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.
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….
Awesome news for Arizona CX racers – a second Series. Looks like a great schedule…..
The original CX Series remains…with four Series events coming in 2017. Horse Lovers, Crossroads Park, and a new venue in Sedona.
