MTB Gran Fondo and Grizzly 100 Races
For the past six years, mountain bike competitions have energized and inspired Big Bear Lake, California and in 2019 the races are back bringing more thrills and competitors than ever before. On September 28th both the MTB Gran Fondo and Grizzly 100 races will be in full swing as participants make their way from near and far to test out their skills against nature and their fierce competitors. The events are hosted by both Open Air Big Bear and Bear Valley Bikes, both of which are passionately committed to the world of outdoor sports and adventure.
Participants looking for the ultimate experience in endurance mountain bike racing will want to find a spot in the Grizzly 100. The rugged terrain of the San Bernardino Mountains provides the perfect challenge for professional mountain bike riders from all over the country and globe to try out their skills on one of the most demanding courses Southern California has to offer up.
