Course Description:

Classic Cyclocross course with two sets of barriers and variable terrain including grass, pavement, and gravel. The 2-3 KM closed course makes it great for spectators. Course will be flowing and difficult, making use of natural climbs / run-ups, off cambers sections, and endless cornering. Look for some wide open power sections and enough technical riding to make it a true crosser’s course. RAIN OR SHINE EVENT, but promoter reserves the right to cancel for damaging or dangerous conditions.

Prizes:

All Categories are racing for medals and/or merchandise at least 5 spots deep, except for Masters 35+, Elite Men, and Women who are racing for cash and glory!
