READ THE RACE #3 MISCA UPDATE NEWSLETTER FOR DETAILED/UPDATED INFORMATION

Race #3 of the D&D Bicycles 2021 MiSCA Race Series.
MERRELL TRAIL | ROCKFORD, MI

A machine-built trail that was built specifically with mountain bikers in mind, this trail flows and takes you for a fun ride, while still introducing some technical challenges in the form of roots and rocks. Merrell alternates direction depending on the day, so please plan your pre-rides accordingly. Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday follow red Arrows in a counter-clockwise direction. Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday follow yellow arrows in a clockwise direction. The trail will flow in race direction on Saturday, September 18th for pre-rides and course setup. Parking and main staging area will be out of Premier Park and the West Michigan Sports complex off of Ten Mile Rd in Rockford.

CAMPING: While camping is not available at the sports complex, Wabasis Lake Campground is located 15 miles east of the Merrell Trail. Reserve online at https://web1.vermontsystems.com/wbwsc/mikentctywt.wsc/search.html?module=RN&display=graphical

These are student-only races for Elementary, Middle, and High School-ages. No team, no problem – students can participate as individuals. To be eligible to race, students must be registered in SportsSignUp Play. Additionally, the rider will register for the races they plan to participate in.
