SUAMICO – Mountain bike racing was on the menu all day at the Brown County Reforestation Camp on Sunday, Aug. 18.
The ninth outing in the Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS) attracted almost 430 racers from Wisconsin and surrounding states.
While rain threatened, light winds and dappled sunshine prevailed and kept the sandy trails fast and dry.
Two local athletes were crowned overall champions of the Refo Ramble.
Cole House of Oneida (Pete’s Garage Team) won the overall competition in 1 hour and 43 minutes.
House completed the four 7.2-mile laps almost 3 minutes faster than his win last year on the same course.
Aidan Lemorande of Suamico (Pete’s Garage) took third place.
Leia Schneeberger Rollins of De Pere (Broken Spoke Team) was the first woman across the line in 1 hour and 25 minutes.
She completed the three laps almost four minutes faster than her championship time last year.
There were four additional divisions for a variety of ages and skill levels, each with its own start and podium ceremonies.
The Refo Ramble was hosted by the Ashwaubenon Nordic Ski Team families and athletes who provided the course, water stops, concessions, check-in and finish line support.
