The Series wrapped up Saturday December 9 at Crossroads Park in Gilbert – lots of smiles, great weather and racing. Each year we try to design each stop in the Series a bit different – kind of believe the Series needs to design courses that test each of the requisite skill sets to race cyclocross. Yesterday we a great example of that – grass, hills, power straights, off camber corners, and barriers.
Crossroads Race Results.
Thanks to participating racers, and their family and friends – for supporting Arizona’s original cyclocross Series.
