Update on Barnaroo CX with Flyer

Less than 4 weeks until the 2014 ASHEVILLE BARNAROO CX Race. The layout for the CX race is figured out. It will be tough with a creek crossing and numerous climbs but it will pass within 50 feet of the main stage, so at least you can rock out while suffering. Registration is up on the Franny’s Farm website. We need help getting the word out. Tommy Wilson has a flyer made up and will distribute at the Crosstown Velo Racing Team Wednesday night races and the next Asheville Cyclocross race.

Barnaroo CX!

As part of the Asheville area Barnaroo music festival, the event organizers have asked us to organize and promote a cyclocross race as part of the festival, during the festival. So while rock, hard rock, and funk music is going on – all to raise money for the Asheville Music School – you can be rocking your dismounts, or getting rocked, while rowdy, music-crazed, beer-fueled fans scream and cheer you on. It sounds like euro-style ‘cross race atmosphere to me!

The race is October 4th with categories C, B, and A at 1:00p, 2:00p, and 3:00p, respectively. Unfortunately we realize this is the same day as an MSG race, but since this is run concurrently with and part of the festival we did not have a say in regards to a date. But if you are looking to stay local, race during a music festival, and be low-key, then this will be more suited to you!

VeloSports Racing sponsors Hi-Wire Brewing and Youngblood Bicycles are part of this as well. We hope to see the rest of you there.

2014 Savage CX

Congratulations to Ben Wiegand for his 2nd place in the Men’s 30-39 class at the Savage CX. The feeling from participants is that the word ‘Savage’ is appropriately in there, while the term ‘CX’ is potentially misleading. That makes for one hard race.
