Detroit Mountain Recreation Area has been excited to be chosen to host the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series for a number of years- The race course will consist of a mix of old, new and the future of what mountain biking in the Midwest is becoming, mixing a variety of professionally built singletrack, along with leg burning switchback climbs that lead to flowy fast descents mixing in our gravity trails and teasers of our custom built wood features to provide
a unique race course to test all levels and abilities of riders.
