Velocross 2010: November 20, 2010

Velocross 2010 will take place on Saturday, November 20, 2010 at the Northeast Velodrome & Cycling Park. Promoted in conjunction with the Northeast Bicycle Club, Velocross will be held on a course that includes the banked velodrome, its infield, a wooded section including a bridge crossing and run up, as well as portions of gravel road and the Northeast BMX track. The course has been considerably revised over past years by reversing previous course direction, constructing a new bridge, widening the wooded section, as well as smoothing and grading of the infield sections. The course diagram drawn by Velodrome Director, Kurt Begemann.
This mile-long course will run quite fast, and who knows, given the weather. The cycling park is a great venue for easy and quick access of the all the racing for spectators. Additionally, racers can have a great weekend of local 'cross racing with Shed Park on Sunday in nearby Lowell, MA. Please check for all racing categories and event details. We look forward to seeing you in November. And don't forget that Wednesday night training is running through the end of October. Get a home field advantage by training on the same course that will be used fo racing in November; it's a great opportunity!
