Best MTB Races Midwest 2024

Still, routes often include steep, short climbs with a significant elevation gain over the entire event route.

If we had to pick the best of the Best MTB Races Midwest 2024, or those you’d classify as bucket list events, we’d recommend the Lutsen 99er, which is also a Leadville Race Series event and a qualifier for the famed Leadville 100.  The Checuamegon MTB Festival in September is a great fall event produced by Life Time Events.  Several National Ultra Endurance Series events, including the Mohican and Marji Gesick, are on our best list.
