CORBA Events

Part of CORBA’s mission is to create opportunities for mountain bikers in the Chippewa Valley to ride and race the great trails our volunteers build.  Want to hammer against other racers?  Want to push yourself to a PR?  Want to just get out and soak in the singletrack with a fun group of riders?  We’ve got you covered.

Red Flint Firecracker 2022

Virtual: June 24 – July 1
In Person: July 2

The Red Flint Firecracker is going hybrid again for 2022. Participants will have the option once again to choose their day, time, events, and weather over the 9 day event. The in-person event will be held on Saturday, July 2nd for the mountain bike and trail run races!

There will be three activities to choose from (Mountain Bike Race, Trail Run Race, and Road Ride), and each of those will have a number of options. You can do one event, do all of the events, or anything in between. You can also create your own off-site (not eligible for cash awards) if you cannot get to Eau Claire.

Sadistic Century

A fun and challenging 100 mile, 100 km and 60 km bicycling ride in Western Wisconsin. Short drive from Madison and Twin Cities Area. August 22nd, 2022.

Fall Back Blast Trail Run

October 29 – November 5, 2022

The Fall Back Blast is continuing the hybrid model for 2022. Participants will have the option once again to choose their day, time, events, and weather over the 7 day event. BUT for 2022, there will be a new distance: marathon! The in-person option will happen Saturday, November 5th!

There will be five distance events to choose from. You can do one distance, do all of the distances, or anything in between during the virtual week. You can also create your own off-site course if you cannot get to Eau Claire. Of course, you’ll have to choose your distance for the in-person race.

Powder Keg Fat-Bike and Snowshoe and Ski Races

To heck with hibernation.  Winter is as good a time as any to get out and enjoy the trails, and enjoy them you will at the Powder Keg.  You never know what to expect with the weather at this one, but fun is always in the forecast.

Monday Night Group Recreation (MNGR)

Voluntary, year round recreation for anyone to ride, run, hike, snowshoe, fat bike, or ski depending on the season. Leaves from the Expo Entrance to Lowes Creek County Park at 6pm (sometimes earlier during late fall). Helmets required for riders and CORBA assumes no risk.
