Mid Michigan Community College is hosting its 6th annual Sweat Shaker Mountain Bike Race on June 27 on the Harrison campus’ bike trails. The race will begin at 10 a.m..

The Sweat Shaker has been added to the Michigan Mountain Biking Association Championship Point Series. The college expects a large turnout of racers and tough competition as a result.

The MMCC Foundation is sponsoring the race, with proceeds benefiting the Lakers’ athletic program.Sweat Shaker 2012

Racers will experience wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain. The course winds through a 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 Sweat Shaker is open to all riders and has multiple classes and divisions. Early registration, postmarked by June 19 or online until June 26, is $40. Riders can register on the day of the event for an additional $5.

To learn more about the mountain bike trails or races at MMCC, call Tiffani Lewis at (989) 386-6651 or visit midmich.edu/sweatshaker. Registration forms also are available online.
