Finish the 2018 BP MS 150 at Circuit of the Americas (COTA)!

Updated | January 22, 2018

New to the 2018 BP MS 150 is the finish line at Circuit of The Americas (COTA). Located outside of downtown Austin, Circuit of the Americas has hosted some of the largest names and events in racing, action sports, and music since 2012. This change in venue is due to development of the Texas Capitol Complex in downtown Austin. Where we end the ride is only one stop along our way to the ultimate finish line – a world free of MS. We are committed to giving cyclists, volunteers, and supporters the incredible experience they've come to expect, and look forward to continuing the great Houston-to-Austin ride tradition!
