From NYCROSS.com – After a successful debut in 2009, Saratoga Spa Cyclocross returns in 2010 with a new venue at the historic Saratoga Race Course and exciting new events for both racers and curious members of the public. More than 250 racers are expected to compete on Sunday, Oct. 24.
Earlier this week, Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com pro Jeremy Powers, just a day after winning the Green Mountain Stage Race, visited the venue to help promoters lay out a challenging course. Powers described the venue and course as “sick,” while riding circles around thoroughbreds still on hand following the end of Saratoga’s horse racing season. The horses will be gone by October, but the challenging terrain will remain.
Races will be held at the Saratoga Race Course ‘Lowlands,’ off of Henning Road, and will begin at 9 a.m. Elite and professional men will race at 1:30 p.m., elite and professional women at 12:30 p.m.
The Kids Race will roll off at noon, followed by a one-lap “Run What You Brung” race for anyone wishing to experience cyclocross. Entry into these two special categories is free and requires no pre-registration.
An expo at the finish line will feature local business selling food and drink, as well as cycling industry vendors.
Racers, spectators and the cross-curious are encouraged to attend! Volunteers needed for race day and for setup the day prior. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
Please forward this information to your clubs and anyone who wants to experience upstate New York’s premier ‘cross experience.
