Update on Tour of Michaywe event schedule

Wed, Dec  20, 2017 - By Andy Liebner

We've made some final changes to the Michaywe' events and many people were asking about it at the Forbush race. Over two day, skiers will do four events that are not duplicated at other races, things like a pursuit and a skills course.

Racers must do ALL events to receive Michigan Cup points.
