Over 140 mountain bike riding fools spent the weekend outside of State College, PA in the Rothrock State Forest. They rode all over the mountains brushing up against the pillow like white puffy blooms of the mountain laurel while listening to the cicadas taunt from above in the amazing mountainous backcountry of Central PA during the Stoopid 50 Mile Backcountry Race.

The Mt. Nittany Wheelworks boys and the Nittany Mountain Bike Association did an awesome job behind the scene getting the course and logistics for the Stoopid 50 all dialed in before and cleaned up after the event. The route showcased a ton of sweet singletrack close to State College and Lewistown.

Results.... Men Overall - Men Open - Master - Singlespeed - Women Overall - Women Open
