Thanks for a great season!

Another great cyclocross season in the books – thank you all for your support and hard work over the course of the season. Great participation from all categories and abilities – exciting to see as many super-fast juniors out there as we did. Many thanks to all of our partners – CLIF Bar, SRAM and PRO GOLD, Bicycle Ranch, Flat Tire, Bicycles of Phoenix, Absolute Bikes, TRIBE Multisport.

Special thanks to Mark and Matt, CrankCross boys do such a  great job!  Joey – the brains and the leader behind the U of A Cycling team for hosting a two weekend in Tucson – one of which was a classic Belgian cyclocross weekend.

Yes, we are set for 2015 – and even have some dates:
