MABRA CX Schedules Are Here!

August 4, 2016

Jump for joy! Cross is coming!

It’s August, yet careful observers will notice the signs of cyclocross season’s approach.

The pungent aroma of tire glue lingers in the garage.

The salty taste of interval training bites the tongue.

The clickity-clack of keyboards echo from race promoters’ laptops. They’ve set the schedules.

It’s in your hands, now. Negotiate the weekends, do the calendar dance, and get ready to pin on your numbers and throw down.

Opportunities abound!

We have two major series in the DMV area, Super8CX and Sportif  ‘Cross Cup.

Baltimore’s Charm City Cross (October 8-9) will be UCI C2 on Saturday and UCI C1 on Sunday! We may get to see twelve-time U.S. Cyclocross National Champion Katie F’n Compton!

September 24th sees the birth of Out of Bounds Cross, a new race in Baltimore County that incorporates a new race day concept, focusing on Junior and Beginner racers.

And on October 1st a new race is coming onto the scene as part of the Crossland Festival, a bike festival on the grounds of the Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, MD.
