    Race Course

    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.

    Course Maps

    This years course will be the same as last year. The course will be run in a counter-clockwise direction.

    Kids Race

    A kids race will be held around 12:30. The course will be a short loop of nontechnical trail and grass field near the trailhead area. All kids 9 and under are encouraged to participate. There are no restrictions on bike type and although registration is required participation is free.


    This event is dependent on trail conditions and may be delayed/cancelled with short notice in the event of heavy rain prior or during the race. In the event of cancellation, the rain date is scheduled for Sunday July 24th with all times remaining the same.


    It takes a small army of people working behind the scenes to make sure this event runs smoothly. If you would like to help out, post up in the Thrill Ride - Call for Volunteers thread on the forums or stop by the day of the event to sign up at the registration tent.
