The Lumberjack 100 will happen Saturday, June 16, near Udell, Michigan. It's the third event in the National Ultra Endurance (NUE) series and also serves as the Michigan state Ultra Singlespeed Championship.

Michigan's only 100-mile (161km) mountain bike race will be held again at the Big-M Ski Area in the Manistee National Forest. Four 25-mile (40.2km) loops make up the race which features a 99% singletrack course and 8,000 feet (2438m) of climbing.

In the men's race Chris Eatough (Trek / VW) will attempt to defend his 2006 win, but he'll be challenged by the likes of Tinker Juarez (Cannondale) and Harlan Price (Independent Fabrication). Danielle Musto (Slingshot), who took third last year, will be going for gold this year as last year's winner Karen Mason (Litespeed) and runner up Trish Stevenson (Cannondale) were not on the startlist as of earlier this week.
