A popular Ohio cyclo-cross race stepped up its UCI status to category one for 2008. The BioWheels/United Dairy Farmers Cyclo-cross in suburban Cinncinati, Ohio, announced that the UCI had granted an upgrade for the race, which was last year graded a C2.

Last year's event drew racers like Barry Wicks and Katie Compton, who won the featured UCI races. This year, the race will be held on Sunday, October 12 as the capstone to a planned three-day weekend of UCI-sanctioned OVCX cyclo-cross racing in Ohio. It is part of the 14-event Ohio Valley Cyclo-cross Series in the Midwest US.
