    Race Course

    Sunderbruch offers a familiar Midwest singletrack experience with a twist. New for 2017 are the newly improved and reconstructed wood berms on the Jubilee trail. Trails feature plenty of man made technical features, roots, leg burning climbs, and bone shaking downhills. The race course will be marked out and available for pre-riding late Saturday afternoon the day before the event.

    Course Maps

    This years course will be similar to years past. The course will be run in a counter-clockwise direction.
