Mississippi Kids Cyclocross Program: Details covered during the orientation


Hello. Thank you to those who attended our orientations during the past weeks. I have included the details we covered with hyperlinks to the registration page and events/races. Registration for all events is open, please take a minute to register. Also, please hold off on getting a USA Cycling License as in September they will prorate the 2018 with the 2019 and you won’t need to get one for next year. I’ll share details shortly.

Also, an email will be sent once a week on Sundays, with reminders and details covered during the Saturday session.

Reminder: The program starts on Saturday, September 1st at 10am. We will be meeting at Freedom Ridge Park.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Healthy Regards,

Coach Ro
