Due to the early arrival of the monsoon season, we've had to cancel this event. The trails are simply too wet to ride without damage to trails, bikes, and people. Watch FB for a possible make-up date in the future.

Championship Point Series
The 11th Annual Maybury State Park Time Trial is Race #9 of the 2016 MMBA CPS series, brought to you by Trail's Edge and the MCMBA. See 2016 Champion Point Series page for more information.
The course this year includes some awesome raceday only singletrack. This will be Maybury as you've never experienced it! Total course length of approximately 9 miles. The mix of fast open sprints and tight, technical singletrack reward both cardio AND bike handling skills! Elite and Expert racers will do 2 laps while everyone else will do 1 lap.
Each racer has an individual start time and will be measured against the clock. The start times listed for these categories Are the intial start time for each Class. The actual time will be provided to pre-registered riders at registration. While day of ragisration riders will all be put to the back of their respective classes. Again this is an approximate time listed on the site. Please make sure you arrive 1/2 our prior to this estiamted time for registration and getting ready to burn up the course. Again - specific start times may not be available before race day. We will do our best to post them. there is a 30 second interval between racers. Awards Cash prizes for Expert and Elite racers, plus awards to the top three places in each category. Timing Timing provided by our friends at Race Services, with results available immediately on kiosks and on the web.
Online registration is available at https://www.bikereg.com/maybury-time-trial-cps--mcmba-benefit-race or register on race day.
Special course and kids only prizes! This is a fun non-competitive event for the younger kids. Usually about a 100 yard course with limited actual mountain biking. It is meant to be a fun event for the kiddies...ages 2 or 6 years old even.
Neutral tech support will be available to help deal with those last minute issues.
Usually hotdogs/burgers chips and drinks. Cooked by our friendly volunteers.
All proceeds befit the MCMBA and help support the trails that you love!

A resolution to declare July 2016 as Tree Farm Relay Month.
Whereas, the Motor City Mountain Biking Association and Team Tree Farm hosts a benefit race in July; and
Whereas, MCMBA mountain bike races are a vibrant affirmation and expression of Michigan?s finest traditions, operating as volunteer-based events and raising funding for developing and maintaining Michigan trails; and
Whereas, mountain bikers are some of the coolest people around; and
Whereas, we have it on the highest authority that July 30th is going to have perfect weather this year; and
Whereas, the excellent, professional firm of Newton Timing and Race Services has again been retained to provide RFID based timing services for the event; and
Whereas, some of the past costumes worn by Tree Farm Relay participants have been highly creative and memorialized in both facebook photos and in our nightmares; and
Whereas, we can?t wait to see what people come up with this year; and
Whereas, children will find fun and refreshments racing on the Sapling Loop; and
Whereas, mountain bikers support business by purchasing hops, grains, yeast, and bicycle parts in significant quantities; and
Whereas, the Relay racing format promotes a high level of competition as well as time for food, drink and social interaction during the day; and
Whereas, beautiful Lakeshore Park in Novi provides an excellent venue for this event, with interesting singletrack and fast passing zones, children play areas, a nice sandy beach, a cheerful, helpful park staff, rest rooms, and ample space for participant tents and staging areas; and
Whereas, there is a high probability of finding a tiki bar out on the race course; and
Whereas, in partial compensation for the cuts, scrapes, bruises, mosquito bites, poison ivy and a host of other less than desirable maladies resulting from sweat equity in May, June and early July trail maintenance activities, Team Tree Farm shall allow for a reasonable level of responsible debauchery during the Tree Farm Relay; and
Whereas, Motor City Mountain Biking Association members are vested in the future, health, and welfare of our trails as providing a diverse set of quality experiences to promote fitness and develop mountain biking skills of a broad range of riders; and
Whereas, mountain bike benefit races are one of the primary funding sources for the chapter; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Motor City Mountain Biking Association, an IMBA chapter, that the members of this body declare July 2016 as Tree FarmRelay Month in the state of Michigan. We recognize the contributions that the MCMBA, Team Tree Farm, and our volunteers have made to the communities and economy of this area.
The question being on the adoption of the resolution,
The resolution was adopted.
