Saturday, April 28th marks the 20th running of the Lemurian, and the third year at Whiskeytown. I could be wrong, but I think that makes Lemurian the longest running mtn bike race in the country. The Lemurian is a tough race from both physical and technical skills standpoints. Like the Downievill Classic, fitness alone won't win this race. Superior bike handling skills are required to negotiate the many rock gardens, chutes and drops.

If you haven't heard about the Lemurian and are curious, follow the links below for writeups of last year's race.

25 Years - Yikes!!

I think the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, in its 25th year, might have you beat.

Check out http://www.cheqfattire.com/ for more information.

But still, 20 years is pretty long.
That would mean the race started in 1981. I hope the same guy hasn't been race director all these years!
