With the faint sounds of the roaring lions from the nearby NEW Zoo, the Wisconsin Off-Road Series (WORS) held race #8, The Reforestation Ramble in Green Bay WI last Sunday. This race unlike most, with little to no hills and flowy singletrack made it extremely fast and exciting. Different from years past, this course was a 6 mile loop that covered all the fast corners and fire lanes the Reforestation Camp has to offer.
Last weekend the Wisconsin Off Road Series(WORS) made a stop in the western part of the state for the Hixon Forest Epic. The 10th race of the WORS season took place on a beautiful day in the bluffs of LaCrosse, drawing in over 400 finishers. The course was like no other, with a lead out to a long gravel road downhill, with racers reaching top speeds. Once competitors reached the bottom of the bluff, they began the approximately 15 minute switchback climb back to the top where it was a half mile road time trial to the singletrack.
The Wisconsin Off Road Series hosted the Pro Cross Country Tour last weekend at Cascade Mountain in Portage, WI. Mother Nature made sure the heat and humidity was high for the WORS Cup Pro XCT race presented by Trek. The course was of the modern World Cup model, approximately 3.1 miles in length per lap. It wound itself several times to provide spectators with convenient access and numerous viewing points. The pro women had 5 laps of punching climbs and tight corners while the men had 6.
