  • Sponsor Spotlight: Rapha


    Rapha US General Manager Slate-O stopped by MFG HQ today and dropped off Rapha’s generous contribution to the MFG Series:  10 $100 Gift Certificates to be used on For those of you not familiar with Rapha, the brand is based in the UK, with USA offices in Portland, and celebrates cycling by creating products which blend style with optimum performance.

    Rapha is luxurious yet functional; stylish but not trendy; bold yet not brash.   We are super thankful for Rapha’s support of MFG. If I were a winner of the the G.C.’s, I would probably go this route:

  • Man with a Plan

    Cyclocross season is one day closer, each day we wake up!  I wanted to share this video from 2006 Master’s World CX Championships.    This is the fan of all super fans!   Talk about a man with a plan.

  • Medical Coverage at MFG Cyclocross

    There has been quite a bit on the WSBA mailing list about medical coverage for USAC, OBRA and non-sanctioned events this week. Since MFG Cyclocross will be non-sanctioned we just want to make sure everyone racing cross understands our coverage:

    $ 10,000 Maximum Medical Benefit per Claim
    $ 2,500 Accidental Death/Dismemberment Benefit per Claim
    $ 500 Deductible per Claim

    Excess Coverage
    Dental Benefit: Included in Maximum Medical Benefit

    Excess coverage means policy is secondary to an injured party primary health insurance. Policy will not cover primary insurance deductibles, co-pays, program limits, or out of network care. If injured party does not have primary care, excess coverage becomes primary.
