The 4th Annual Corner Cycle Coonamessett Eco Cross is scheduled for October 1st. This years version of the race boasts a purse of over $1200 with cash for nearly every category, including some of the highest payouts for Masters and Beginners of any cross race! The races sponsorship growth and unique setting, including the Buzzards Bay Brewing Pavilion, has helped it grow from its grassroots origin to become a popular preparatory race for many top New England riders. Highlighting this years event will be former Junior Worlds member, Toby Marzot (Falmouth, MA), 2005 Verge NE series Masters Champion Jonny Bold (Marston Mill, MA) and 2005 Master National Cyclocross Champion Paul Curley.
Held on the 12 acre Coonamessett Farm in East Falmouth, MA, the fast and technical course offers little opportunity for riders to ride a rhythm, favoring technically skilled riders who can capitalize on the numerous twists and tight turns, as well as the three running sections. The limited space, however, is ideal for spectators and includes the Buzzards Bay Barrier section through the farms covered pavilion, providing comfortable viewing in all but the worst weather, as well as great farm fun for the whole family.
The Farm Café, registration and the course all open at 9 am, while the Buzzards Bay Brewing area will begin serving after 11 am. Also on hand will be members of Clean Power Now, Massachusetts Grassroots Organization with the latest information Americas first proposed off-shore wind farm.

We would like to thank our great sponsors George Sykes and Corner Cycle of Cape Cod, the Coonamessett Farm and their enormous support, Buzzards Bay Brewing and Clean Power Now, for their manpower support.
