MSG Has A BIG Announcement!

ShiftWe were planning on making a BIG announcement a little later (there is a special prize in the works), but we couldn’t wait any longer! Introducing our series feature sponsor “New Belgium Brewing”! New Belgium will be providing those unique and extremely tasty brews you love at select series races this season! New Belgium is a proven supporter of cycling and bicycle racing, so show New Belgium some love! Everything is better with NBB! New Belgium is distributed in the MSG racing area, by, Holston Distributing. Stay tuned for more New Belgium updates.

Industry 9 Brings High Quality Components to MSG!

What makes the wheels on the bike go round and round? Well I’ll give you a hint, their initials are Industry 9! We are very happy to have I9 as an MSG sponsor for the first time. I9 makes only the highest quality wheels and hubs, and they are a local business. Keep checking back for an I9 Announcement a little later on!

Past and Present Sponsors

I was updating the website to reflect the 2013 sponsors of the MSG Series and was browsing the database table that listed past sponsors of our series. There maybe ones that aren’t on this list, but without all of these folks, we wouldn’t have made it 10 years. Big, big thanks goes out to each of these fine companies for contributing to our fun over the years. These are in no particular order….
