As many may have already read, or known from experience......The Superweek Series has been swirling the crapper over the last few years. I won't go into specifics, but this once great series has developed some major issues recently.
My old team owner (PCW Cycling, now Gear Grinder) Paul Weaver, is spearheading a group promoting a new series called Midwest Cycling Series. They already have secured the two best Superweek courses, Downer's Ave & Waukesha (Carl Zach Criterium)
I garuntee Paul and his promotion team will be putting on a top notch, professionally run event.
Here is the initial event announcement/flyer.
I will be sure to follow up with addt'l info as it is made available.
Sponsors, jump on board, this is going to be a big time event.
