We've had a blast watching the West Michigan Coyotes this summer! Central District Cyclery is working with West Michigan Riders and Breakaway Bicycles to support this composite group of shredders from all over the West Michigan area.
The squad is comprised of kids ranging from 6th to 12th grade with an interest in taking on the MiSCA MTB Series. The most recent stop was just north of Grand Rapids at Cannonsburg, where the Coyotes had 15 riders take on a tough course and 95-degree temperatures to take in a whole slew of podiums and plenty of smiles.
Our riders don't just hop in for races. The team has a dedicated group of parents and volunteers that host practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays at a variety of local trails that help develop a full skillset for our racers. Fitness, technical skill, and basic maintenance and repairs all add up to the team's agenda. The ability to take any terrain is important, with the MiSCA calendar taking racers all over the state.
The final MiSCA race of the year is October 8 at Brighton, and we're excited to see how the Coyotes perform. They have a few more weeks of practice and one big race to cap off an exciting season.
