HARRISON — Mid Michigan Community College will host its third annual Rust Shaker mountain bike race on April 14 at 10:30am. The race will be held on MMCC’s Harrison campus’ 12 mile mountain bike trail.
The event is co-sponsored by the MMCC Foundation, Ray’s Bike Shop (Midland), Terry’s Cycle (Alma), and Bicycle HQ (Midland). Proceeds will go toward MMCC student scholarships.
Racers will experience wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain. The course winds through the a nice combination of fast flowing trails, tighter technical trails, and a few short sections of hilly two tracks, making it challenging and fun for all skill levels.
The Rust Shaker is open to all riders and has multiple classes and divisions. Early registration, postmarked by April 6, is only $20, and it’s $30 the day of the race with cash payouts for the winners. Registrations are also taken online.
