Venue Atmosphere

Atmosphere is laid-back…..this is Maine after all.  The race starts and finishes at the Outdoor Center, owned by the Town of Carrabassett Valley.  There is a great lodge with bike shop, magnificent mountain views overlooking the pond and lots of parking for camping and general post-race shenanigans.  Even if you aren’t a dyed-in-the-wool racer, but just enjoy bike culture and great riding, this is a can’t miss event.

During the past 10 years, approximately $700,000 has been spent building mountain bike trails in the Carrabassett Region.  The goal is to construct an iconic mountain bike trail network that is on everybody’s “must-ride” list.  To date, there is approximately 80 miles of riding for all abilities.  This includes miles of super flowy, machine-built singletrack and old-school style trails that have been carved out with hand tools and sweat.  The Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge (CBCC) is your chance to experience some of this outstanding riding in a true point-to-point style race through the western mountains of Maine!  Profits from the race go towards the construction and maintenance of new trails.

Course Map

This is a true point-to-point course, no laps here!! Approximately half the riding will be on sweet singletrack, with the remainder of the course being roughly 25% double track and 25% gravel. The total course distance is 100 kilometers (62 miles) with well over 5,000 feet of climbing. Don’t burn all your matches at once as you will find some of the most epic climbing near the end!
