CORBA Trail Day ~ A FANTASTIC trail day was held this past Saturday. Much progress was made. Here is a map of the current sections that you can ride at the Pipestone Quarry
** Be aware that Hunting Season’s are underway and
BLAZE Orange is a good idea**
Do not miss the Deer Fly Chase on SATURDAY OCTOBER 3rd. So mark your calendars and plan to race (or volunteer)!!
The course will be as epic as ever — outstanding terrain, a mix of gravel roads, ski trails and the best singletrack around (new singletrack every year, that’s our promise to you).
The open class has two race distances: Long course, 28 miles , Short course, 17 miles.
Juniors choose from: High School race, 17 miles, Middle School race, 9 miles. And discounted entry fee of just $10!!
For those familiar with the area, key route highlights are: Rolling paced start on blacktop from Dog Island; the race will start with the Rattlesnake hill equalizer climb; rolling dirt roads offer plenty of fast riding; balanced with technical singletrack and ski trails for passing; a long gravel climb on Deer Fly Trail and even more sweet singletrack, will further separate the contenders (long course racers); fast open ski trail finish near Dog Island.
Other unbelievable highlights include: $25 pre-registration, sponsored food and Fat Tire beer to all finishers (ages 21+), prizes and awards to top finishers.
Sponsors include: New Belgium Brewing/Park Ridge Distributing, Spring Street Sports, WI Scale, Nature’s Pharmacy, Lindsley Chiropractic, Gordy’s County Market
