Miles of DisComfort MTB Marathon

Miles of DisComfort Marathon

JANUARY 29, 2022

Think you got the legs for this one? Endurance is the name of the game as participants compete to finish two full laps of Flat Rock Ranch (Upper and Lower loops x2) for some sweet singletrack goodness. If that seems like too much, we also have half-distance categories as well. This is the final race of the 2022 Hill Country Bicycle Works Texas Mountain Bike Marathon State Championship Series.
