Welcome to the 2018 Challenger Mountain Bike Race sponsored by Ultra LED Pro. The race is part of a series of ten Cross Country races in the Mid-Atlantic Super Series (M.A.S.S.). Situated on the beautiful grounds of Camden County College in Gloucester TWP, New Jersey, the course is fast, fun, challenging, has great flow and has become an instant favorite. You'll enjoy the #1 Mountain Bike Riding destination in South Jersey (15th in the entire state of NJ according to SingleTracks.com). This is some of the sweetest singletrack New Jersey has to offer.
This race is vastly different from the other races in the series. Designed with a festival-like atmosphere, The Challenger is the ONLY race with a GIANT 10ft-tall by 16ft-wide video wall to show all the action and allowing you to interact by sending your pictures and videos to the display. We will show the race results, and a LIVE video feed including a First Person View (FPV) from one of the racers cameras on the course in real time.
History & Background
2017 was the inaugural year for The Challenger and we had 366 racers on a rainy day. If the weather is nice we are expecting well over 400.
