Cyclo-cross in Las Vegas?

Boulder-based event organizer DBC Events has announced details about Excel Sports CrossVegas scheduled for September 26 in Las Vegas. The UCI Category 2 race will be held at Desert Breeze Soccer Complex, a Clark County facility in western Las Vegas 6 miles from the "Vegas Strip." Fully lighted, the park features grassy slopes and paved pathways. "The location is a short distance straight out Desert Inn Road from the Strip," says promoter Chris Grealish,

Elite Women are scheduled to race at 7:30 pm and Elite Men at 9:00 pm. The later start times are intended to permit attendees of the Interbike Show ample opportunity to complete their business and head to the race says Grealish.

Planned activities at the event include a beer garden. "We've got a full moon that night, great competition, food, drink and Elvis working the lap board," Grealish said.

Top U.S. Cyclo-crossers will be making appearances at the race. Grealish explained, "We have some great athlete announcements planned in the next few weeks. The quality of the field will amaze people."

Excel Sports CrossVegas will be taped for broadcast on Altitude Sports and Entertainment Network later in the fall reaching over 5.2 million households in 10 western states. Complete race details for Excel Sports CrossVegas are available at
