2015 Volvo Michaux Endurance Series
Michaux Maximus – May 3rd
Curse of Dark Hollow – July 19th
Terror of Teaberry – September 27th
This year we will be changing the format of our series slightly. All loops will still be single lap but will be have 30, 20, 10 and now a 5 mile family fun loop. This goal of this is to hopefully bring in more youth…the future of our sport.The 30 mile winners receive a envelope stuffed with cash and the 20 and 10 mile winners get a pick from our MASSIVE prize table.
Michaux Maximus is the first race in the Volvo Michaux Endurance Series. This race is held in the same location as the famed Iron Masters races held in the 1990′s leaving from the Bendersville lot on Pine Grove Furnace Road. Michaux Maximus is your classic Michaux race, encompassing 10, 20 and 30 miles single loops that is a challenge for anyone. Maximus has everything from tight smooth single track to ATV trails with bone jarring rocks. If you truly want to test your mountain biking abilities, this is the race for you!?
The Curse of Dark Hollow is the second stop in our race series. This race begins and finishes on Big Flat off of Shippensburg Road. This race started in 1996 and has continued to push the limits of mountain biking in the forest. Rich Winkelmann, of the race directors said, “These events aren’t about pomp and circumstance. This is a blood sport. Its really about the technical challenge that Michaux presents to the riders, which we feel is the very heart of mountain biking. The gnarlier and more mysterious, the better! Is there another way to do it?” This also has 10, 20 and 30 mile single courses.
The final race in our series is the Terror of Teaberry which debuted in 2000. The Teaberry parking lot is in South Mountain off of Coldspring Road. Jeremiah Bishop raced our course a few years ago and said that mile for mile, it was the hardest race he had done in the WORLD! The south side offers some of the most technical trails in the forest that we try to link together without any road sections. The fall season always provides such a beautiful course. This race also has 10, 20 and 30 mile single loop courses. This is the best part of the forest to ride!
