Wisconsin championships to benefit food bank

The Brazen Dropouts cycling club will host the Wisconsin State Cyclo-cross Championships this Sunday, November 19, at the Angell Park Motor Speedway, in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. The race is the final race (#8) in the Wisconsin Cycling Association-Planet Bike Cyclo-crossRace Series.

First used in 2003, this venue offers up a pure challenge, providing racers & spectators everything they love in a 'cross race. The promoters have laid a course with some new challenges, including a stair climb, more off-camber sections and fast banked corners. An added bonus is dry & heated facilities which will make the event fun for all, no matter what the weather may bring. The event will also offer a kid's race mid-day on a special kid sized cyclo-cross course.

The event will include a holiday food drive, to benefit 2nd Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin. Anyone making a donation will be entered into a drawing for prizes.

The race flyer and detailed course layout are posted at, while Wisconsin 'cross series information can be found at
