2012 NYS Cyclocross Championships Announced!

The 2012 NYS Cyclocross Championships will be contested at the Spa Cross Cyclocross in Saratoga Springs, New York, on October 21, 2012. 

The challenging course is located on the eastern section of the Saratoga Race Course property, behind the Oklahoma training track. A grassy hillside provides elevation changes, including descents with off-camber turns and a run-up enforced by wooden steps. The hill also provides a panoramic view of the course for spectators. The course also makes use of existing sand roads and dirt piles as natural obstacles. The Start/Finish area includes a paved road that allows for a start grid and starting and finishing stretches.

Medals will be awarded for all NYS Championship Cyclocross categories, with cash prizes for elite races and swag for all other categories.  A non-sanctioned race will be scheduled for children younger than ten (10), and a dedicated children’s course will be open for use throughout the day.

A race expo will feature food vendors as well as items of interest to the cycling community.


USA Cycling Regional U23/Junior Development Camp! – Jul 3-8, 2012

 USA Cycling Regional Development Camps are for athletes racing age 14 to 22 years of age and who are at least 14 years old at the start of the camp. The attendees should have some racing experience.

The primary goal of the development camp is to improve the skill set of the athletes to make them better racers while inspiring them to the highest levels of the sport. Camp attendees will receive instruction from USA Cycling certified coaches and be treated to special guests speaking on nutrition, yoga and racing as professionals. We are again treated by the attendance of World Champion GORD SINGLETON, as well as Leslee Trzcinski (former pro) and Harvey Newton (former US National Weight lifting coach).

As a parallel benefit, the camp is to identify talent and, in some cases, select riders for international competition and/or for a national development camp.
