Cyclocross is one of the most fun and exciting types of bike racing ever created.
Participants race their bikes on a closed course over grassy fields navigating tight twisty turns, steep punchy hills, and up and over barriers. Sometimes there is mud, there are always a lot of smiles and racing is good, hard fun work.
Races typically last anywhere from 30min to 60min depending on the level of rider. Racers newer to the sport will enter races that are a little shorter, and veterans of the sport will race for an hour. We have two series in MN. The first is WNCX (Wednesday Nigh Cyclocross), this is a practice series and is not sanctioned by USA Cycling. These races are a great way to try the sport out and the series starts in late August. We also have a USA Cycling sanctioned series that is run by the Minnesota Cycling Federation. These races take place on weekends and racers will need to have an annual USA Cycling license or purchase a day license to join the races.
The races are hosted at local bike shops and teams and all races are designed to be inclusive and fun for everyone.
Our Mission at cx-mn
Our goal at CX-MN is to provide you with all the information you need to enjoy racing one of Minnesota's best bike seasons. We want to do all the work on consolidating race day information so all you need to do is show up at the races ready to go.
CX-MN is run and maintained via volunteers. Our goal is to support CX season and we are not affiliated with any one shop or team. We want to promote all races and racers.
