About Us:

In late 2003 the MTB-Life racing team was formed.  It actually came together as a way to promote two different websites, and give a group of seven riders a “team” identity.  The team focused primarily on Midwest downhill competitions.  They traveled to locations stretching from Quebec, Canada south to West Virginia both racing and riding downhill venues.  The team found many successes, but with changes in team members and personal lives, MTB-Life refocused for the 2007 season to a regional racing effort. 

The team is comprised of five talented riders from Southeast and Central Northern Michigan competing in the Advanced Men / Expert level cross-country races.  Michigan is the home for most of the team’s racing adventures in 2008 and they are currently competing in the Michigan Endurance Cup series hosted by Fun Promotions.  We will be making one trip out of state to the 24 hour Nationals in Wisconson in July.

If you see us, please stop and say hello.  We love to talk bikes and love to ride with anyone who’s willing!  Thanks for checking out the MTB-Life Racing Team (now stop reading this and go ride)!
