Midwest Cycling Series Dates and Executive Director Announced;
Historic Downer Avenue Event Part of Series

MILWAUKEE, WI – December 3, 2008 – Jack Hirt, former executive director of the Bike Federation of Wisconsin (BFW), has been named Midwest Cycling Series Executive Director by founders of the new professional cycling series, which will showcase 10 Wisconsin cities in 11 days, June 18-28, 2009.


Midwest Cycling Series, LLC, organizers of the Midwest Cycling Series, comprises five avid cyclists and successful entrepreneurs including U.S. Cycling Team Olympian and Team Sports, Inc. President Tom Schuler, Olympic Road Race Trials qualifier and former Nova Cycle Sports Foundation President Bill Ochowicz, Milwaukee Junior Cycling Team co-Executive Director Bill Koch, National Senior Olympics competitor Jim Michler, and Paul Weaver, founder of one of Wisconsin's longest running multi-sport teams.


Says Schuler of Hirt's appointment, "Jack brings his competitive cycling experience as well as his business acumen and passion for making a difference in the cycling world and local communities. He is a proven leader who will work with me and my partners as well as local race directors and volunteer crews to catapult what began a couple years back as a successful 2-day series to the professionally-produced 10-day Midwest Cycling Series in 2009 featuring top purses in best-of-class venues."


Hirt recently stepped down from his role as BFW Executive Director to lead and manage a new statewide BFW advocacy initiative aimed at making Wisconsin the most bicycle-friendly state in the U.S. by working with officials at the local, regional and national levels to institute stronger bike-friendly laws and law enforcement.


"Jack has a stellar reputation of tirelessly promoting cycling and cyclist rights in the state," says Ochowicz. "He shares our goal of promoting cycling as a healthy and environmentally-friendly lifestyle, and with the new Midwest Cycling Series, the sport, athletes, host cities, sponsors and spectators all benefit…Jack will see to it; he gets the big picture."


Continues Ochowicz, "We will work with our host cities, athletes and sponsors to create fun, safe, family-friendly race days which will include a well-managed schedule of races across all categories, live entertainment and family activities."


The complete line-up of race cities, along with major sponsors, will be announced in early 2009; however, the historic Downer Avenue bike race in Milwaukee is a confirmed stop on the Midwest Cycling Series as are the Wisconsin cities of Fond du Lac, Manitowoc and Sheboygan.


Endorsed and supported by the Wisconsin Cycling Association and United States Cycling Federation, Midwest Cycling Series updates will be posted on www.midwestcyclingseries.com
