relay team.
