We were very happy to discover that MFG #6 – The Finale at Woodland Park, was the biggest cyclocross race in the country in 2022. Thank you to the awesome PNW cyclocross community for making this happen.
Just FYI… we fixed a few errors that crept in to MFG2, MFG3 & MFG4 related to the non-binary categories not being scored separately–now all non-binary are scored separately as intended. That accounts for some of the adjustments to past points.
The MFG Awards Celebration is right around the corner! Join us on November 22 for a night to celebrate the MFG season and all of the awesome folks who have pitched in to help us relaunch MFG. Oh… and of course, we’ll have podium presentations for our season winners in the adult categories, including our team points competition.
Junior season podiums will be held following the junior races at MFG #6 – Woodland Park.
Woot! Woot! We had a blast on Sunday and hope you did too. We were tickled to discover that MFG#4 Magnuson Park was the third largest CX race in the country so far this year. Just pedaling past our friends to the south in Portland, Cross Crusade. Thank you–you made this happen.
Seattle Parks has a policy to charge for any corporate logos displayed during a permitted event (like a cyclocross race) at a Seattle Park. This applies to MFG and our logos as well as anyone at our event.
So, if you have a team tent with a corporate logo, like Taco Time or Recycled Cycles and you plan to attend either the Magnuson Park race this weekend or Woodland Park on Nov 20, you either need to pay the fee (contact us and we’ll arrange payment to the city) or cover up your logo.
Yes, we agree this feels like extortion. Please feel free to write the City of Seattle and/or the Seattle Parks Department to voice your complaint. You might dig up some contact info here: Contact Us – Parks | seattle.gov
