B.Y.O.C. (BRING YOUR OWN COWBELL!)
Formerly the SeptemberCross series, this series of 3 fun cyclocross races is moving to August to take advantage of the longer daylight hours and to provide better competitive training leading up to the UCI international on Labor Day Weekend. The event is for novice and experienced riders alike. This year, we are adding a 20-minute Recreational Race in addition to the 35-minute Sport Race for those new to Cyclocross or wanting a shorter race.
Racers will ride the one-mile mixed surface CX course at Fallon Park. Competitors must be eight years old or older. Spectators are encouraged to bring a cowbell and to cheer on riders. Roanoke’s SummerCross Race Series is sponsored by Roanoke Parks and Recreation, East Coasters Bike Shop, and GO Cross.
