NACT expands into Canada

The North American Cyclocross Trophy will expand in its second season to take in ten events in the USA and Canada, organisers announced Tuesday. The 2009 series will add the Toronto International Cyclocross (October 17-18) to the eight races which made up this season's roster. The returning races will be the Star Crossed (September 19), RAD Racing Gran Prix (September 20), The Erdinger Gran Prix of Gloucester (October 3-4), Colorado races Blue Sky Velo Cup and the Boulder Cup (November 1) and the finale in New York at the Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup (November 21-22).

The expansion is part of the organisers' vision for the future, which includes turning the series into a "comprehensive pro tour". "We would love to see the sport get to a place where additional dates are supporting in the U.S. in the Southeast, Midwest and California and well as Western Canada," said Brook Watts, promoter of the Boulder Cup.
