MMCC Sweat Shaker Mountain Bike Race to be held June 30

Mid Michigan Community College is hosting their third annual Sweat Shaker Mountain Bike Race on June 30 on the Harrison campus bike trails beginning at 10 a.m.

The event is open to all riders and has multiple classes and divisions. Early registration, postmarked by June 22 or online until June 29, is $30 for adults and $20 for ages 14 and under. Racers can register on the day of the event for an extra $10.

Racers will experience wooded and hilly trails, long and gentle climbs, as well as steep, rough terrain. The course features fast-flowing trails, tighter technical trails, and short sections of hilly two-tracks. The first set of races will begin at 10 a.m. with elite/expert races beginning at 1 p.m.

The Sweat Shaker has been newly added to the Michigan Mountain Biking Association Championship Point Series.

The MMCC Foundation is sponsoring the event. Proceeds go to the Lakers’ athletic program.
