I deeply regret that I can’t attend this race weekend this year, but last season the Laddies Loppet Mountain Bike Stage Race was one of my favorite events. Mapelag Resort and MNMBS do an excellent job holding the time trial, short track and cross country races. This course is on the USA Cycling National mountain bike calendar and has hosted a UCI race in the past. It will definitely test your fitness and technical skills and is totally worth the drive to Callaway, MN. Also, the payouts are sizeable and equal!
I should have mentioned something earlier, but if you’re looking for some good mountain biking this weekend, consider Laddies Loppet!
