The 2007 Georgia Cross series kicks off Sunday, October 21st in Conyers, GA. The race will be held at the Georgia International Horsepark, site of the 1996 Olympic mountain bike race. Last year the event saw record turnouts for Georgia Cross only to be surpassed by the Fort Yargo race a few weeks later. Race organizer Shey Lindner said "We had a great year last year and expect it to grow again this year. We're going to let the juniors race for free at the Conyers race to encourage family participation. Georgia Cross has really taken off."
The series consists of seven races, two new venues, held in Conyers, Fort Yargo, Monroe, Macon, Augusta, Blue Ridge, and Dahlonega. Verge is supplying leader's jerseys again and Cannondale will once again provide demo bikes for the series available to the racers on a first come first serve basis.
