After a two week break, the National Ultra Endurance Series continues on June 2 with the Mohican 100. Raced just outside of Loudonville, OH, the race is a staple of the NUE series as the series moves from the East Coast to the Midwest for the next two stops in the series.

At Syllamo’s Revenge, the previous stop in the series, the rocks and technical riding created a race full of carnage and flat tires as racers struggled to finish the course in the searing heat.

The course at the Mohican promises to give the riders a slight respite from the ultra technical riding they experienced at Syllamo’s — at least in terms of the number of rocks on the trail — but will surely test riders’ resolve with countless climbs and descents.

Still, no NUE race course is easy, and race organizers have ensured that the Mohican provides ample challenge right from the start line.

Racers will be competing for the prize of $1000 in both men and women’s open categories, along with comped entry for 2013, including two nights stay for up to nine at Mohican Cabins, valued at $700. Registration is available on Friday but same-day registration on Saturday is not an option.
