Start the MTB season off right by joining us on April 27th, 2024 for the 34th annual Yankee Springs Time Trial, the longest running mountain bike race in Michigan. As one of the largest time trial races in the Midwest, the event regularly draws over 750 participants who are looking to challenge themselves on some of the most advanced and well maintained single track in the state. 

The courses are challenging and fun for all, from kids to elite racers.  We have free strider and kids races ranging from 0.5 miles to 2.0 miles in length and registered races ranging from 8 miles for beginners to 22 miles for expert and elite.  There is something for everyone.   

The Deep Lake trail is 95% single track, but affords enough passing room for courteous racing.  With participants going off every 10 seconds there is plenty of space between riders, so... it's you against the trail.

The Yankee Springs Time Trial is an all volunteer run, West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance (WMMBA) benefit event. All proceeds support WMMBA's efforts to maintain and improve trails in West Michigan. For more information, visit the WMMBA ( web site.

Thank you! My first Yankee TT and I had such an awesome time I can't wait for next year. It was a really well run event. Registration, camping, parking, staging, timing, results, podiums and refreshments all went really really smooth!

As my first MTB race I was amazed at what a well oiled machine the race seemed to be. So as a racer thank you to all the volunteers and organizers!
