MBC Racing Team Places Well in Ore to Shore

The Ore to Shore mountain bike race in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is one of the most popular point-to-point races in the country. The Hard Rock version is 48 miles of challenging fire roads, single track, and steep sandy descents. 

For those of you who are curious, here's a helmet cam video of the Soft Rock distance.

Several Milwaukee Bicycle Company Race Team members made the trip up north and had great results. We're even on the front page of the Ore website!
