SUAMICO – Five hundred plus mountain bike racers converged on the Brown County Reforestation Camp on Sunday, August 7, for an all day festival of dirt, sweat and glory. In the Refo Ramble, the seventh of nine Wisconsin races, area team racers took a few of the top spots in the highest ranked Pro/Competitive category.

The five lap 26 mile race was the climax of the day. The Broken Spoke team fielded age class champion Casey Hildebrant (29 and under) who finished in one hour, 37 minutes and 47 seconds. Hildebrant was edged by in the overall times by age class winner and fastest racer of the day, Cole House (30/39) of Oneida, and Nathan Guerra of Vision Cycling in Oconomowoc.
