Mt Morris Challenge

MMC-LOGO-REGULARRegistration opens April 1!

WORS and the Waushara Area Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA), in cooperation with Northeast Wisconsin Trails, present the Mount Morris Challenge at the Nordic Mountain ski area on June 12.

The trail work at Nordic Mountain began in the spring of 2006 with shovels and rakes and resulted in the construction of a 5 mile loop. As the trails developed further, the site hosted regional championships and multiple national Pro XCT events. With annual trail expansion, course designers can now tailor course design to each WORS category providing challenge and fun for all.

WAMBA was established in 2011 to build and maintain trails in and around Waushara County. Recently, WAMBA proudly joined as a trail committee of Northeast Wisconsin Trails, the regional IMBA chapter for all of northeast WI. The trails at Nordic Mountain make up one of the largest and most diverse trail systems near the Fox Valley and WAMBA encourages the use of the trails free of charge all season long. For trail information follow us on Facebook.

Course Description

This course gives you a bit of everything, with a challenge of mixed climbs, forested single track, fast descents, and rock gardens. All of this combines to challenge the experts, yet simple enough for the beginner. The course is very spectator friendly with easy access to all the action.
