Mountain bike races a growing success

HARRISON — Mid Michigan Community College hosted its third annual Rust Shaker mountain bike race on April 14. A record 116 racers competed.

The race was held on MMCC’s Harrison campus’ nearly 15 mile mountain bike trail.   

Co-sponsored by the MMCC Foundation, Ray’s Bike Shop (Midland), Terry’s Cycle (Alma), and Bicycle HQ (Midland), proceeds from the race benefit MMCC student scholarships.

MMCC’s bike and walking trails are open to the public. Bike riders of all skill levels can enjoy wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain.

MMCC’s summer mountain bike race, the Sweat Shaker, will be held on June 30.  This race has been newly added to the Michigan Mountain Biking Association Championship Point Series. As a result, the college expects a large turnout of racers and tough competition.
