Hello Parents/Supporters. We had a wonderful turnout yesterday as we kicked-off our 2018 Mississippi Cyclocross Project, our free curriculum based cycling program. During the session we covered the following important area.
Bike & helmet inspection:
- Check Saddle hight and make sure bike in good conditions.
- Kids are wearing helmet properly (required in order to participate)
- Kids are wearing closed shoes (required in order to participate)
- Proper tire inflation.
Important items covered for week two.

Race dates are: September 6th, September 13th, September 20th & September 27th. All kids races are FREE of charge, however we ask parents to register them early via the online registration website.
Adults can participate as well, this is how we off-set the cost of facilitating these sanction events. All details available at http://mscxcup.com/weekday-cyclocross-series.
