We’ve received several emails about new cyclocross events in NWA. First thought. Who even owns a cyclocross bike anymore? Cyclocross had a couple years of popularity here in NWA but never really took off to become a staple on the annual event calendar. But recently we are seeing a significant uptick in events and we are hearing that more are coming. What gives?
We have always wondered why the spectator friendly, sometimes wacky cyclocross scene never really stuck here in NWA. It is probably one of the best disciplines for young people to be introduced to competitive cycling. Needless to say we are excited to hear about the new interest in cyclocross! And we can confirm that BIG things are in the works for cyclocross in NWA. Does it mean we will see Wout Van Aert cruising down the Greenway? Who knows…maybe. We are finding more and more that anything is possible in NWA when it comes to bicycles. We ain’t complaining! So bring on the cross & break out the cowbells!! Check out the known events below.
