Wednesday Night CX starts off the early cyclocross season with seven weeks of racing at Aquila Park in St. Louis Park starting August 31st. "These races will be organized, structured, low key early season races. A great time to try the sport as a beginner or a chance to work out the kinks for those returning for the new season." These are not USA Cycling races so results will not be sent, points will not be earned and a USA Cycling license is not needed to race.
If you have ever wanted to give cyclocross racing a try, this is your chance. Entry fee is only $20 and registration starts one hour before the first race each week and ends 15 minutes prior to race start. Pre-register for the series for $120 at any of the Wendesday Night CX Sponsors. Start times will change each week as daylight decreases so check the flyer and don't be late. Advanced race will be around 60 minutes, Intermediate 45 minutes, Beginner 30 minutes and Newbies (8/31 & 9/7) for 15 minutes. This is a chip timed series.
Course layout changes each week and will be done by that week's sponsoring shop. Sponsoring shops include:
8/31 Now Bike and Fitness/Synergy
9/7 The Fix Studio
9/14 Angry Catfish
9/21 Maple Grove Cycling
9/28 Penn Cycle & Fitness
10/5 All City/Fulton
10/12 Tonka Cycle/MCT
