Maybury Time Trial, Aug 16th 2014

The Motor City Mountain Biking Association is pleased to announce the 9th annual Maybury Time Trial, brought to you by the good folks at Trail's Edge Cyclery.

Once again, this year features a fun course, and includes a reverse direction loop of the mountain bike trail and large sections of singletrack that are normally off limits to biking! A mix of fast open sprints and tight technical singletrack, this is a race that rewards both cardio and bike handling skills. It's you against the clock, with minimal passing and no excuses!

There will be cash awards and awesome swag as usual. Timing by Newton's Race Services.

All proceeds from this race benefit the Motor City Mountain Biking Association, an IMBA chapter, and are used to help fund our local trail building and volunteer activities.

Tree Farm Relay July 26th

People keep showing up, so we keep putting it on!!


Get ready for the 9th Annual Tree Farm Relay Event at Lakeshore Park in Novi, presented by the MCMBA and Team Tree Farm. This is the same format you have all grown to love… a unique 4-person team relay race! The course features lots of hills, passing zones and fun! This is a perfect race for the beginner looking to see what team / endurance racing is all about and for experienced racers looking to test their skills against rival teams. If you want to try an endurance race, but aren’t ready for the distance, this is the perfect event for you to see what the team racing concept is all about.

We changed the start of the Sport class last year to ease up congestion, and it worked great so we’ll do it again. Plus, we are officially changing the “Other” category into a Costume category. It will be the same distance as all Sport classes, but a time bonus will be rewarded for the best costumes. You don’t have to finish first to get first place!!!
