Midwest Racing: WMSR Stage Race
The West Michigan Stage Race has a new weekend for 2012. This second annual event is scheduled for May 19 and 20, 2012. Based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, this event will combine three of the most common forms of bicycle road racing, time trial, criterium, and road racing. Participants will compete for individual stage prizes as well as an overall general classification (GC) winner. The GC winner will be determined by the lowest overall time upon the completion of the three stages.

Stage One Riders will race against the clock in a 7.4 mile individual time trial. Saturday May 19th, 2012.

Stage Two A short .9 mile loop will be the canvas for a fun and fast spectator friendly environment where racers will compete for 20-60 minutes depending on ability. Saturday May 19th, 2012.

Stage Three This Queen stage will send the racers out on a 30 mile open course through varying terrain. Upon the completion of the 30-90 mile road race the overall winner will be determined and crowned. Sunday May 20th, 2012.

With $8,000 in a cash prize purse this event will bring recreational racers and professionals alike. This unique form of racing will provide athletes the opportunity to get to know the other racers in their category. 2011 brought half of its racers from outside of Grand Rapids and with a larger prize list this amazing event is expected to bring in even more.
