In a first for the North American cyclo-cross scene, current world champion Erwin Vervecken will become the first ever reigning world cyclo-cross champion to headline an event in North America, when he takes part in the two day Whitmore’s Landscaping Super Cross Cup in New York on October 6 and 7.

Not content with only having the richest women’s cyclo-cross in the world, promoter Myles Romanow has also significantly raised the profile of the men’s portion of the two-day international race with the signing of the Belgian Superstar.

Vervecken, a three-time professional world champion racing for the Fidea cycling team, joins last year’s women’s world championship silver medallist Katie Compton for what is now undoubtedly the finest scheduled line-up for any cyclo-cross in North America this season. Also scheduled to compete are multi-time US cyclo-cross and mountain bike champion Ryan Trebon, America’s first international cyclo-cross star Tim Johnson along with his many-time Canadian cycling champion Lyne Bessette, and a host of other champions.

The Whitmore’s Landscaping super cross cup is the only UCI-sanctioned cyclo-cross race in the state of New York. Held in the Long Island town of Southampton, the area is more generally known as "The Hamptons" and is famous for its "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous".
