The Lemurian mountain bike race is a mass start down a narrow two-lane paved road for approximately 1 mile. Riders then ascend up a gravel road before climbing an even steeper gravel road to where they top out onto Monarch Mountain (approximately 1300 feet from the start). The second biggest climb is approximately 1800 feet over 2-3 miles. The technical rocky and drop off sections on steep trails are throughout the courses and on the long descents, including the last 4 miles of the course, which is the downhill portion of the Short course.
