Welcome to the Cuyuna Crusher! 

Hosted by the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce and the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series, the Cuyuna Crusher is an experience like none other! The Crusher takes place in the Mahnomen Unit of the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area where mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels along with their loved ones will join us for the 8th Annual Cuyuna Crusher held on Sunday August 27th, 2023. 

Bring your family and enjoy all that the Cuyuna Lakes Area has to offer! Enjoy the many lakes and mine pits the area has to offer, do some shopping, have some delectable bites and beverages, rest your heads in one of our many great lodging options and enjoy the scenery of the Cuyuna Lakes! You will not regret the chance to explore the great Cuyuna Lakes Area while enjoying some of the best mountain bike trails in Minnesota! 

Having the opportunity to have your business in the forefront of one of the biggest biking events of the year in Minnesota is great exposure, with an estimated 1000 outdoor enthusiasts in attendance at the CCSRA Rally Center on the day of the race. It also allows your branding to be shared throughout the Cuyuna Lakes Community, which hosts 100,000 visitors each year on our renowned trails. Many sponsorship levels are available, along with day of participation opportunities to share what your business has to offer! Let's put your company in the forefront of this event by becoming a sponsor today!
