Juniors race free in MAC

Thanks to increased sponsorship, the U19 Junior category will be able to race free of charge if they pre-enter MAC events in 2007. The sponsorship of is providing extra incentive for juniors to take to the dirt. "We want to have more courageous kids put down their video games and come out to see what ‘cross is all about," says MAC Technical Director Kelly Cline. "We want kids to feel the cameraderie, meet skilled racers, get dirty -- and have fun!"

Any U19 Junior rider, male and female, who pre-enters the specific " Junior class" at any 2007 MAC race will have their entry fee paid by Juniors who wait to register on race day will, however, still be responsible for the standard $10 late registration surcharge. According to J.D. Bilodeau, owner of supaFan's parent company Pioneer Event Productions, "Hopefully, eliminating the entry fee removes one more obstacle in getting riders to come out to the races. And, because the MAC has some of the most supportive racers and exciting racing in the country, we hope that once juniors try ‘cross, they'll be hooked."
