We have a couple of winners! After a fun evening at Bike Surgeon we got down to business and raffled off the Southern Illinois Fat Tire Festival pair of tickets and Kevin Ginther was our lucky winner who also happened to be present. He's excited to attend the event this October!


Next the 260 entries in the bag were thoroughly shaken and one name was pulled - Donald Westlake - winner of the Origin8 fatbike! Though we was not present we will be in contact for him to pick up the grand prize!


And a huge thank you(!!!) to all our hard-working volunteers who put in over 2,000 hours of trail time building and maintaining our region's singletrack network! We hope to see you this fall as we continue several projects and possibly begin new ones.


Lastly, we are grateful for Bike Surgeon's support of GORC throughout the years and hope you check out their family-friendly fat tire festival at Camp Ondessonk!

The successful spring trail building season has wrapped (1,900+ volunteer hours and counting!) and now it's time to celebrate. Good things come to those who wait and boy have we waited. Well, with a crazed and busy post-spring season and the full mtb racing schedule we had to find a convenient weekend for everyone to be able to attend the raffle drawing.


So let's throw a big party! GORC and Bike Surgeon have teamed up and Bike Surgeon will be hosting the raffle party at their location in Shiloh, Illinois on August 6, 2016. The celebration with food and beverages starts at 6pm and the winner of the Origin8 Crawler will be drawn along with some drawings for some swag and a runners-up drawing for a free entry into the 2016 Southern Fat Tire Festival (a pretty sweet prize!!).


See who else is going to party down!
