Yep…it’s on. Just a few short days until the season opener here in Arizona.
A couple of reminders:
1. Please register online – saves time and stress on race day. You will be able to register online right up until your race time – BUT fees generally increase on race day. make Boris happy – register online.
2. The entire Series is USA Cycling permitted/sanctioned. That means you need either an Annual racing License or purchase a “one day” license. Only certain categories are eligible for a one day license – $15.00 – most cyclocross categories require you to have an Annual License. This link explains the USA Cycling license policies:
3.The link below details the rules that govern the AZ CROSS Series:
4. Most out of Phoenix venues will be worth 1.5X the Series points. Cahes the points and be a Series Champion.
5. State Championships are NOT part of the Series – December 21 @ Crossroads Park in Gilbert.
Thank you all for you support and see you in Globe!
Clif Bar AZ CROSS #1 Flat Tire Cross is just around the corner. Good track in Globe – the City has done a great job over the years with “grooming” the course. Fewer thorns for sure..but bring that extra set of wheels. Globe is worth 1.5 times the Series Points.
AZ Cross is USA Cycling permitted – so make sure you are prepared with a racing license. Either a $15 one day (available only to CAT 4 women and CAT 5 men) – or have a current, valid Annual Racing License. Check out http://www.usacycling.org for complete licensing information.
AZ CROSS #2 is looking good – new Flagstaff venue – Fort Tuthill County Park – at the horse track. Expect a flat, technical course. Lots of turns, no grass, and a ton of dirt. Maybe a surprise or two….
Finally, thanks to all of you, and our Series partners for the support – without them AZ CROSS would not survive.
