The traditional finale of WORS, this year’s event, Deb’s Most Amazing Outdoor Adventure, also known as the FatKats MTB Challenge (there is a story here), will use a fun and challenging mix of trails in Sheboygan’s Jaycees Quarryview and Evergreen Park. This venue allows for the conveniences of a city, with ample dining choices, showers, real bathrooms, and plenty of parking while allowing competitors to feel as though they are in the Wisconsin Northwoods. The course is mostly single and double track. One moment you will be concentrating on a tight singletrack in the midst of pine woods and then suddenly you will enter a spectator vantage-point where friendly cheers will pump up your adrenaline and push you forward. Sand, gravel, asphalt, mud, grass, pine needles, roots, and the famous “Sheboygan Slickrock”, this course has a bit of everything. Mixed in with a few sharp descents and the “Equalizer” are a fair number of blazing straights and swooping flow sections. Spectators will enjoy the incredible viewing areas all around the course, so bring your camera and get a shot of your favorite racers. The FatKats MTB Challenge is expected to bring an exceptional field of racers to this, the closing venue on the WORS 2015 series. Deb’s Most Amazing Outdoor Adventure has great race viewing, concessions and a prize filled raffle to follow! You do not want to miss this event! Come on Saturday for the pre-ride from 12 noon to 7 pm. There is no on-site camping, but motels in the area include: Comfort Inn (800-228-5150), Baymont Inn (800-428-3438), AmericInn (800-634-3444), and Holiday Inn Express (800-465-4329).

A variety of single and double track allows racers to test their skills over picturesque flowing technical trails. Terrain including grass, mud, asphalt, gravel, sand, “Sheboygan Slickrock”, roots, rocks, and the “Equalizer” add to the fun.
