The Wisconsin Off Road Series, America’s largest state mountain bike racing series, and Ray’s Indoor MTB Park are pleased to announce a new partnership agreement to make mountain biking in the Upper Midwest even better. When the all-new RaysMTB Milwaukee location celebrates their Grand Opening this November 12, guests will find a dedicated WORS area with information about the popular mountain bike Series, now in it’s 20th year. The partnership between WORS and Ray’s will include special events throughout the coming season.
“We know that RaysMTB pays just as much attention to creating a great rider experience as we do at WORS events,” said WORS Series Director Don Edberg. “The development of Ray’s Cleveland over the last few years has been amazing. RaysMTB has created the same high quality, positive, community environment that also makes WORS special.”
While the Wisconsin Series hosts a national-level Pro XCT race and some of the fastest and most competitive amateur racing in the nation, WORS Series Director Don Edberg believes believes that mountain bike racing, especially WORS racing, is not just for the highly trained and talented.
“Mountain biking is a great physical activity that can add to your health and quality of life. WORS is as much about fun, shared experiences and making new friends as it is about the racing,” said Edberg.
“We’re happy that the enduring popularity of the WORS Series helped convince Ray to bring this new location to Wisconsin,” said WORS race reporter Claire Cannon. “WORS is excited to be there for Ray’s new beginning and continued growth, especially because RaysMTB Milwaukee location will have a unique emphasis on singletrack flow and mountain bike features.”
WORS and RaysMTB share so many goals that a partnership was natural.
“I had a great time at the WORS Subaru Cup Pro XCT this summer,” said Ray. “The course was fun and the crowds during the races were great. WORS has a good thing going and we’re ready to host some great riding for WORS racers this winter in Milwaukee.”
“We know Ray’s is equally interested in creating a safe, friendly atmosphere to challenge riders at all levels of skill and experience,” explained Don Edberg. “Both Ray’s and WORS want to get more people on more bikes, and encourage people of all ages and abilities to enjoy riding more often. We’re excited to let our racers know about Ray’s.”
“If you’ve never been to Ray’s before, I think it’s also important to know that Ray’s is not just about jumping your bike and being totally hardcore,” added Cannon. “You don’t need a BMX or dirt bike. It’s a great time for everyone, with fun riding opportunities for all levels of experience. You can also rent a great Trek mountain or dirt bike for just $10 a day. And, of course, their Grand Opening BBQ is going to be fun. It’s going to be great seeing all of our WORS friends there this winter.”
