ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – The Minnesota Cycling Association’s 2023 Race Series held a mountain bike race at Rochester’s Gamehaven Scout Reservation in Rochester this weekend.

Saturday’s races were for middle school athletes from 6th to 8th grade. Sunday’s event was for high school students with Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity athletes racing.
