The latest on the Firecracker

Things are building for the 3rd Annual Chippewa Valley Firecracker and our sponsors have stepped it up a notch this year.  We have added Rock-N- Roll-To-Go for our Saturday night entertainment.  This will be a good reason to get the tent set up and the pre-ride done early to catch the good times at the Rock-N-Roll-To-Go Inflatable

Registration Open for Firecracker Off-Road Trail Run

The Chippewa Falls McDonald High School Track Club has come forward to become the local organizing committee and staff WORS Firecracker Off-Road trail run.  Now with staff in place to run the event the race is on and both mail-in forms and online registration is available at trailrun.wors.org.  WORS has also secured a partner for the Reforestation Ramble trail run and registration for that event is also available.  We are continuing to work on the other two events on the trail run schedule.  We have strong possibilities for the Nordic Mountain Adventure, but still need to find an interested organization for the Crystal Ridge Scramble.  If you are part of or know of a group or club that may be interested in partnering with WORS to run the Crystal Ridge Scramble please contact Don Edberg at (715) 592-5095 or don@wors.org.

Phillips Dirtfighter 2007This weekend, WORS racers made the trek north for the Marshfield Clinic Sports Medicine Phillips Dirtfighter at the Price County Fairgrounds in Phillips, WI. This year's Dirtfighter was race number four of the Subaru sponsored Wisconsin Off Road Series. Sunday's event also marked the 16th edition of racing at Phillips, the only event in the series to remain of the six that made up the inaugural WORS season. Despite an excellent course and great venue amenities, with nearly 500 racers in attendance the Dirtfighter is not one of WORS best drawing events. Those in attendance consistently give the Phillips Dirtfighter Classic very high marks as one of the best venues in all of WORS. Phillips is a fun ride and for those intrepid competitors is "certainly worth the drive!"

The course this year was fast and dry for the Citizen racers, who began under slightly overcast skies. Although clouds threatened, showers held off until the first lap of the CycleOps Sport race. The light to moderate rain continued while the Sports were on the track, making for slicker rocks and wetter dust. However, aside from distant lighting and thunder, the area was spared from strong storms. The afternoon BelGioioso Elite and Clif Comp start was slightly delayed by a severe thunderstorm warning, though the storm hit about ten miles south of the race site. By the time Elite and Comp competitors took to the track, the rain had passed and the heat came on not long after.

The Hayes Disc Brakes Citizen Series Race took racers on two laps of the Phillips course. This week, 1st place overall Citizen women
