We apologize but after an extensive tour of the trail this morning following Friday night’s rains, we have decided to cancel Beast Master.
While LAXC’s policy is rain or shine, extensive erosion damage has made a workable race route in an already tough course impossibly dangerous. All registrations will be refunded. Please look forward to the finale in Lafayette.
Co-hosted by TMBRA and LAXC, come race the best from Texas! The biggest, longest-running mountain bike race in the State Of Louisiana on its greatest trail in Lincoln Parish Park, come celebrate its 25th anniversary with us. | $40 onsite registration
LAXC is seeking sponsors for the Fall 2017 season. As a non-profit race series, our costs are as low as possible, but we can promise marketing visibility to many cyclists across the state. To help keep the series going; our sponsorship goal this year is only $500. If you know of a business or organization that would like to contribute to that goal, please email us, email@example.com.
Thanks for a great 2016 series! Thanks first, to all of our racers. Secondly, thanks to all of the volunteers that made the series happen. To our champions, make sure to send your mailing address and jersey size to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send out your championship jersey. LAXC will be back once again next Fall, and we’ll have a lot of fun new, different, races. Check back in as we finalize the 2017 schedule.

Onsite registration will be Saturday the 22nd from 4-6PM at the pavilion nearest to the trailhead, and also on Sunday morning up to 30 minutes prior to your race time. We will be accepting debit/credit cards! However we recommend online registration.
The final challenge awaits. Become one with the trail with the forest at your command. Race the infamous “Beast” trail in St. Francisville’s West Feliciana Sports Park, a 6-mile World Cup style loop of challenging technical roots, climbs and fast drops. Only true Beast Masters can be crowed Louisiana state champions!
Beginner/Cat 3 will do one lap of 6.7 miles. Intermediate/Cat 2 (and Cat1/2 female) will do two laps of 13.3 miles total. Pro/Cat 1 racers will do three laps of 19.9 miles total.
Race the smoothest, most scenic, oldest trail in Louisiana. Part of the Wild Azalea trail, this 8 mile loop is a favorite amongst locals for its all-weather dependability and hilliness without being too killer steep or technical. Always a fun race course. Yes we are racing this in the day this year, but may do a night race here next year. Volunteers for course monitoring are needed, please call 225-267-5858 or email email@example.com
