Course Description

Hills, sand, more hills, more sand. This venue demands a lot of muscle and technique. Numerous tricky turns with multiple lines to choose from. The sand is navigable to those with the speed and technique to master it. You might make up time on the hills, lose it in the sand and downhill…a very entertaining course.

#protip by Steve Fisher – “Break this one into small sections and attack each one with focus. Stay light on the front wheel through the sand pits and attack each climb.”

Tyler Smith aka Tall Tyler

Each season we have raced along side Silver Lake at MFG #3 we have recognized someone who inspires us. This year that person is Tall Tyler (Tyler Smith). He has been a supporter of MFG Cyclocross since our first season in 2009 as both a racer and a devoted sponsor. But most importantly it is Tyler’s big smile and the pure joy he takes from cyclocross that inspires us to honor him this season. He is the type of person that is the foundation of our awesome cyclocross community in the PNW.
