The fourth annual Thread City Cyclo-cross will take place Saturday October 22 at Mansfield Hollow State Park in Mansfield, CT. Although the Mansfield Hollow venue has hosted cyclo-cross races dating back to the early 1980's, the historic course will have a new look this year thanks in part to local flooding that has placed the old course 40 feet underwater.
The new course will feature many of the same torturous run-ups, some technical off-camber sections as well as plenty of interesting turns. The new course promises to be faster and even more spectator friendly than the old course.
The competition looks to be fierce for the 2005 version of the Thread City Cyclo-cross Race as several current and past national champions have confirmed their participation in selected categories.
