This is the Rain Make Up Date
The 2015 IMBCS Series heads next to Boone, Iowa for IMBCS #3 on the quintessential Iowa Mountain Biking trails at Seven Oaks Recreation Area. You want climbs? You want screaming descents? You want switchbacks? You want to race on the hills of a ski area? You want tight and twisty? Come and get it.
This is some of the best Iowa has to offer for mountain biking. We thought we were going to lose the venue after years of the race being directed by Kyle Sedore, and Ron DeGeest who announced to us last year at this event it would be there last time to host it. IMBCS is proud to welcome Derek Brewer as the new race director to host this event, and keep the Seven Oaks venue alive and well for all of us to enjoy. Word is, some work has alrady been put in during 2014 to add berms, and clean up some things on this Central Iowa favorite venue.
Seven Oaks is a cross country mountain bike course laid out among the Seven Oaks skiing, and snow tubing hills. Much of the trail is on the back side of the ski slope twisting through the woods. You will breathtaking climbs, fast flowing flats, screaming descents, bridges, bermed corners, and technical switchbacks. There is something for everyone in the 7 miles of awesome singletrack that winds through the wooded hills, valleys, and crosses Coal Creek just west of Boone, and the Des Moines River.
Marathon Venue: IMBCS will feature several venues this year that include a 4 hour Marathon Category. Seven Oaks MTN Bike Race is our second venue to feature a Marathon for the 2015 Race Season. Endurance junkies unite!
