EPIC 8 HOUR

- SATURDAY, MAY 9 -

THE COURSE

Averaging 10 km per lap, Mansfield's Epic 8 course is loaded with fast singletrack, interspersed doubletrack for passing and the odd climb to separate the pack. Fast riders can expect to come in at under 30 minutes, while the average rider should expect lap times of about 40-50 minutes. The course is enjoyable for all including first-timers to mountain bike events.
