Riders racing two categories will be assigned separate bib numbers and chips.

If you have had any issues with scoring at the last two MFG Cyclocross races please stop by Registration on Sunday to confirm we have the correct timing chip number for you.

MFG Dress the Manneken Pis Contest

Words by Nat Pellman, GM at Brouwer’s Cafe:

Brouwer’s has been a sponsor of MFG cyclocross since it started.  We’ve always wanted you to have fun winning prizes, so our promotions over the years have included everything from “Beat the Hodala Rider” to a jersey for the SSers, and hopefully you’ve enjoyed them!

This year we’ve decided to make our contest more team-oriented! We’d also like to see more of your smiling faces down here at Brouwer’s! So here’s the idea that’s been tossed around and agreed on – “Dress the Manneken Pis”. What?!!

Manneken Pis is a sculpture in Brussels, depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain’s basin. It was designed by Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the Elder and put in place in 1618. And yes, we have our very own Manneken Pis fountain here at Brouwer’s! He gets dressed up for many of our events and welcomes folks at the front entry.

So during the week(s) leading up to each MFG race, teams or individuals are encouraged to “dress” our Manneken Pis, take a photo, upload it to Instagram, and tag the post with  #Brouwers @brouwerscafe #MFG @mfgcross and #Mannyp @brouwersmannyp  (as he’s affectionately called here). You can dress him however you like, the more creative the better! Search “manneken pis costumes” on the interweb and you’ll get the idea.

The prize will be a $50 gift certificate to Brouwer’s, and we will announce a winner each Friday morning before the race weekend, on both MFG and Brouwers social media.

Here are a few rules:

  • When you arrive at Brouwer’s, check-in with the Manager on duty.
  • Avoid coming on Friday or Saturday nights. We are usually really busy and want to avoid giving the general public the idea they can mess with him.
  • Come for a drink or something to eat.
  • Mannyp is about 2 feet tall and can’t be picked up or moved.
  • Absolutely No stickers or painting please.  Aka leave him as you found him!
  • Also avoid touching or dropping anything into the water below him.

Win 50% Off Season Pass

By | 2019, Cyclocross

The day of the first MFG Cyclocross race ever, 9/13/2009, the NPR Sunday Puzzle was a game called “Pie Divided”. The gist of the game is a hint is given to a two-word phrase where the first word starts with “pi” and the second work ends in “e”. For instance: “what powers your car?”, “piston engine”. So let’s go all the way back to the first photoset posted from that race on Flickr to find a something in the pictures that meets the terms of “Pie Divided”. Here is a link to the photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mfgcyclocross/albums/72157622362916100.

Find the phrase (or phrases) we are looking for and you got yourself a 50% off discount code for a Season Pass that can be purchased here: https://www.webscorer.com/register?raceid=185301&owner=1.

Enter your guess as with no spaces and all lowercase (ex. pistonengine) into the discount code box on checkout to see if you found the winning phrase.


There will be five lucky winners. Game ends next Tuesday, 8/27. Good luck.

MFG Cyclocross 10th Anniversary is Coming

By | 2019, Cyclocross

We won’t bombard you with #crossiscoming banter, but we are thrilled to celebrate our 10th Anniversary this year.   All of us at MFG Cyclocross (Terry, Zac, Rich, Robert, and the rest of our staff) want to take a minute to thank all of you for coming out and participating in our events, and spending the last decade with us.   Your enthusiasm, your athleticism, and your willingness to have a day of fun has made this adventure all worthwhile.

Sullivan Park as we celebrate the Tacko Fall Buffet.   Finally, you will have the ability to ride many of the new lines for the 2019 Cyclocross National Championships at MFG #4 at Ft. Steilacoom Park.  Our race days are presented by Planet Box, MIIR, Nuun Hydration, Rapha Seattle, and Sub Pop Records.  Our series sponsors include Full Speed Ahead, Brouwers Cafe, and The Cycling House.  

You can still register for a series pass and receive 6 races for the price of 5 and also be entered to win prizes generously donated by Rapha Seattle.

See you all on September 8th at Lake Sammamish GP!

51 Weeks!

By | #2019CXNATS, 2018, Cyclocross

We are 51 weeks away from hosting the 2019 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Lakewood, WA at Fort Steilacoom Park. The planning has already started, we have designed and tested some core elements and flow lines to the course, and the excitement level is already simmering. While the bulk responsibility to pull this event off lies with Tacoma Sports Commission and MFG Cyclocross, we will need tremendous support from our local cyclocross community for the nation to fully understand how phenomenal the scene is here in the Pacific Northwest. To that end, here is the call-out for the ways you can support the 2019 US Cyclocross National Championships from December 5th to 17th, 2019 :

Generally:

  • Volunteer at least one day during the week of setup, racing or tear-down.
  • Race a non-championship and/or championship event during the week. We want to show the nation the strength of our racing participation.
  • Spectate as you can during the week but please come out in big numbers for the championships races on Sunday, December 15th. We need your enthusiasm on course and want massive energy pushing the riders and coming through the live-stream. Bring at least three non-cyclocross racing friends / family to the races on Sunday!
  • If we need to do some fundraising to support course improvements understand the need is real and make a small contribution as you can.

Specifically:

Staffing:

  • Event Coordinator – We are looking for help managing and planning non-racing events during the week.
  • Volunteer Recruiter / Coordinator – We are looking for a person to recruit and allocate volunteers to needed positions leading up to the event. This person will also communicate with volunteers up to their work day. We have a Volunteer Director on board who will work with volunteers at the venue to insure assignments are executed properly.
  • Junior Party Planner – We are looking for an individual to own the Saturday night party for Junior racers.

In-Kind Support:

  • Lumber for two flyover bridges
  • Labor to build two flyover bridges
  • Sand for sandpit
  • Lumber for sandpit sides
  • Loan of high speed copiers
  • Loan of ATV for medical support
  • Loan of Gator with bed or ATV with bed for course setup and maintenance
  • Loan of Jobsite Offices for Staff Office and Live-Stream Production Room
  • Loan of RV for Staff Offices (if above not available)
  • Loan of 20′ x 20′ event tents with sides
  • Loan of Fire Pits (Mike and Bryne Black!)
  • Donation of Fire Wood

Non-Racing Events:

  • Have ideas for non-racing events during the week? Make suggestions.
  • Want to put on a non-racing event let us know.

We have an amazing cyclocross community. All together we can make the 2019 US Cyclocross Championships a special week in our community’s history.

So with that>>>The WSBA Cyclocross championships are Sunday December 2nd at Fort Steilacoom Park! Junior, Senior & Master categories will be competing for WSBA Cyclocross championship jerseys & medals.

Thanks to support from WSBA partners Absolute Mortgage and JLVelo, the category winners at every WSBA championship race this year will be awarded a champion’s jersey at the race finish.
