About the Durham Cyclocross Classic
The Durham Cyclocross Classic was resurrected by Dan Salter in 2001 based on 'cross events that took place in the 1980's in Heber Down C.A. Dan Salter was an accomplished Road, Mountain and 'Cross racer until 2006. Dan fell in love with 'cross racing in 1998 and has seen it grow quickly from infancy in Ontario. Dan's goal is to introduce newcomers to the fun, adventure and personalities involved with cyclocross racing.
