Hey guys - anybody interested in doing this. Andy sent me the info and I'm willing to give it a go & have blocked of the date on my schedule.
Founders Brewing Company presents the Lumberjack 100 and the Michigan Ultra Single Speed Championship. Michigan’s only 100-mile mountain bike race! The Lumberjack 100 will once again utilize Michigan’s beautiful Manistee National Forest, with a 25-mile loop snaking through the Big-M Ski Area. The Michigan style single track; composed mostly of hard pack trail, occasional sandy sections, and fast rolling terrain offers twists and turns that demand constant power, and total concentration as the trails quickly turn to nothing more than green blurs of forest. (If you’re expecting easy, fire-road coasting, look elsewhere!) Ninety nine percent of the 25-mile, 4-lap race is comprised of this single track that will eventually push racers over 13,000 feet of total elevation gain.
From the pro/elite racers, to those that will find victory in just surviving a race like the Founders Lumberjack 100, the post-race party has also made this a must-be-there event for both racers and spectators alike. In addition to enjoying the fine brews of signature sponsor Founders Brewery; there will also be a post-race raffle loaded with a variety of prizes. Including a Cannondale Rush frameset, Velocity wheelset, Thomson Elite seat posts and stems, and enough other bike schwag that practically no racer goes home empty handed.
The Founders Lumberjack 100 is proud to be a stop on the National Ultra-Endurance Mountain Bike 100 Series.
$125 entry fee includes: the race, aid station, event t-shirt, pint glass, post-race meal and Founders Ale!
Early Registration: $125.00
After May 5th: $150.00
No refund of any kind will be allowed.
