Distance - Each lap is 5.8 miles

IMBCS heads into the end of summer/beginning of fall with a visit back to a Central Iowa favorite venue built by CITA at Summerset State Park. IMBCS #10 will be the Summerset Shootout hosted again by Rick Blackford (race director), and the Rasmussen Bike Shop MTB Race Team. The race takes place on Saturday, September 12th at the Summerset State Park just outside of Indianola, Iowa.

Back in the1930's, the State Park was home to one of Iowa's largest strip mines. Over the past 5+ years, CITA - in cooperation with the Iowa DNR - has transformed the abandoned strip mine into a 5.8 mile loop of narrow tread, tight and twisty, delicious singletrack. A lot of trail work has been done this year to keep the venue in shape and repair damage from two bouts of flooding that occurred during 2015. Suffice it to say, it will be ready for racing on September 12th.

New Trail Run Race: IMBCS will feature several venues this year that also include an early morning Trail Run Race. Summerset Shootout is one of those events for 2015.


The route will include the use of all sections at Banner Pits - Coal Miner's Daughter, NewEd Beach, Missing LInk, Corner Pocket, Extra Credit, and Riverside. Lap counts and various categories will be routed accordingly.
