The fun (and pain) continues this weekend as rounds two and three of the Cow Town Cyclocross Series will take place along the Missouri River at the E.H. Young Riverfront Park. The signature event of the series, the Riverside Cyclocross Festival, takes place November 4th and 5th and will feature a classic cyclo-cross course, free food and drinks, a beginners cyclo-cross clinic, custom awards, cow bells and over $2000 in cash, awards, primes and prizes.
The 1.6 mile course designed by event director Chris Locke features a barrier free course, but has several natural features that “may” require a dismount. “I am an old school cross racer and like to design courses that test a riders technical ability as well has their fitness and race savvy”
Former winners of the “Elite” class include National CX champion Steve Tilford and three-time champion Chad Smith. The best riders in the Midwest will lineup this weekend for another classic battle along the Missouri River banks.
