Flat Tire Cross p/b Flat Tire Bikes

Here we go – about two weeks to the season opener here in Arizona. The traditional host to the first round of the Series, Globe is one of the “best”  courses – a bit of technical, a whole bunch of power sections, some climbing, and a great mix of dirt and grass.

Race venue here.

The CrankyCross crew does such a great job – with awesome support from Flat Tire Bikes. Race day schedule is posted online on the registration page. Make note of the new categories for the 2016 season. We have added additional junior category, and Master Women categories.

Yes, a USA Cycling racing license is required – either a one day (for some categories), or an annual racing license. Purchase either license in advance and save time on-site. Purchase USA Cycling licenses here.

Many thanks to long-time Series Sponsor CLIF Bar – there will be samples at registration, and a few winner’s awards.

YUMA CX added!

Part of our goal several years ago when we began to manage the Series, was to bring the cyclocross culture to more folks in Arizona. Over the years we have added Flagstaff, new venues in Tucson, and now YUMA – yes, YUMA. Triple Series points will be offered and a special separate First Timer  Juniors, Men’s and Women’s categories are on the schedule.

Many thanks to the community of Yuma, and Sonoran Cycles.

Saturday October 22 Gateway Park Yuma, AZ*

*USAC Permit and City of Yuma Permit pending.

Series Information updated

We have expanded categories for the 2016 season – additional women’s, juniors, and masters race opportunities. Check it out in detail on the Series Information page.

All AZ Cross events are USA Cycling permitted/sanctioned – check out the information regarding membership and licensing here – http://www.usacycling.org/ridewithus.htm

Schedule is set – we are back at Superstition Farms – Mooey Cross – two new Tucson race venues – Himmel Park and possibly Reid Park. Series Finals and States return to Crossroads Park in December.

Registration for Series events opens in mid-September at Arizonareg.com – second race of the day is only $10.00 – no reason not to make a day of it!

AZCX would not do exist without the support of local shops like Bicycle Ranch, Absolute Bikes, Bicycles Of Phoenix, North Valley Bikes, Flat Tire Bikes, and organizations like Cranky Cross, JetSet Racing and Clipped In

CLIF returns for another season as Series sponsor – and SRAM continues to provide the “power”.

Many thanks to Series supporters –
