Mooey Cross – Cancelled

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.
