Cyclocross Comes to Panther Island


Our friends at Fort Worth Cyclocross have just announced a new race series which will take place at Panther Island Pavilion.

What the heck is cyclocross you ask? Well, cyclocross (sometimes called CX or ‘cross) is a form of bicycle racing. Races typically consist of many laps of a short ( 1.5–2 mile) course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry and run with the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount.

It has been popular in Europe for years but recently it has really started taking off in the good ol’ US of A.

The action packed race series put on by FWCX will be an official USA Cycling sanctioned series on Tuesday nights from October 4th- November 22nd (except for a night off on November 8 because democracy). The event is sponsored and supported by local bike shops and sponsors. The series is family friendly, welcomes spectators, and will have races for kids, women, and men.
