Cyclocross is a fall cycling sport that resembles a steeplechase where racers on cyclocross or mountain bikes traverse a park-like course with hills, turf, pavement, dirt trails, creek crossings and low wooden barricades. Riders must dismount their bicycles and jump over barricades, experienced racers more gracefully than others. Races are timed events lasting from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on ability. Weather conditions vary significantly from sun to rain to snow. Cyclocross is a great way to maintain fitness into the winter.

Points will be awarded for each race with the winner of each category receiving an Overall Series Winner jersey presented by Pactimo.

All races in this series will use the new USA Cycling cyclocross racing category classification. A rider will be classified from 1 to 4 respectively.
