RACE DATE: April 23rd, 2017.

The Yankee Springs Time Trial annually serves as the opening round of the Championship Points Series (CPS). For information on the CPS series, including how to earn points, class structure, and the series schedule, please visit their page on the MMBA Website: http://mmba.org/programs/championship-point-series/

NEW for 2017:

– The CPS Series has added an Elite/Expert Open Fatbike Category, to go along with the Sport/Beginner Open Fatbike Category! As with all E/E categories, they will race for 2 laps at the Yankee Springs Time Trial.

– The Yankee Springs race will also feature a Women’s only Fatbike Category! This will be an Open age group, run with the Sport class division. The Womens group will be scored for awards separately for the Yankee Springs TT race, but their points will be counted towards the CPS Series, as the CPS Series has agreed to score them within the Sport/Beginner Open Fatbike Category (based on their finishing time). THANK YOU CPS!
