Youth Cup Races

The Kids of Mud race series and the MCA Cup events for kids have been merged into one “Youth Cup Series”. TheYouth Cup Events will be taking place, for the most part, the day before each cup race.  Although we attempted to have the races at the same location, we were unable to accomplish that for 2011.

 The Youth Cup races are open to all Kids of Mud participants (included in program fee) along with all other U17 sport riders in Manitoba. There will be a minimal race fee for those not in the KOM program. In order to be included in the cup series, each participant must race 3 of the 4 scheduled races and points will be allocated to each racer based on finish time. A total of the points acquired will be used to determine the ‘Cup Winner’. If there is a tie in points, total race times that participants raced against each other will be added up to determine the lowest time.

The other mountain bike races in MB this year, may or may not have a kid’s portion for their race – that is up to the organizer. Those kids’ races will not have any cup points available. Please contact each race organizer for more details.

Thank You,

Moni Robertson, MCA KOM Chair
