Mountain Bike Race to be Held in Pierre


Due to Missouri River flooding this race was not held in 2012. So unless it rains heavily, LaFramboise Island Nature Area near Pierre will be the site of a mountain bike race on Saturday, June 1, 2013. The island offers approximately nine miles of trail, most of which will serve as the course for the race.

The approximate six-mile per lap race will follow a course on mostly flat terrain through a combination of twisting, tree-lined single-track trail, and through the wider double-track trails. Registration is set for 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. A racer’s meeting is scheduled at 10:15 with the race to follow at 10:30 a.m.

Helmets are mandatory and prizes will be awarded. The entry fee is $20.00.
