Cuyuna's World Famous Red Dirt Flow Trails are in great shape!

More than 500 mountain bikers, their friends and families will come to Crosby the weekend of Aug. 20-21 for the Annual Cuyuna Crusher Race sponsored by the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber and the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series. The Cuyuna Crusher takes place in the Mahnomen Unit of the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. 

Don't just drive into town for the day on Sunday, Aug. 21—we invite you to the Cuyuna Lakes to make a weekend of it. Bring your family and enjoy swimming, diving, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding in our crystal clear mine lakes.  You will not regret the chance to explore our great town and get a quality pre-ride to prepare for your race. Visit our local businesses that sponsor the Crusher, without them we couldn’t do what we do!

Interested in Volunteering? 
We appreciate your willingness to help with this great community event. 

Volunteers are needed for many different positions to help make the event a success. Large group help is an option for community groups, scout troop or sports teams. We can't host this event without volunteers, and we thank you in advance for signing up!

No experience with bike races? That's okay! We have lots of positions that require zero knowledge of the sport. Positions include check-in, trail stewards, directing traffic, packet pick-up, kids race, etc. 

In exchange for your time, we'll be providing volunteers with a free T-shirt and a free meal and/or refreshments during your shift! Please join us at the Cuyuna Brewing Company during the Crusher Happy Hour on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 4-8 p.m. to pick up your shirt, instructions, and goodie bag!
