Due to a change in ownership at Superstition Farms – the event has been cancelled. The new ownership has a different direction for the property and cyclocross is not part of the program.
Mark and Matt looked for a new venue – one that made sense competitively, operationally, financially and date-wise.
Many thanks to Matt and Mark for all their hard work in support of the Series – could not do it without them, Joey at the U of A and Josh.
Due to a scheduling error on the part of the venue – Horse Lovers Park – http://www.azhorseloverspark.org/ – we have had to change the date for the AZ CROSS/CRANKY CROSS event.
NEW DATE – Saturday November 29.
This is a flat fast, fun course. And a great venue….

New venue – http://coconino.az.gov/index.aspx?nid=279
Fort Tuthill County Park – link above. There is some minor road construction near the entrance to the Park. Give yourself at least two hours from Phoenix metro area. Google Maps says Exit 337 from I-17 N. The Park is located across the I-17 from the airport in Flagstaff. Turn left from the exit coming north on the 1-17.
Look for the AZ CROSS arrows to get you to the venue. The race will be at the horse track – look for the grandstands. Not a ton of elevation change on this course – but it will be technical – technical meaning twisty and turny. A few long power straights – and the surface is a mix of dirt, gravel and improved horse track surface. Maybe a sand box…..
Weather looks good so far – but be prepared for anything.
Absolute Bikes will be on-site for neutral support.
Results are here:
