Event notes

Unleash Your Beast!

Florida may not have mountains, but it has epic single track with plenty of pedaling in-between! Grind, Sweat, and Beers is Flagler County’s first enduro-style race. What do we mean by enduro-style? Well, riders will race technical trails and pedal the route that connects them. The trails will be timed; the connector will not. Fastest combined time at Mala Compra and Graham Swamp MTB Trails wins. At the end, we will have lunch and beer at Hammock Park. Food will be provided for all racers and volunteers.

FASTR members get a $10 discount AND the satisfaction of supporting their local trails. If you're a FASTR member and/or want to redeem your volunteer points,
email us to get your promo code! The registration cost for this event increases every month; your promo code pricing will be based on the registration cost on the day that you requested your code.
