Save the Date: The GRIND

September 1 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 pm

Race the GRIND (Giants Ridge Iron -n-Dirt race), is a new, Labor Day weekend off-road cycling event at Giants Ridge that takes place on the rugged terrain of the Superior National Forest.

Both the long (35-40 miles) and short (15-20 miles) mountain bike race courses utilize the most scenic and challenging terrain in Minnesota’s Iron Range.  Expect tough climbs, fast descents, varied terrain with rocks, roots, creeks, & plenty of passing opportunities.  This race will test your skills as you wind through cross country trails, ski runs, snowmobile trails, and rugged mining roads.  Whether you’re a first timer, a weekend warrior, or a pro racer, you can count on having an amazing experience.

Cyclocross race under the lights is a 30 or 45 minute race Saturday evening.  The course will be incorporating the ski runs, double track, and whatever else we happen to find on the resort. There will be a mix of obstacles and trail set-ups to ensure no one bike has any advantage over other.  Any type of bicycle is welcome, but a MTB or CX bike will do best.  This is a great race to try the sport as a beginner or an early pre season race for the upcoming season.

Save the date and check back for registration information.
