WHAT A GREAT DAY at Mullets !!

The Midstate Racing and BIKEIOWA Racing Teams set up a GREAT 3/4 mile course using Mullets green space. Tight and twisty was the name of the game.

Some opted for the time-saving "shortcut" where you had to eat various object before continuing else you could ride a further distance and skip the "objects"...
