St. Charles County, Missouri – Calling all mountain biking enthusiasts! Get geared up for one of the most competitive mountain bike races in St. Charles County—the Broemmelsiek Challenge at Broemmelsiek Park in Defiance! Presented by the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department, Momentum Cycles, and United Federation of Dirt (UFD), this annual event is from 9–11 a.m., Sunday, April 15, and offers exciting competitions for men, women and youth.

The event begins at 9 a.m. with a free race for the kids. Children ages 2–9 compete on a separate short loop with a few challenges. Then the adult competitions begin. Each adult race starts up a paved climb and flows on to a loop of fast hard packed single track that winds through woodlands, fields, and creek crossings. The top three winners of each race receive awards.

Race categories include Kids, Cat 1, Cat 2, Cat 3, Pro, Marathon and Junior. The cost of each race is from $15–$30, depending on category, and is open to ages 2 and up. Registration is requested. For more information, visit
