It might not take epic brawn to win the 2012 Cuyuna Lakes MTB Festival Kryptonite Hill Climb Challenge, but it will take a willingness for someone to live up to the words: “a timed sprint to the top of Miner’s Mountain.”
Sprint? Miner’s Mountain? This is going to be a great race to participate in and to watch! (Cowbells are highly encouraged!)
When it came to creating a new event for the 2012 MTB Festival, the hill climb was a unanimous decision. Our trail Crusher is famous, or infamous, depending on how you look at it. You start on Easy Street, you transition to Crusher, then it starts going up.
And up, then up, then you think you are there, but no, up, up, up again, then you think you must be finished, and wait, another up, one more up, really another up, then you are there, no, another up!
We here in the Cuyuna Lakes are darn proud of Crusher, it’s our badge of honor. Since we announced the Kryptonite Hill Climb Challenge a few weeks back the local Cuyuna Lakes kids have been training, we advise you show up ready to rip!
