Northern AZ CX p/b Absolute Bikes

Weather looks great for Saturday (even Friday is looking better) – still may be classic cyclocross conditions on race day, but the sun will shine in Flagstaff!

Absolute Bikes will be on-site to provide tech support, full compliment of CLIF BAR schwag…and a great race course.

The course will be slightly different this year than last – need to lengthen it a bit, and add as many technical pieces as we can find in the venue. But at the end of the day, the terrain is the terrain.

Do not forget your USA Cycling License and photo ID to get your race number.

And register today before the price increases –

Arizona State CX Championships p/b Bicycle Ranch

Got some bad news today – TREK has decided not to continue as the Title sponsor for the State Championships. But the show will go on – Sunday December 20 at Cross Roads. Full schedule of racing to get ready for Nationals in January – or for the holidays! Many thanks to SRAM, CLIF Bar, and Bicycle Ranch for stepping up and helping fill some of the gap left with the TREK departure.

Remember racing begins on Saturday in Globe – great course, and the warm Arizona weather is forecasted to return.

BH demos are available – not to race – but you can take a spin and check out one the lightest, fstaest CX bikes on the market. We will be selling two (2) BH demo bikes on December 1….

Thank you all for your support!
