Tree Shaker 12 Hr Mtb Race
The Tree Shaker 12 Hour MTB Challenge is this Saturday, October 21st! Don't miss out the most exciting event of the fall. We've had people all over the southeast contacting us about the event. Snail mail and online registration is now available at or Detailed info including maps, directions, schedules and accommodations is also posted on the event website.

The event will be held from 9AM to 9PM at Charlotte's oldest mountain bike facility, Renaissance Park. While Renaissance Park may not have a lot of challenging climbing, the trails at the park will create a unique demanding endurance test of the mind and body. We plan to have ten different categories at the event, including, solo male, female, and single speed, duo male, female and single speed, and three person male, female, coed, and masters.

The course will be a longer version of the 6.2 mile loop at the park, more than likely totaling around eight miles. We have the entire facility to ourselves, so we plan to use it. We have plenty of paved parking for everyone to set up the most elaborate of team tents and of course, places to stretch out your back. We will have both port-a-jons and indoor restrooms, bike wash station, neutral mechanical support, free food tent, beer gardens, and live music.

Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the top three finishers in each category. All team members will receive prizes and trophies. Prizes are being donated from our event sponsors, Heartwood Tree Service, BikeSource, SouthPark Cycles, Clif Bar, Giant, Specialized, Fox, SockGuy, Kona, Giordana, and Gary Fisher. We picked up a few new sponsors including SourceBurn and hopefully Pabst Blue Ribbon(still in the works).
