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.
