Race 8 - Gamehaven Lakeside Grind

Welcome to the Gamehaven Lakeside Grind – the Minnesota Series newest race. This race is held at the Gamehaven Scout Reservation – a beautiful 265 acre camp and the Gamehaven Sports and Activities Park  – Rochester’s newest 460 acre regional park with a 42 acre lake. Gamehaven has been a popular site for Minnesota High School races the past 4 years. Trails are built and maintained by volunteer members of the Rochester Active Sports Club. New trails are being added each year.



This race course is new to the series, but not a new trail.  The Gamehaven trail has been hosting the NICA series for 3 years and is a fantastically maintained work of trail art in the south eastern part of our state.  Great singletrack, some good climbs and plenty of areas to pass the Gamehaven trail has something for everyone. Don't trust me on it checkout the Strava segments! The Sport-Expert climb will not fail to impress you. A great set of technical descending is also built into the course.  Click the links below for the race course maps.

Minnesota Mountain Bike Series Board
Is seeking new committee members.

  • Finances and taxes
  • Sponsorship / fund raising
  • Safety & course vetting

  • Two general volunteers for administrative tasks  
The driving force for the MNMTBS is to promote mountain bike racing and provide a sustainable structure for local races. The MNMTBS is a non-profit organization and run by volunteers. Each role is structured so that it is not an overwhelming amount of time commitment, and all of our members find it very rewarding.   It is important that we continue to provide racing opportunities for families long into the future and therefore we need to add volunteers to our ranks.  If you are excited about mountain biking and want to explore this opportunity please contact us by replying to this email.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
