Despite a canceled 2020 race, the Borah Epic was still able to make an annual contribution to both CAMBA and Minnesota and Wisconsin NICA leagues. As Covid-19 left its mark on nearly all 2020 events, the Borah Epic made the best of the situation by offering a marked course for registered riders. Many participants made their way to the Northwoods and “paid tribute to the trails” by riding either the full or half Epiccourses or long or short gravel Epics. And as always, the pristine single track trails and backcountry gravel of CAMBA country provided a high level of stoke, with miles of flow, big berms, and fun for all. As an added bonus, upon completion, registered riders could pick up their finisher swag at either New Moon or Riverbrook bike shops.
“We are grateful for the fact that we were still able to fundraise and provide an experience for our participants”, said Ben Welnak, Borah Epic race director. “Now it is on to 2021, and assuming we are beyond the virus, I have to believe it is going to be one heck of an Epic,” added Welnak.
“CAMBA is extremely grateful to be able to work with a partner like Borah and grateful to all the participants in the event,” said Joe Vadeboncoeur (CAMBA Board President). “Without partners like Borah Teamwear, and without riders joining CAMBA as a member, CAMBA would not be able to provide the incredible trail network that we all enjoy in CAMBA Country.” Discover all the benefits of being a CAMBA member here https://www.cambatrails.org/support/join-or-renew/.
