The Sawtooth Mountain Challenge – CANCELED

October 12 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Due to wet conditions, we have decided to cancel the Sawtooth Challenge this year to avoid further damage to our trails. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this causes and we will be issuing refunds to everyone who signed up.

We’re tentatively looking at hosting the Sawtooth Challenge in August of 2020, with the hopes that we will have dryer conditions and warmer temps for the race. If you’re looking for another race to train for in the meantime, we would highly recommend the Norpine Fat Bike Classic in January. Learn more here: https://www.facebook.com/norpinefatbikeclassic/

As an alternative to the Sawtooth Challenge this year, we will be hosting a Bike Party this Friday night, October 11, starting at 5:30pm at Voyageur Brewing in Grand Marais. All are welcome to attend. There will be:

  • Free Beer Tokens
  • Free Snacks
  • A Presentation on our new trail and plans for the future

Feel free to reach out to info@superiorcycling.org with any questions, otherwise we hope to see you Friday night for free beer and bike camaraderie!


Hosted every fall at Pincushion Mountain in Grand Marais, the Sawtooth Mountain Challenge is the North Shore’s first mountain bike race. It has been run for over 25 years and has taken different shapes, but it now functions as the main fundraiser for the Superior Cycling Association’s trail maintenance fund.

Choose between 3 adult singletrack races – 8, 15, or 22 miles – and/or sign your kids up for the .25 mile or 1 mile race.

Register Now!

Friday, October 12:

Saturday, October 13:

All races will take place at Pincushion Mountain in Grand Marais

Please note that the schedule is subject to change per weather.
