More than thirty years ago, Keith Bontrager took some discarded 700c road rim trash, and reworked it into a lightweight, race-ready, 26-inch mountain bike treasure. He dove into a dumpster and came out smelling like a legend (ok, a little like cabbage, but mostly legend). That legend— and the obsession with doing it ourselves until it’s right— continues today with the best-in-class Wheelworks products, hand built with pride and passion in Wisconsin, USA. bontrager.com/wheelworks


Welcome to the twenty-third year of the Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS), America’s largest state mountain bike racing series We look forward to bringing you another great series of fun events. We are anxious to reunite with those whom have already joined our community and to meet those who may be joining us for the first time.

WORS (Series) REGISTRATION Racers wishing to receive an overall in WORS or participate in WORS team competition must register with WORS. Series registration may be either completed online at www. wors.org by April 19, 2014 or by downloading a form from the website

or using the one from the 2014 WORS Racer Handbook and mailing it with the appropriate registration fee to WORS, postmarked no later than April 5, 2014. These deadlines are to allow for number assignment and notification in time for racers to register for the first WORS event of the year using their number. Series registrations after April 19th should take place at the WORS tent on site at a WORS event. A racer must have a series number for a result to count toward a series overall, WORS team competition, or to pre-register for all but the first race they wish to have counted in their series overall score. Points for series overalls will be figured retroactively for up to three races for first time Citizen registrants, but only one race for all others! (To receive retroactive credit a competitor must write that they are requesting retroactive credit along with their number from the race(s) for which they are requesting retroactive credit on their series registration form).

WORS will inform those registering by April 19th of their series number by e-mail and will begin assigning numbers on April 1st (specific number requests will not be given priority after March 31st). Those registering after April 19th will receive their number assignment at the WORS tent at their first event. A racer may not compete in Sport with a Citizen number and vice versa! WORS timing system will not accept an incorrect number and your data will fail to appear on the results.

LOST OR FORGOTTEN NUMBER PLATES: Replacement numbers are

available at the WORS tent at a cost of $5 for a new series number plate (plastic) or $1 for a temporary number plate. Back number replacements are 50 cents each.

For Citizen and Sport a competitor’s best 7 results will be used for tabulation of their final overall points. In the Comp, Cat 1, and Pro categories the best 8 results will be used. A competitor who competes in more than 7 events (8 for Comp, Cat 1, and Pro) will be awarded 5 bonus points per additional event completed (maximum of 30 points). DNF’s will remain 1 point. There are thirteen scoring opportunities over twelve races. In case of a tie, head-to-head results will be used to determine placing (first wins and then points if tie remains). If a tie still remains, a tie will be declared and both racers will receive equal

Special Scoring for the WORS Cup: Participation in multiple

events at the WORS Cup offers two scoring opportunities toward a racer’s overall. 1) Each series racer competing in the cross-country will receive series overall points based on their placement against only other series racers within the class they are competing in. WORS Cup categories & classes may vary. Participation in the WORS Cup Cross-Country is required to be eligible for a second overall score. 2)The second scoring opportunity at the WORS Cup comes from a series racer’s participation in either the Super D or the Short Track. Series points will be awarded for a racer’s placing amongst racers from their WORS category within the WORS Cup Short Track or Super D age class (not normal WORS class) raced.

VOLUNTEER

POINTS: Series competitors who forfeit participation in a race to help run the event may qualify for volunteer points. To receive these points, a point total equal to a racers lowest scoring race excluding DNF’s, a racer must: 1) contact the

WORS Rules to race by

wisconsin off Road series 2014 rules to race by

IT IS EACH AND EVERY COMPETITOR’S RESPONSIBILITY TO BE AWARE OF AND TO COMPLY WITH THESE RULES! Failure to do so may result in disqualification. ÊÊ Only registered racers may compete in a WORS event. An official WORS race number plate and back number with age class clearly marked must be displayed by each racer. No competitor shall cut, fold, mutilate, apply stickers to or alter in any way their WORS number plate. Numbers are not transferable. ÊÊ All competitors must wear a properly secured helmet, complying to DOT or CPSC Standards at all times during competition as well as when pre-riding or warming up on the course. Competitors must wear proper riding attire, including a shirt, shorts, and fully-enclosed shoes during competition. ÊÊ Each competitor is responsible for having their bike in good operating condition, including but not limited to: two fully-functioning brakes, plugged handlebar ends, NO hazardous attachments including kickstands and reflectors, adjusted hubs and headset, true wheels, and a sound frame (no cracks, severe bends or dents). Race and/or WORS officials may remove any racer from the start whom they feel is attempting to compete on an unsafe bike. Racers must start with and ride the same bike throughout any single event. ÊÊ Personal

listening devices which may interfere with a racer’s awareness of other racers and their surroundings are strictly prohibited on the race course. ÊÊ All Competitors must be self sufficient. All repairs during a race must be performed by the individual racers. Tools and spare parts used in a repair must be carried by the racer.

16 wors 2014

No off-course assistance is allowed and racers may not “cannibalize” or accept any parts off anyone else’s bike during a race. ÊÊ Deviation

from the marked course will result in disqualification unless the competitor reenters the course at point of exit. This includes ducking under any flagging marking the boundaries of the finish chute. A competitor that purposely leaves the marked course during competition is deemed to have retired from the race and will be scored as a DQ or DNF. ÊÊ Feeding and/or “hand-ups” to a racer from a support person may occur on any part of the course with the following stipulations: 1) all those feeding must stand to the right just off course, 2) running with a racer is prohibitted, 3) feeding must not interfere with another competitor. This is an override of USA Cycling Mountain rules and is in effect throughout WORS. ÊÊ Self feed bottle despensers or the like must be located in a disignated feed zone near the start of the lap. ÊÊ Any competitor littering the course with a gel packet, food wrappers or other waste will be disqualified! ÊÊ A competitor on their bike has the right-of-way over one pushing their bike. Whenever a competitor is off their bike, they need to make every effort to allow access to the fastest/most rideable part of the track to racers on their bikes. ÊÊ Lapped racers must yield the track immediately. A lapped racer by definition is one from the same starting wave as the overtaking racer.

WISCONSIN OFF ROAD SERIES

Other racers being overtaken should make every effort to let faster riders by as soon as the course allows. ÊÊ It is the responsibility of an overtaking rider to pass safely. No racer is expected to stop their race to allow other racers to pass. However, no rider shall intentionally impede the progress of another. A rider should make his/her presence known when overtaking a slower rider (i.e. “On your left. Please!”). Especially in singletrack, await return communication from the rider being overtaken that it is safe to pass. A rider passing another is expected to do so in a manner which requires the least accommodation from the rider being passed. ÊÊ The use of profanity or flagrant discourtesy directed at another competitor, race worker, or spectator is grounds for disqualification from an individual event, first offense, and WORS upon the second offense! ÊÊ Mountain biking is an individual sport, and even though WORS does have a team competition, entering into agreements or forming alliances (monetary or otherwise) to control or alter the results of a race will result in disqualification from that individual event. ÊÊ Pre-riding the race course after the start of the first race of the day is prohibited! On race day the only individuals riding bicycles on the race course should be those entered in the category(ies) competing at the time. Interference with another’s race by doing so is grounds for disqualification, (i.e. an Elite racer


riding on the race course during the Sport race in such a way as to cause alteration of results or put Sport racers in danger). ÊÊ A race may be halted or rerouted by the race director or emergency personnel in case of severe injury to a rider or life threatening weather. Racers failing to heed the instruction of medical personal and/or course marshals attending to an injured rider will be disqualified! ÊÊ Protests of the results, the conduct of a racer, or any other matters related to the race, may only be filed by a competitor in the event or a race official. Protests must be reported to or filed with a timing official within 10 minutes of the completion of an event, initial posting of results in question, or a ruling to be considered valid. All results become final as of the presentation of awards.

ÊÊ The sale of merchandise or display of products for promotional purposes at WORS events without the permission of WORS and the individual event director is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to banners, tents, and anything not permanently attached to a vehicle that a competitor has driven to an event.

situations not specifically covered by these rules, is final!

ÊÊ Ignorance of the RULES is NEVER an admissible defense! Read and know the rules.

All WORS races are sanctioned by USA Cycling. USA Cycling rules not covered here may also apply.

Final interpretation the Rules is up to the Event Director, WORS and/or USA Cycling representatives on hand. These individuals have control over all competitors, scorers, and officials at each WORS event and their decision on these rules, and any

WISCONSIN OFF ROAD SERIES

Registration Form (along with team roster) must be turned into WORS and have each competitor’s WORS series number and name on the roster. • A registered WORS racer may only ride for one team. (This includes junior team members.) • A team may enter one or more teams in the Junior Division, but only one team in any of the other divisions. • All riders listed on a team’s roster will have that team’s name listed with their name on all WORS results postings. Team Changes: Competitors who change teams during the series should notify WORS as soon as possible after the change via a team modification form. The team points they have earned prior to notification will remain with their previous team. Team points cannot be contributed to their new team until the next year.


Registration

Teams must register by July 14th. However, teams have through the sixth race to make additions to their rosters. Team points will be awarded retroactively through the date each team member began racing with a WORS series number.

Pick up a team registration form from the WORS tent at a race or on the website at www.wors.org. Turn it in to WORS by July 14th, 2014. Team scores are figured retroactively back to the first race for which each team member had a 2014 WORS series number.

Team Scoring

Participants: To receive credit toward the “Participants” awards in WORS Team Competition a competitor must have a valid WORS series number and must either finish the race with a recorded time or report their DNF to timing the day of the race. Teams receive one point for each team member, meeting the above criteria, towards the “Participants” competition. Points: Points for the “Points” competition of WORS Team Competition are figured by taking Class Multiplier the series overall points each team Citizen Youth .6 member earns (see WORS Guidelines, CITIZEN .9 WORS Scoring) and multiplying those 1.2 points by the class multiplier. No SPORT 1.5 points are earned for DNFs or DNS’s. COMP

1.8 Only racers listed on the team roster ELITE that accompanied their team registration form will be scored.

IOLA BUMP & JUMP Iola Winter Sports Area ~ Iola, WI Sunday, May 4th, 2014

The

Iola Bump and Jump race course evolves a little each year based on racer input, rider and spectator safety, and the condition of individual sections of the track. However, the overall character that makes this course a favorite of many remains constant. The start loop that takes racers up and around the back side of Iola’s 40 & 60 meter ski jumps and then drops back down past the lodge into the jump bowl may be the best lead-out in all of WORS. In addition, several minor singletrack modifications have been made to improve the racing experience for all. For the youngest novice racers, the Bump & Jump’s Kids Race course provides an opportunity for them to expand their skills. With the start and finish areas near the ski jumping bowl, the Bump and Jump offers spectators many fantastic opportunities to view their favorite riders. A post-race spaghetti dinner will be provided free of charge to all racers by the Iola Winter Sports Club, with other concessions available in the ski chalet. Onsite rough camping will be available for $10 per car first-come,first-serve. Nearby Iola Pines Campground provides full facilities, but fills up fast (see ad below for contact info). For more details and race registration information, please contact race director, Phil Johnsrud at

715-572-9884, or johnsrudp@tds.net. Sponsoring the Iola Bump and Jump is always an enjoyable experience for the Iola Winter Sports Club volunteers because of the great attitude of WORS participants. Club members volunteer year after year to work the race and to be part of the fun and excitement that WORS brings to the small friendly community of Iola. The Iola Winter Sports Club’s mission is to carry on a ski jumping tradition, provide low cost youth and family ski programs, and provide high quality cross-country skiing for its members. Proceeds from the Iola Bump and Jump help the club continue to improve the facility. Race director, Phil Johnsrud and the Iola Winter Sports Club want to make this event the best it can be. If there is any way for them to make this race better for you, please let them know.

CRYSTAL LAKE CLASSIC Camp Tesomas ~ Rhinelander, WI Sunday, May 18th, 2014

In

1997 a Rhinelander area Fire Department with the help of several volunteers started a mountain bike race created by Bikes-N-Boards, a premier outfitter for outdoor sports. Now run by the Boy Scouts of Samoset Council, this race will help fund the world renowned Camp Tesomas facility open since 1935 where youth from around the globe have come to enjoy the Northwoods. Camp Tesomas (Hanna Venture Base) is located only minutes north of Rhinelander, where it’s set on the shores of Crystal Lake, a beautiful spring fed lake deserving of its name. This pristine setting is perfect for mountain biking with the lake making an excellent choice for cooling down after a hard ride through the woods. 2007 marked the first year that this Mountain Bike Race was affiliated with the WORS. The race begins and ends at Camp Tesomas (Hanna Venture Base). The trail also traverses lands owned by the School District of Rhinelander, Plum Creek, Inc., and Terry Strong. We thank each of them for their cooperation in allowing this trail to exist. And a special thank you to Wayne Fish, for his dedicated hours BikesNBoards Ad.pdf 1 1/31/2014 12:44:27 AM of trail work. We are indebted to his dedication to this race.

Wayne was taken from us by brain cancer and this race is now dedicated to Wayne Fish. His dream of a premier race in the Rhinelander area will live on in his honor for years to come. The course is heavily forested, containing a mix of hardwoods and pine plantations. The soil is ideally suited for mountain biking, made up of rock, sand and clay. Rain or shine, the surface holds up well to the pounding of bike tires. The rolling terrain also creates a tough, exhilarating, yet fun bike ride. We have cabins and campsites available during the weekend. And we are one of the only races that provide every racer with shower and bike wash facilities. And don’t forget we have the state’s largest climbing tower and zip-line open for your enjoyment with boating and other activities to keep everyone in the family happy.

Bikes-N-Boards is a proud sponsor of the Crystal Lake Classic and mountain biking program at Camp Tesomas. Al Jozwiak, Proprietor 1670 N. Stevens St. Rhinelander, WI 54501 moreinfo@bikes-n-boards.com

BATTLE OF CAMROCK CamRock Park #3 ~ Rockdale, WI Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Capital

Off-Road Pathfinders has worked for years to build CamRock Park into one of the hidden gems of mountain biking in Wisconsin. CORP is a volunteer organization that builds and maintains the majority of the off-road cycling trails in Dane County. We are working diligently to make the Battle of CamRock a race that you will look forward to every year. The trail system at CamRock is a blend of wide and fast flowing single-track that runs through open fields of prairie grass, wooded single-track with bermed turns, and more technical single-track with a touch of roots and rocks. The Battle of CamRock course contains some great downhill sections that will have you begging for another lap. From Citizen to Elite, all courses contain fun single-track, numerous feed zones, and finish with a grass double-track climb before sprinting to the finish. The primary parking location is located just North of the CamRock Area 3. Enter Parking area 4 at the top Highland

Drive just past the intersection with Koshkongon Road. Additional parking is available along Koshkonong Road near the primary parking area or in the CamRock 2 Camping area. We will have a free air conditioned shuttle bus running between all parking areas and the Town of Cambridge. All riders on mountain bike trails in Dane County Parks are required to carry a valid 2014 Trail Pass. Capitol Off-Road Pathfinders will continue to pay $2 per racer to cover trail fees for all participates during the Saturday and Sunday of the race weekend.

Whether your forte is hammering on the wide open rolling hills or carving a line through technical terrain, you’re assured a great ride at this event.

RED FLINT FIRECRACKER Eau Claire County Expo Center — Eau Claire, WI Sunday, June 29th, 2014

The

Chippewa Off Road Bike Association (CORBA) will be celebrating 10 years of the “Red Flint Firecracker”. That’s 10 years of amazing trails, dedicated volunteers and dauntless racers. The Firecracker has become known for its fabulous trails and family friendly venue and this year will be no exception. With our mix of twisty pines, hard-packed Whoops and speedy ski trails, racers can plan to begin their pre-ride Friday afternoon. All race proceeds go directly to CORBA, your nonprofit organization who builds and maintains the trails you love. A special thank you goes out to Lowes Creek County Park for their support of mountain biking! The Firecracker weekend has plenty in store for you, beginning with onsite camping both Friday and Saturday nights so that you and yours can sit back and enjoy the weekend without needing to leave the grounds. What’s more is this year we will have Fire Truck Pizza by Foster Cheese Haus ready for purchase on Friday night. Don’t miss your chance to savor fresh, hot woodfired pizza from 5pm – 8pm Friday. Since our goal is to provide you with great trails AND an incredible weekend of bikes and camaraderie, the fun continues Saturday, June 29th with course pre-rides, our popular All-You-

Can-Eat pasta feed (a fund raiser for McDonnell High School cross country team) and hanging out by the bonfire. You may even want to top the evening off with a night ride! Start your race day with an amazing All-You-Can-Eat breakfast (fundraiser) that will be sure to fuel you up. Once you’ve completed your race, relax at the Racer Lounge and enjoy the shade, free snacks and water. And don’t forget, we will have great swag for all registered racers!!! One thing we boast is “spectator-friendly” viewing areas. There are many sections of trail just a short walk from the Eau Claire County Expo that feature an elevated view of some of the riding or running challenges the competitors will tackle. We will also have concessions for sale. Are you a runner? The fleet-of-foot can add to the weekend by signing up for the Firecracker Trail Run and choose between a 5K or 10K race through the singletrack. Not racing? We are always in need of volunteers, who also receive a swag bag PLUS a t-shirt! Please be sure to watch the CORBA message board and our Facebook page for course updates and race enhancements that are still in progress. This Firecracker is always a blast!!

THANK YOU 2014 FIRECRACKER SPONSORS!

SUNBURST SHOWDOWN Sunburst Ski Area— Kewaskum, WI Sunday, July 27th, 2014

S

unburst Ski Area and Attitude Racing are looking forward to hosting WORS racers for this July event with great riding and racing on the trails at Sunburst. Through the years WORS racers have seen the race and the area evolve. Sunburst Ski and Recreation Area is already home to the best winter skiing, snowboarding, and tubing in Southern Wisconsin and is always getting better. Set in the heart of the Kettle Moraine, the Sunburst race course offers climbing and descending like no other course in WORS. Parts of the track present road race like speed, while others challenge competitors with tight twisting sections of wooded and rocky technical singletrack. A spectator’s dream, the Sunburst venue is wide open. Racers start and finish in a central area and serpentine their way up, down, across and around the slopes of Sunburst with a large portion of the course visible from the aforementioned central area. The speed of this course tends to keep the racing tight. Race director, Dave Haase and his staff of friends,

SCARLET KNIGHT SCRAMBLE Nordic Mountain ~ Mt. Morris, WI Sunday, August 17th, 2014

Different

name, same legendary course! Nordic Mountain is well-known in the biking community for hosting the Subaru Cup since 2007, which was the first mountain bike race in Waushara County. However, its real claim to fame came in 2010 when the Subaru Cup became part of the USA Cycling Pro Cross Country Tour, hosting the Midwest Regional Championship. Nordic Mountain attracted our nation’s best riders (as well as international professionals) to compete, and drew even more spectators who wanted to watch the pros ride. This year, the Nordic Mountain bike race is returning to its grass roots as the Subaru Cup changes venues. There will be a new name, the Scarlet Knight Scramble, but the same great features that drew the pros to the hill will remain! The course will challenge novice as well as advanced riders with its rigorous uphill climbs and demanding twists and turns. The switchbacks make for multiple viewing opportunities, which is a spectator’s dream! In the summer of 2010, a group of dedicated parents came up with the concept of creating a youth cycling team to serve the Fox River Valley area. From

this concept, The Fox Cities Youth Cycling Team – The Scarlet Knights was established with a mission of encouraging children of all ability levels to participate in the sport of cycling and helping them develop into well rounded teenagers and young adults. The team has grown from nine children in its inaugural year to 29 in 2013, with more than 250 entries in cycling races across the state of Wisconsin. In the summer of 2013, the team was asked to take the next step in giving back to our sport by directing a race in the 2014 Wisconsin Off-Road Series. Naturally, the Scarlet Knights were honored by this offer and eagerly accepted this opportunity. They are proud to present the first The Scarlet Knight Scramble on Sunday, August 17, 2014 at Nordic Mountain in Mt. Morris, WI. It is an event you WON’T want to miss!

REFORESTATION RAMBLE In Honor of Rob Schuette

Reforestation Camp ~ Suamico, WI Sunday, August 24th, 2014

The

marathon format of racing to continues to flourish in Suamico, WI at the Reforestation Ramble held at the Brown County Reforestation Camp. WORS continues to offer a variety of different courses to keep the racing fresh, the Ramble is definitely a bit different than the rest with longer laps containing a nice mix of single track, double track…..and the energy zapping rolling hills that have become a must have feature of the Reforestation Ramble. The laps are fast, the single track flows, the double track is wide open…..the speed trap will be in full effect and pack racing may just be the ticket…..if you can hold on to the wheel in front of you? The sandy based soil holds up well no matter what the weather, so fast fun racing is a guarantee when you take the start line at the Reforestation Ramble. The late August date serves as a nice warm-up for the Chequamegon 40, which takes place just a few weeks after the Ramble. So come on out to the Reforestation Ramble for one last tune up for the 40 or to simply push yourself like never before! Please note the different start times for the Reforestation Ramble, remind yourself and fellow racers that the Ramble does not follow the traditional start times due to the distances of each category. Juniors and 1st timers get the day started at 9:30 a.m., Citizen and Sport classes roll out at 10;15 a.m.,

and the final race of the day is the Comp and Elite at 12:30 p.m. Although Sunday is race day, be sure to stop out Saturday for preriding, the Vendor/Exhibitor Zone, and Learn to Race clinics. Preriding will begin at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. Like most state and county trails, a trails/rider fee is required and will be collected at registration, with two day deals available. Plenty of lodging is conveniently located on either of the major highways, 43 or 41. Rough camping will be available close by at a nominal fee. A new feature this year at the Reforestation Camp is the Adventure Park located in the start area behind the ski lodge. The Adventure Park offers a climbing wall, ropes course, and dual zip lines that will offer fun to all racers and families alike. Come to the Ramble this year for a full weekend of outdoor fun and activities. Please remember! Pets are not allowed at the Park due to the NEW Zoo being next door to the Reforestation Camp.
