Registration is now open for the first cyclocross event on the Southern Ontario calendar, the Firemen’s Park Cross which takes place on 17 th of September in Niagara Falls, ON.
New for 2011, the course is rolling and fast with two dismounts per lap, a short runup and two moderate climbs per lap. 70% of the course is viewable from the covered finish / registration / pavillion area making it very spectator friendly. Refreshments and amazing coffee will be provided by the Coffee Peddler on site.
