Volvo Michaux Endurance Series


Get those calendars out and mark down these dates down NOW!


Michaux Maximus – May 6
Curse of Dark Hollow – July 15
Terror of Teaberry – September 16

Michaux Maximus is the first stop in the 2018 Michaux Endurance Series.  Maximus is staged from the Piney Mountain parking lot on Pine Grove Furnace Road, due west of Pine Grove Furnace State Park.  This is the same general location as the old Iron Masters Challenge held from 1991-2000 and what locals cheekily refer to as Norchaux.  The 2018 edition of Maximus will provide riders with three challenging, fully supported XC loops of 10, 20, and 30 miles respectively.  Additionally, we will once again offer a Family Fun Loop. This 5 mile loop is designed to introduce young riders, families, and first time racers to the enjoyment and the challenge of riding in the Michaux State Forest.

It is no secret that Michaux has a certain mythical quality not often found on today’s mountain bike racing circuit.  These are true backwoods throwback events chock full of technical and physical challenges.  If you truly want to test your mountain biking abilities, this is the race series for you!
