Oh Yeahhhhhhh...
The BLACK BEAR Mountain Bike Race is loaded with steep and technical single track trails. The types of trails on which mountain bikers dream of riding and quiver at the thought of wrecking. In other words, this is a hardcore mountain bike race (some have even called it the scariest mountain bike race in the world). This event offers several course lengths for your riding pleasure.

Come race on Sunday, September 25 at Kanawha State Forest in Charleston, WV. The race starts at 11:00 AM. There will be a beginner/novice course again this year. All riders are encouraged to race. Free T-Shirts go to the first 100 riders registered.

Fee is $30 for WVMBA members and $35 for non-members. Registration closes 30 minutes before the race! Food provided for racers and PAID guests.

Race Volunteers are Needed! Please contact the race promoter,
