D&D Bicycles 2020 MiSCA Race Series

RACE #1: AUG 30 – Hickory Glen Park | Commerce, MI
Presented by Cycletherapy Bicycles, we are pleased to introduce Hickory Glen to the roster as our season opener!  A local favorite, this trail rides like a playground.  While there is not much elevation, the tight and twisty nature of “The Hick” will heavily reward strong bike handling skills.  The smaller footprint of this trail will allow for plenty of action-packed spectator opportunities!  Playground facilities will also be available. Trail Maintained by the Motor City Mountain Biking Association (MCMBA) Click here for event more details!

RACE #2: SEP 13 – Addison Oaks County Park | Leonard, MI
Presented by Fraser Bicycle, Addison Oaks returns for 2020!  Accommodating park personnel, meticulously maintained flowy and fun trails, and great facilities make this trail system a rider favorite.  New for this year, we will be coordinating with Clinton River Area Mountain Biking Association (CRAMBA) to host both our race and the MMBA CPS race during the same weekend!  (CPS race held on Saturday 9/12, MiSCA race held on Sunday) This favorite venue is a gem and we are glad to be back! Trail Maintained by CRAMBA.

RACE #3: SEP 20 – Fort Custer Recreation Area | August, MI
MiSCA is happy to return to Fort Custer in 2020! The trails at Fort Custer are unique and fun for all abilities. The area was originally farmland until the government began using it as an army training center during WWII. Some sections of trail traverse interesting historical features that are still visible today. There is plenty of room for staging and spectating. Modern restrooms and changing rooms are on-site. This trail changes directions dependent on the day of the week.  The Saturday direction will be different from the direction on race day. Staging area will be in the Eagle Lake day use area, so plan for a post-ride swim if the temperatures allow! Recreation passport required for entry. Trail Maintained by the Southwest Michigan Mountain Biking Association (SWMMBA).

RACE #5: OCT 11 – Merrell Trail, Belmont, MI
Merrell is another returning trail for 2020! 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.
