REVIEW RACE DETAILS

New for this year is a new mapping tool for each of our races. Here's the Austin Trail map and amenities in the community. The new mapping system, a product called atlas3D, was developed by concept3D, a leader in location based software and 3D services and with offices here in Minneapolis MN. Check them out at www.atlas3D.com!

Take a look at the team lineup for this year. MN League

We look forward to seeing all the new faces and the familiar faces back for another season of fun...and mountain bike racing.
