Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 - Take it to the top!


Climbing is the name of the game at the Telemark Ascent. With two different rides to choose from, the 3-lap Mega or 1-lap Single, you’re guaranteed to get those legs burning as you take in the incredible views from the top of Mt. Telemark in Cable, WI.

Brand new to the course this year is SINGLETRACK! Grind up those challenging climbs and be rewarded with majestic Singletrack descents on your way down. Each lap spans 11 miles and 1,000’ ft of elevation change. All events will start and finish at the American Birkebeiner Trailhead in Cable, WI.

For our valued Freewheel guests, we've cooked up some excellent discounts!

Current NICA athletes that would like to challenge themselves in the one-lap race can enter for FREE with discount code NICAATHLETE.
