Wow, The leaves are changing color, and the sound of cowbells, vuvuzela horns and heckling is filling the air. It’s CYCLOCROSS SEASON! More importantly, Team Belgianwerkx is pleased to be hosting the Grafton PumpkinCross race this Saturday, October 12th. Registration opens at 8:00, and racing goes all day from 9:00 AM to 4:15 PM. Or you can register online.
If you’ve never experienced a “CX” race, you really need to attend this event. Racers ride around trees, jump barriers, ride up (and down) the sledding hill, all while spectators cheer (and heckle) wildly. You may even witness the hand-off of a cupcake, dollar bill or malted beverage to riders WHILE RACING. We’ll have a live band, the Street-Za Pizza food truck and New Belgium beer adding to the party.
Our podium finishers will receive merchandise prizes from Cannondale, Ridley, Park Tool, New Belgium and Giro (as well as a pumpkin of course!) The Pro Men & Women will share nearly $1000 in prize money.
So come on out to Lime Kiln Park in Grafton! Whether you’re racing or spectating, you don’t want to miss this!
