Things have been rapidly coming together for the May 2nd race! First, in sponsorship news, the Mount Pleasant Brewing Company, Terry's Cycle (in Alma), ProGold Lubricants, and Road I.D. have all signed on to help make the STXC races even better. These companies have stepped up to support bike racing in the area, and I would encourage you to support them! More sponsor commitments are in the works, so stay tuned...
Second, despite the recent and forthcoming rain, the tentative track for May 2nd is *mostly* high and dry; there are a few low spots but since this first race will avoid much of the singletrack trail, it will be a mostly dry track. Perfect conditions for ProGold's XTreme Lube... (samples available at the races!)
Lastly, you may start to see the race flyer at your local bike shop! Roughly 20 were mailed out earlier this week to bike shops in Mount Pleasant, Alma, Saginaw, Bay City, Midland, Clare, Grand Rapids, Ionia, Dewitt, and Lansing. Hopefully this series will have a solid turn out!
Thursday, May 2 is not that far away! Clear your evening schedule and be ready to race at 6:30 p.m.!
