The Crusher welcomes all riders to explore U.P. gravel, two-tracks, and wilderness at their own pace. Some will come to race. Others will come for the adventure, and a chance to put a green dot next to their name. The Crusher is not your typical race experience – and the differences extend well beyond a rugged and remote course. You’ll receive a passport in place of a name plate, be required to prove you did the course by collecting checkpoint selfies along the way, and experience a race start best described as “chill”. Instead of shoving ya inside gates like cattle ,we let you roam about basecamp until the clock hits race time… when you can either take off like a hungry yeti after tourists or sit and enjoy your morning coffee until you’re ready to go.
