The Wagner Subaru MVMBA Race Series

MVMBA’s world-famous race series returns for 2019! Our weeknight FastLaps races are in June, July and August, capped by the series finale at the MoMBA XC Classic in September. These seven races make up the MVMBA FastLaps Championship. We will also be holding the perennially popular John Bryan 6 Hour in August this year. Check out our Facebook page for all the latest updates.

The official race series rules are here. The FastLaps races are time trial events. Riders leave the start line separated by 20 seconds, racing against themselves, the trails, and the clock to see how fast they can complete 1 lap of the course.

**Save time and money by pre-registering for the races!**

The John Bryan 6 Hour

  • Saturday, August 3rd

Registration will open at 7:00am, race starts at 8:00.

The John Bryan 6 Hour is MVMBA’s signature endurance event. A mass start sends the whole pack of riders onto the two-track, jockeying for position before they enter JB’s sweet, twisty singletrack. Riders may compete solo, or in teams of two or three riders. Finish as many laps as you can before time, or your body, runs out!

The MoMBA XC Classic

  • Sunday, September 15th

Registration will open at 9:00am, first wave starts at 10:00.

MVMBA’s race season all comes down to this, the final race in the Championship series! Race 1, 2 or 3 laps (depending on your class) of MoMBA’s sweet singletrack, pitting yourself against some of the best riders in the region.

  1. Is there a race course map posted somewhere for the 6hr. I’m from northern ky not familiar with the trail system at jb thanks chris

    • Hi Megan!

      The Expert Women cover the full course at MoMBA. The courses change each week, but they average about 8-9 miles.

    • Hi Erika!

      We currently have 3 youth race categories. There is a High School class, and then Junior A and Junior B. Junior B is for brand new riders. Junior A is for kids with some mountain biking experience, who are comfortable being out on the trails, more or less on their own, for up to an hour.

  2. How much is the 6 hour endurance race and when does registration open?

    • Hi Quinn,
      in the past it has been $30. We don’t have an official date for the registration to open yet, but are working on it. When it opens we’ll know the official pricing for this year.
