2015 LSGS Details
The Lake Superior Gravity Series is a Mountain bike downhill (DH) and enduro series in the Lake Superior Basin. All events are organized by IMBA Chapters and local trail clubs to raise funds in direct support of more and better trails in the region. Register for each of the events individually and your points will automatically be tallied for the series (there is no series registration). Thanks to: GoPro, Fox MTB, Gravity Components, Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores - COGGS, The Copper Harbor Trails Club, SöKē, & NTN Singletrack! 
  

 

MTB enduro is a format which takes some inspiration from both car rally and motorbike enduro racing. It is a stage-race format where the winner is the rider who accumulates the lowest combined time from the various timed sections. The Lake Superior Gravity Series races each consist of three to six timed "special" stages which take place on technically demanding, generally descending terrain. These special stages are linked by predominantly ascending transfer stages. Although a rider's specific performance on the physically demanding transfer stages does not affect his or her result, the transfers are associated with an overall time cut-off. The enduro races are run on a mix of intermediate and expert mountain bike single track.
