The Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS) celebrates it's fifteenth anniversary in 2006. Founded by three individual race directors in 1992 with a mission of expanding and encouraging recreational mountain bike racing in Wisconsin and the surrounding states, WORS quickly grew into America's largest state mountain bike racing series.
in 2006, the series is made up of twelve individually-run events with category scoring in everything from pure beginning racer to professional men and women.
WORS also plans to expand the number of 'Learn to Race' clinics at its events in 2006. These clinics include instruction in bike fit and set-up, basic bike maintenance, technical riding skills, race preparation, and the basics of mountain race strategy. In 2005 WORS began a programme it calls WORS-JDT (Junior Development Team). JDT is a program for young mountain bike riders (10-16 years old) with limited or no racing experience interested in participating in WORS. The individuals selected for this programme receive a racer-loan Gary Fisher bike and entry into WORS races.
