The lure of Michigan's Upper Peninsula continues to draw many Diablos.
The 25th Annual Ore to Shore Mountain Bike Epic could be considered a "Midwest Monument",
combining amateurs and professionals in a downtown mass start.
After the roll out, racers were treated with a course that allowed ample passing, lakes, rivers, ponds and enough single track (mostly towards the end) to challenge all facets of mountain biking XC racing.

Just like last year, the prior day's rain made the course slick, muddy, and puddly.
Especially notable performance by Brian Hansen with a 1st place in his category.
