The SNAP FITNESS Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross & 5K will kick the 2016 Michigan 'CX season into a roar on Saturday, September 10! (First Saturday after Labor Day)

Description

The Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross grew out of five years of racing at the Ithaca Grand Prix of Cyclocross in Woodland City Park. Due to the dramatic expansion of this race since its inception in 2007, it was necessary to relocate this classic race. Moving forward, the Alma GP will be held at the site of the former Alma airport off of Bridge Street, behind the Alma Transportation Center. 

As a local resident I am very happy to promote cyclocross within Alma's city limits, just over one mile from the growing downtown. The Alma GP is on a site ripe for developing a truly European-style cyclocross course. The City of Alma now features a singletrack mountain bike trail, a fantastic stretch of rail trail, and what will be the largest cyclocross race in the state of Michigan. I'm proud to bring the Alma GP to town.

Thanks for coming along for the ride...it's going to be a blast.
