MMCC Rust Shaker Mountain Bike Race
SAVE-THE-DATE! Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 10:30AM
22 Rust Shaker Racers Are Now Registered!
Over 120 riders enjoyed the sixth annual Rust Shaker in 2015 at the Mid Michigan Community College Harrison Campus on one of Michigan's best mountain bike trails. Rust Shaker racers can choose from 15 categories with many offering cash prizes. Participants also receive a pizza lunch and the chance to win great giveaways after the race!
The course is set in a beautiful forest with massive trees and rolling hills. This trail sports some long, gentle climbs (a few not so gentle) and holds up well to rain. A nice combination of mostly fast flowing trails and some tighter technical trails, with a couple short sections of hilly two tracks. The course will be about 9 miles (1 lap) for the beginner level, about 13 miles (1 lap) for the sport level and about 25 miles (2 laps) for the expert level. The race will begin with a wave start for all classes (1 minute between each wave) on a road roll-out which will take the racers onto the mostly single track course.
A portion of the proceeds from this event benefit MMCC student scholarships and trail maintenance.
