Lumberjack 100 June 18, 2011

Leaders head for the hills in the 2009 Lumberjack 100.

The 100-mile epic at Big M is this weekend. Here’s a brief bit from the Lumberjack 100 website:

Michigan’s first 100-mile mountain bike race! The Lumberjack 100 will once again utilize a 33-mile loop through Michigan’s beautiful Manistee National Forest and 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 percent of the 33-mile, 3-lap race is comprised of this single track that will eventually push racers over 9,000 feet of total elevation gain.
