It’s summer – but ‘cross is coming!

It’s easy to not see past the heat here in Arizona – but before you know it ‘cross season will be here! With the AZ CROSS and the DESERT CROSS CUP cyclocross racers here in the southwest will have lots of choices – and opportunities to get it on.

Brandy-new venue in Sedona – replaces Flagstaff – looks pretty challenging. Relatively flat, but will incorporate some classic Sedona single track. Both days races will be held at West Sedona Elementary School/Posse Grounds Park.

Horse Lovers on Thanksgiving weekend – it has become a must-race in November. Always a few twists and turns in the course, and 2017 will be no exception.

Series Finals back at Crossroads Park in Gilbert – expect to see a return to the original courses – long straights, a few up and downs (and hopefully no lake!).

Could not do it with SRAM – back in 2017 as Presenting Sponsor.

And local shops have stepped up in support – thanks Absolute Bikes, North Valley Bicycles, and Bicycle Ranch.

CLIF BAR AZ CROSS SERIES powered by SRAM Schedule

AZ-Cyclocross-Poster-2017

So, yes, there are TWO Arizona Cyclocross Series – we are working together co-promoting, and avoiding schedule conflicts. We believe this is a GOOD thing for racers and cyclocross racing in Arizona. More venue choices, more events, and great desert racing. Please support both. Congratulations to the Desert Cross Cup promoters – it is not easy putting a Series together!

Registration is open for select AZ CROSS Series events above – and Sedona venue in Posse Grounds Park is looking super sweet. A weekend of racing in Red Rocks country….
