Cuyuna's World Famous Red Dirt Flow Trails are in great shape!
Mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels along with their friends and families are invited to Crosby the weekend of Aug. 19-21 for the 9th 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 we invite you to the Cuyuna Lakes Area 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 and thank our local businesses that sponsor the Crusher, without them we couldn’t continue having successful events!
Cuyuna Crusher Parking
Vehicle Permits are Required in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area (including the day of the race)
Vehicle permits can be purchased:
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND you purchase your permit IN ADVANCE to avoid congestion getting into the recreation area.
Be sure your permit is visible in your windshield when you park.
Your purchased permit helps maintain and improve the natural resources, facilities and education and outreach programs that make Minnesota's state parks among the best in the nation.
*Specific course elements are subject to change based on course conditions on race day and discretion of the race director and property owner.
Crusher course for Kids Comp, Citizen
Download or follow the course maps above for pre-riding PRIOR TO race day. (Note that courses will be taped-off only on race day and courses are NOT open for pre-riding on race day.)
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, 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 trail stewards, first aid, floaters, water station, traffic support, parking and clean up crew.
In exchange for your time, we'll be providing volunteers with a free T-shirt and/or refreshments during your shift!
We appreciate your willingness to help with this great community event.
