About the event

The GlenVegas Gambler is at Lake Glendale Recreation Area. You can expect flow, chunky rocks and roots, lung and leg burning climbs and some of the fastest downhills in all of the Shawnee! These trails have been hand tuned and are maintained by members of the Shawnee Mountain Bike Association and other volunteers. These are the first trails to be designated for MTB use in the Shawnee National Forest and are some of the best riding we have in our area.. All proceeds from this race will support future trail building and maintenance by the Shawnee Mountain Bike Association. 

Registration opens March 1st!

Racing will start at 10AM on Saturday, April 29th with the Experts starting their 3 laps. 15 minutes later at 10:15AM the Sport/2 lap race will start and at 10:30AM the Beginner and Youth race will start. Finishing up with the kids class at 10:45. Registration and check-in will open at 8AM.

The course will be 8 miles per lap for adults and youth, and 3 miles for kids. The course will be taped and spray painted for fun and fast racing, helping even first time riders on these trails easily fly through the woods.

When the racers are finished, there will be a fun podium ceremony for the winners followed by lunch, a post race meal with ice cold drinks . Approximately 30 minutes after a full podium we will recognize the top three male and female riders in each category.
