Cross Nationals Jan 9th-13th!

Check out the poster below for all of the awesome ‘Cross related events coming up next week! The actual races start on Wednesday of next week. We’ll be there, camera’s in tow to check out the action. There will be of course some of the best of the best cyclocross racing, shanties, a full on expo center, coffee, great food, a sweet Saris/Cycle Ops sponsored warm up tent, music, and a hell of a lot of fun!

We strongly encourage everyone to come out and see what ‘Cross is all about. Even if you could care less about bicycle racing, it’s the atmosphere that makes the experience fun for both spectators and racers.


Cross Nationals Shanty Competition

In pretty much all of the upper Midwest and Canada as well, ice fishing is a long held tradition. Each year our deep ponds and lakes are scattered with ice shanties of all shapes, sizes and designs. The folks who are putting on the CycloCross Nationals in Madison want to bring this tradition to the great winter race.

Area individuals as well as businesses are taking place in the competition. Word in the local bike world is that the crew over at Planet Bike have something awesome brewing. Saris/Cycle Ops isn’t taking the challenge lightly and will be trying to pull out all of the stops.

If you think you have what it takes to create the best shanty in the land, check out the Cross Nationals blog for more details! A word from the wise, good beer and bacon are always good tools of persuasion for the judges 😉
