Excited to have a southern Arizona cyclocross event back as part of the 2018 AZ CROSS Series p/b HAMMER and SRAM. Hosted by the University of Arizona Cycling Team, and the SWCCC Cyclocross Championship – and held at the famous 3C Ranch in Oracle. A couple of different events as part of the race day – both a relay and a steeplechase. Schedule is here:
Registration for all Series events will open shortly – July 1, 2018!
Thanks to GLOBAL BIKES, for the first time in the history of the Series (I think), Specialized has agreed to provide awards product to two of the Series events. At Mother Nature, and the Series Finals in Crossroads to race winners. Thank you Specialized!
We are excited to partner with Global Bikes on a couple of Series events this year – Mother Nature, and the Series Finals at Cross Roads.
Global will be on-site to provide those last minute repairs to your cyclocross rig, and merchandise prizes for awards.
Great to have Global back – and, yes, ‘cross is coming (before you know it).
We are excited to return to Globe once again in 2018. Mark your race calendar for one of the better cyclocross venues in Arizona – Saturday October 13.
