Three scenic passes

If you skate the 39-mile Challenge (the pro race), you get three scenic loops through the gorgeous North Woods.

Women's cliffhanger

Here's the situation: Bont's Debbie Rice needs only one point to win NROC's women's division. But she's sick this week and, besides, she hates ultra-marathons.

If she doesn't make it to Hayward, Rebecca George, second in last year's Challenge, could roll away with the NROC title.

Fishy beer

The free beer at the post-race lunch (also free) is produced by the Muskie Capital Brewery. ... How often do you get to drink a beer named after a fish?

Art trophies

Yep. They've got some monster muskies around here. But don't expect to land one without a guide. (Hayward guides on Google)
