There will be four (4) designated spectator areas plus the Pro Team Area - all of these will be connected by marked spectator paths, and indicated with signs. Collect your scavenger hunt map and instructions at the Trek Stores of Madison tent. They'll also be supplied in racer bags! Two ways to win! Win the Scavenger Hunt Raffle! Each spectator area will hold a unique clue for the hunt. Look for the Trek Women signs. Collect all five to be entered for the win. Every SUPERFAN who visits each area should be able to complete the hunt. Completed scavenger hunt cards will be collected at the Trek Stores of Madison tents in the EXPO area for one hour after the Pro women's finish. (WORS Volunteers who work through the Pro Women's race will be automatically entered to win!!! Please stop by the Trek Store tent so we have your name.) Win the SUPERFAN Photo Contest! Bring your camera or cell phone and take a photo (or a dozen) of yourself at each spectator area. Photos with friends, racers, and massive amounts of SUPERFAN AWESOME will be in-it-to-win-it. We will be asking the Pro women to help us find their favorite SUPERFAN. So get out there with your replica team jersey, your cowbell and a great attitude. Face paint optional. After the event, email your photos to worswomen@gmail.com. Pick up your SUPERFAN map at Race Registration, or from the Trek Stores of Madison tents in the EXPO area. WORS WOMEN SUPERFAN HUNT, presented by Trek Women Want to know what it will be like to spectate during the 2011 Subaru Cup Pro XCT? It will be something like this: Our new WORS Videographer, Marty Tank and WORS Photographer Jared Brodjeski will be on the course during the SUPERFAN event. Marty will be collecting video for a series of short video stories about teams, families, and women who race at WORS - as well as footage for the Subaru Cup movie. Please take a moment to talk to Marty if you'd like to be a part of those stories. Jared will be looking to collect some great Superfan photos!

  • 1: Start and Finish - The start and finish chute will be a spectator focal point at the very center of the venue. Be there for the exciting start and especially for the finish.
  • 2: Nitro Amphitheatre - Nitro is the first singletrack-focused spectator area that the Pro women will reach after leaving the start.
  • The new spectator area for Nitro is on the hill overlooking the start. SUPERFANS can choose to watch the start from the hill, then move less than 100 feet up the slope - without crossing the course - to watch as the Pro women descend through new sections of technical singletrack, including A (technically harder) and B (safer but slower) lines around a drop, and then down the face of a large boulder.
  • Nitro's amphitheater-shaped grove falls away steeply from the grassy hill, affording great visibility of the racers from the grassy slope. WORS Trail Builders have trimmed low branches to allow spectators views of multiple sections of trail from a large area around the rim of the bowl. While you're cheering the Pro women, check out DJ Costa, who will be taking racer and SUPERFAN requests!
  • 3: Trek Firelane Drops - Fans will have 10-15 minutes to move across the ski hill on the marked spectator path and catch the Pro women as they pass through this section near the end of their first lap. Firelane was our most popular spectator area in 2010, lined with Trek cowbell-wielding SUPERFANS.
  • 4: Pro Team and EXPO Area - Check in at the Pro Team and EXPO area anytime on Saturday before the Pro women begin their race, or while passing through to the last spectator area - Hang On.
  • SUPERFANS are welcome in the Pro Team area throughout the Subaru Cup, and we encourage you to visit and check out the Pro team Rigs. LUNA, Subaru-Trek, Giant, Specialized and BMC are just some of the powerhouse teams who will be bringing their big rig to the Cup. Shimano Neutral Support will also be in the Pro Team Area - and can offer needed mechanical assistance to any racer. Make sure to visit.
  • 5: Hang On - Another new spectator area for 2011, Hang On is across the ski hill from the Firelane Drops but the easiest way is to walk through the EXPO and Pro Team area, then along the marked path. Hang On is section of curvy singletrack that descends the hill in a beautiful, shady grove. It’s easy to see the racers zoom through a series of challenging corners, but you'll need to enter the woods a bit for the best view. To reach Hang On, the spectator path will also run alongside the singletrack as the Pro racers pass through a small rock garden.
After visiting each area, choose your favorite - or continue to move between them to see the racers multiple times on each lap. Remember to make it back to the START / FINISH area to see the exciting conclusion and encourage racers to the finish line!

Cross the course carefully, and at designated areas. Please always be aware of where the course is, and check for racers before crossing or standing near the track. Any spectator who impedes a racer will be disqualified. Be respectful. Please respect the racers, and your fellow spectators. The Subaru Cup is a family friendly event. Be awesome.
