Video: The Miner's Revenge Mountain Bike Race
If you read my post yesterday about mountain biking on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, you probably saw my mention of a unique mountain bike race held there every year. It's called, the Miner's Revenge, and it takes place in and around the Adventure Mining Company on the Keweenaw Peninsula. What makes this race so special is that the course of the race runs not just around and over the mountain, but inside it as well. Racers must negotiate a narrow tunnel left over by the copper mines that once populated the area. It certainly adds a new twist to a race, and as you'll see in the video below, the tunnel makes for a unique environment. This is a race unlike any other, and only adds to the great riding in the U.P.
