The fourth annual Bear Paw Rock & Roll, the newest race in the Wisconsin Off-Road Race Series, will be held on Sunday.

Hosted by the Bear Paw Outdoor Adventure Resort in Langlade, The Rock & Roll is part of the Wisconsin Off-Road Race Series, America's largest State Mountain bike racing series. Cyclists can register on-site on Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m., and Sunday, beginning at 8 am until half hour before start.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for Langlade County to showcase all of our amenities and bolster the local economy," Scott Berry of Bear Paw said. "This is essentially a two-day event, with races coming out on Saturday to check out the terrain and the competition."

Last year, the race drew up wards of 400-plus bikers ranging from all skill levels and from all corners of the state and beyond.

Appropriately names, this course combines challenging single track that rolls and weaves around and over boulders, roots, and logs with fast hard double track and a couple of good climbs.

"This mix of terrain ensures good speed and plenty of passing room," Berry said. "While there are no long sustained climbs, this course does have repeat rollers that will add up, so don't forget your climbing legs. The event consists of a loop and the class you race determines the numbers of loops you make."

This race, while fitting the bill with its uniqueness, also engages a local volunteer base. Many clubs and organizations come out to donate their time.
