The race starts and finishes at Whiteface Mountain, exploring Jeep roads near Jay and Saddleback mountains to a technical stretch of single track at Hardy road trails and again on the Flume trail and Whiteface mountain singletrack. This was the site of the 1980 Olympic Winter Games' downhill ski races — offering the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies. All racers ride one lap in the finish section on Whiteface Mountain.

Wilmington Whiteface could not only gain you entry into the LT100 MTB, but it could also boost your corral starting position! Rider starting positions are organized in color-coded corrals. These positions will be based on a finish time from the 2016 (year prior only) LT100 MTB race, a 2016 or 2017 qualifier event finish time, or if you hold a current USCI Pro Elite license. Please enter finish times or license numbers when prompted during the registration process.
