talking to kevin and he mentioned the amateur classes,75 mile loop on saturday morning with the race starting right in downtown munising and the city is even building a 120 track right downtown for the kids to run saturday at 3p.m. sounds like a great reason to visit munising one more time this season.

This race is shaping up to be the best x-country race we have seen in a very long time.Its just what we needed to kick start this sport again.

Where and what will the racing surface primarily consist of? Is it all out on the bay?

Anyone got tips on setup?

call 1-906-387-5300 and talk to kevin kolbus as he is laying out the course but from what I understand the race starts in munising goes out and around grand island and then uses mainly old forestry roads that are unplowed and should get rough. 75 mile loops with pro classes running two laps friday and two laps saturday.

Planning on running eihter Masters or Pro 440.

I Just want to go have fun and be there to see Corey and the rest of the USCC pro guys put on a show.

Should be an awesome mix of terrain and snow conditions, these guys are gonna love it!

And I hope some MIchigan XC fans are there to see it all.

there is not a such thing as a pro 440 class in the uscc. It would be considered more like semi pro class.
