Jack Lake Crazy Eights Mountain Bike Race Set for June 5

Whether solo or flying with friends, you’ll find the Jack Lake Mountain Bike Trails to be an awesome ride during the Jack Lake Crazy Eight Mountain Bike Race on Saturday, June 5.

The annual race is part of the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series (wemseries.com). The Jack Lake Mountain Bike Trails are located inside Jack Lake Campground at Veterans Memorial Park in Langlade County.

Past participants have made the event a weekend-long gathering. The organizers will again have a group campsite reserved. There is swimming in beautiful Jack Lake just a short walk from the race pit area, a disc golf course, and a shower facility.

The racecourse is 8.4 miles long, and 96 percent is singletrack on fast, flowing trails. The trails are not overly technical, but definitely aerobic. A lap will be under an hour. Start times are as follows: Long Race (10 hours); 9 a.m. start– solo, duo, open team. Mid Race (6 hours): 11 a.m. start – solo, duo. Short Race (3 hours): 1 p.m. start – solo, duo, junior.

Directions: Take Hwy. 45 north of Antigo approximately 15 miles to Hwy. J. Go east on J about 3 miles to the park.
