The Mohican MTB 100 is one of the best endurance mountain bike races and events in the United States and is part of the National Ultra Endurance Series (NUE). At Strambecco, we consider the Mohican MTB 100 to be one of the Best Mountain Bike Race Events in the Midwest. Taking place in Northeastern Ohio, the  riders of the headlining event will crisscross three counties along a single loop, climb 10,000 feet, and go toe to toe with the top pros on this legendary ultra-endurance loop. One participant shared, “This was my first Mohican 100k. It was amazing. I have completed several Ironman, dozens half Ironman and American TTT. Hands down the most mentally and physically thing I have ever done. The course came at you the whole time. I can’t wait to do it again.”
