Below is a list of the USA Cycling road and mountain bike championship events for the State of Michigan. In this list you will find links to each race as well as the category/age group breakdown for medals. The top three riders in each category will recieve a commemorative medal. The first rider in each category will have the option to buy a commemorative jersey, t-shirt, or cycling cap. Please, mark your calendars and plan to attend!
For all you juniors out there, Project J is offering five grants of $300 to help cover costs associated with travel to Nationals and/or Worlds. Check it out! Or if you know a Michigan Youth who could use this.... pass it on!
Please note that this is only open to Michigan residents. A big thank you to Project J for providing this opportunity!!! Project J is a community organization founded to develop the skills of amateur athletes, while creating an opportunity for personal growth, mentoring, and developing citizenship behaviors. By participating in local, regional and national races, we believe juniors will increase their skills and self-confidence.
As part of our series of exclusive interviews of Michigan riders who have reached the major leagues, we are happy to introduce you to Allie Dragoo: Allie is one of the fresh faces in cycling today. At first glance, you may think she came out of nowhere since she didn’t race much on the road in Michigan, but she’s paid many dues unseen by road cycling fans. The 26-year-old Grand Rapids native is currently racing for Team Twenty16 RideBiker p/b ShoAir Women’s Professional Cycling Team. She graciously took the time to speak to us recently.
