2017 Pictures And Results

(let us know if you take any great pictures at the races)


New to Cyclocross?

This series is designed as a fun and welcoming series catering to all types of racers. Most importantly Cross Central is designed as a relaxed but competitive race series with an encouraging and fun atmosphere that should cater well to the beginning racer that wants to try cyclocross racing.  Beginners who may be considering racing cross but do not own a cyclocross specific bike are always welcome to use mountain bikes (without bar ends) and should find this a great series to find mentors and start a first race.

If you are new to cyclocross and have any questions/concerns, please email us or reach out over social media.
