We’re Back!

Hey folks…it’s good to be back online!  Thank-you for your continued patience while we worked out our website kinks.  As you can see, we have switched from a .com to a .org so please update your bookmarks accordingly.


This year’s roster has been uploaded to Facebook, but will make an appearance on this site, too.  In the meantime, we have an extensive wait list so we’d appreciate a head’s up if you’re unable to participate in this year’s event.

The Chequamegon 100 is full!

We are late on getting around to posting this message.  I am happy to report that we have reached the 250 rider cap on the 2014 Chequamegon 100!  Thank you to everyone who registered and donated to CAMBA trails.  We look forward to bringing the event to you in June!  Until then, get out and ride.

Chequamegon 100 Registration is Live!

Welcome to registration for the 5th annual Chequamegon 100 metric/mile!

This year’s Chequamegon 100 is presented exclusively by Salsa Cycles!  Salsa Cycles has stepped up their sponsorship this year to cover all of our operating expenses.  Their financial support allows us to focus on providing riders with an incredible experience on the trails of the Chequamegon area. 

We expect to be announcing many more returning product sponsors in the near future. 

We would also like to thank the partners that help make Chequamegon 100 possible.  When you return to the Chequamegon area to ride, these are the people responsible for supporting all of the recreational opportunities that abound in the Northwoods.

  • CAMBA Trails – Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association is responsible for the nearly 100 miles of singletrack in the region.  Registration will be hosted by CAMBA and 100% of your required donation will go to supporting CAMBA and building trails.  A special thank you to Ron Bergin for his support. 
  • Lakewoods Resort – For over 100 years Lakewoods has been a part of recreation in the Chequamegon area.  They have been our host for the last four years.  Contact Lakewoods to make reservations for lodging for the event.  Be sure to mention that you are attending the Chequamegon 100 for special rates.  More details to come.
  • River’s Eatery – As it has for the past two years, The Chequamegon 100 will be finishing in downtown cable at River’s Eatery.  Pizza, Beverages, and a great place to hangout and tell stories around a backyard fire will be available from the great folks at River’s Eatery and the Ideal Market.  Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall…River’s Eatery is always the place to stop in the northwoods after skiing or riding!  
  • Finally, we cannot forget these organization who have supported us and continue to do so.
    • IMBA – International Mountain Bike Association
    • Cable Area Chamber of Commerce

The Chequamegon 100 will be held on June 20/21st, 2014.  There will be a 100 kilometer and 100 mile race.  The 100 kilometer race requires a $30 donation to enter and the 100 mile race requires a $55 donation to enter.  A small registration fee will be charged by the registration service.  Your donation provides you with entry to the event and supports the work that CAMBA does for Mountain Biking in the Chequamegon area.

Number pickup will be available Friday night, June 20th at Lakewoods resort, where a pasta dinner will be available.  We will have day of number pickup available at Lakewoods resort on Saturday June 21st.  More event details will follow when registration has closed.

There are 250 spots available for the event.  This is total riders for both events combined.  We expect these spots to fill quickly.  Historically, registration has only been open for 24-36 hours.

We hope to see you in June

Results

Finally, the results are here!  Sorry for taking so long to get them up, we enter our busy season at work in the fall, and this is the first time I have had to sit down and enter them.  It was way more enjoyable than getting in fist fights at the Mal Wart.

I took the liberty of entering the results exactly as they were written.  Chad, whoever you are, I am talking to you.

Cue sheets and Race Day Notes

The cue sheets are ready, and you can access them here – https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/49209047/Cues%202013.doc

The course has been modified a slight bit because we are occupying the forest on the same day as the American Birkebeiner Trail Run.  They have been great to work with, to insure our events do not conflict.  Due to this, there is a slight re-route on the 100 mile course on the way down to Hatchery Creek, we will be using Phipps Fire Lane and the Whitetail Trail instead of the Birkie Trail.

Also, due to the Birkie event there will be increased vehicle traffic on Spider Lake Road, Boedecker Road and Janet Road.  Please be aware of it.

With these changes, previous year’s GPX files are not accurate.  Please do not use them.

See you this weekend!

Transfers, Volunteers, and Weekend Details

We are just a couple of weeks away from the rescheduled 2013 Chequamegon 100!

The dog days have passed, it is time for some beautiful, crisp, fall riding.  

We continue to utter the word ‘wow’ each time we discuss or think about what this list of riders has contributed to CAMBA and IMBA to support the trails.  Just as when we started the event 4 years ago we continue to be amazed at your support for the event and now to the trails.  We could not be more pleased for the partnership with CAMBA and IMBA for this years event.  We believe that this is the beginning of a very good thing.
Sponsors:


Please welcome our title sponsors for the event: 

·         Milltown Cycles of Fairbault, MN
·         Salsa Cycles, based in Bloomington, MN. 
This year we also have several supporting sponsors coming on: 
·         Angry Catfish Bicycles and Coffee of Minneapolis, MN
Finally, we can’t thank enough the partners who have provided us with prizes, opened their doors to host us, and built trails for us to ride
·         Twin Six Clothing of Minneapolis, MN
·         DZ Nuts embrocations
·         Wolf Tooth Components
·         Osprey
·         Lakewoods Resort
·         River’s Eatery
·         Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association
·         International Mountain Bike Association
·         RJF Insurance
·         Cable Chamber of Commerce
To put this event on is a labor of love for us.  Our title and supporting sponsors provide the operating budget for our event along with great prizes.  Our partners are critical in creating the experience that we want to provide with the event along with incredible prizes. 
Transfers
Many of you have requested to transfer your entry to another racer.  We have received your requests and have updated the roster.  If you have already requested a transfer it has been processed.  If you have not sent an email to us to request a transfer you have between now and September 14th to do so.  On September 14th we will lock the roster and only cancellations will be possible.  We appreciate your patience while we have been silent on the issue.  
Cancellations
If you have sent a cancellation notice we have received it.  If you need to cancel for any reason please email us between now and race day.  The sooner the better, but we understand circumstances.  This helps us greatly with our partners for food planning and race day logistics.
Volunteers
We are in need of volunteers!  All of our crew has either added to their family, is adding to their family, or went and wrecked themselves riding a bike.  If you, or a riding a partner, are available on race weekend to volunteer please read on!  Volunteers are guaranteed entry into next year’s event.  
Course Setup:  Friday September 20th, we are in need of course marking volunteers.  Volunteers will be given all of the materials and a section of trail with a map to mark.  Historically this has been roughly 15-20 miles of trail split amongst 6-10 people.  Typically pairs go out together to get this job done, with 3-5 pairs of riders.  We will meet Friday AM @ Lakewoods Resort parking log, 10am.  Please come with bike, bug spray, a pack to hold supplies, and enough food and water for 3-4 hours.   
Race Day:
Saturday September 21st, we are in need of volunteers at the Fish Hatchery park checkpoint.  This volunteer will haul drop bags and spend the day at the checkpoint opening it up for the first riders at 10am and closing it down at 3:00pm.  This is good for someone who has a larger vehicle and a racer going the 100 mile distance.  We encourage rider support to make a day at the Fish Hatchery checkpoint, bring a picnic, bring a frisbee and have a great time while waiting for riders!
Tear Down:
Sunday September 22nd we are in need of volunteers to ride a section of course and pull down course markings.  Historically this has been done by 2-3 riders.  We have inevitably missed signs and this isn’t how we want to show up at the trails.  If you are interested in this position we will meet Sunday @10am at Lakewoods Resort to assign sections and provide course maps.  This is great for race support crews that want to get a ride in and riders who ‘just didn’t get enough’ the day before.  
If you, or a riding partner, are available to help please let us know.  We appreciate any support and time you can provide.
Weekend Details:

Friday Night Pasta Feed: Friday, September 20th, 6-8pm, Lakewoods Resort

We encourage all riders, families, and support crews to eat dinner at Lakewoods Friday night.  Perhaps we are naive believing that families and support crews would want to spend the weekend in the Northwoods, perhaps we are optimistic.  Either way, we want this to be an event that people make a weekend out of and enjoy some time spent in the Chequamegon National Forest

Pasta Feed..$12.50, per person, gratuity is included in the cost (Kids under 5 eat free, 5-10 are 1/2 price)

The Metric 100 race start will be at 8:00am.  Riders are to rally in the parking lot at Lakewoods from 7:30-7:45.  We will then cross the road and have a pre-race meeting before the start on Rock Lake Road

Fish Hatchery Checkpoint (for 100 mile riders):
Fish Hatchery will be roughly the half point of the 100 miler.  Riders will be able to have one drop bag that we will transport to/from the checkpoint and finish.  Drop bags will be provided at the pre-race meeting on Friday night to all 100 mile riders.  We will not be accepting personal bags this year, only the bag that we provide.  This is a change from last year.  Water is available at the checkpoint via a well, or you can pack it in your bag.  You may also have support crews meet up at the fish hatchery checkpint

We encourage riders to have their support crews at the checkpoint, make a day of it, make a picnic, let’s turn the park into a festival! 

Fish Hatchery Checkpoint is the only place on course that we would like support crews to meet their riders.  This is primarily for the experience and safety of the riders.
Janet Road Checkpoint
Janet Road will be roughly the half point for Metric 100 riders.  We will not have drop bags available at this checkpoint, but there will be water and snacks for those in need.  This checkpoint is intended to be a last resort aid station.  Do Not plan on needing this checkpoint as you strategize for the event.

Post-Race Party and Awards Ceremony
With a handful of sponsors comes a handful of prizes!  This year we will have some prizes and giveaways for riders in the evening.  Expect the awards ceremony to happen at 7:00 June 23rd, 2012, the day of the race.

That’s all for now folks.  Thank you for your patience.

Race Postponed to September as a result of Weather


We are disappointed to report that the Chequamegon 100 race will be rescheduled as a result of 3-5” of rain that the CAMBA Trails received last night.  
With more rain in the forecast it is unlikely that all of the trails that we were going to use will be rideable.   The race event will be rescheduled on September 21, 2013.  Lakewoods Resort is blocking rooms now and we are discussing this with our other partners.
Tonight, 06/21/2013
  • Dinner as scheduled at Lakewoods 6pm, with a  meeting at 7pm to discuss the reschedule and a group ride tomorrow.  Same price as previously communicated 
  •  Lakewoods will have entertainment at 8pm in the bar since we won’t be up early tomorrow.

Tomorrow, 6/22/2013

  • Breakfast will be from 7-10, moving slightly later to accommodate the ride at 12-.  Same price as previously communicated
  • We will  have a group ride leaving from Lakewoods at 12:00pm – noon.  We’ll end the ride at Lakewood
  • Dinner as previously planned after the ride at River’s Eatery!

Again, we are disappinted to have to reschedule the event, but also recognize that we can’t change the weather.  3-5″ of rain isn’t something we could have planned for.  Severely damaging the trails isn’t something we want to do.  Some of the trails would hold up to the riding, some wouldn’t.

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.  We look forward to riding with you tomorrow and putting on the race this September with all of our sponsors and partners.
