This is the 3rd year for the Summerset Shootout and each year the trails keep getting better and better! Come race this weekend!

On Saturday, Sept. 21st, 2013 the Iowa Mountain Bike Championship Series pulls into Banner State Park for the third running of the Summerset Shootout. Back in the 1930's, the state park was home to one of Iowa's largest strip mines. Over the past five years, the Central Iowa Trails Association in cooperation with the Iowa DNR has transformed the abandoned strip mine into over five miles of narrow tread, tight and twisty single track. On race day, the expert category will toe the line for the hole shot promptly at high noon followed by the comp, category 2 and single speed classes. The beginner races kick off earlier in the morning.

Important Details All Category 1 racers must present an annual USA cycling license at registration on race day. The single day USA Cycling racing license will be waived for all other race categories.

Classes may be combined and races by be shortened if conditions warrant.

Fat Tire TT - tires need to be 3.6" or wider, race day registration only.

Registration Online registration is available until 12PM Sept. 19'th. On site registration opens at 9:30AM and closes 30 minutes prior to each race.
