Severe Weather:  We will be keeping our eyes on the weather.  If the event needs to be canceled we will post it on Facebook, and Twitter.  We will also shoot out a mass email to those that are registered.

Volunteers:  We are looking for volunteers to help with registration, counting laps, and setup.  Please call 605-275-2453 and talk to Owen about volunteering or go HERE.

*After the cyclocross race we will take down the barriers and have a 20 minute fat bike race on the same course.  Fat bikes need to have a 3" tire or wider to be classified as a fat bike.  We will have a fleet of 6 fat bikes to use the day of.


Why Cyclocross in Sioux Falls?

We want cycling to continue year round or at least as year round as possible. This is just one more way to enjoy cycling.

What kind of bike do i need?

You can ride any bike in this race. Mountain bikes and hybrid bikes are welcome. If your kids have BMX bikes, those are welcome too. We want this to be for everyone.

What race should I be in?

If you have a cyclocross bike then odds are you should be in the "A" race. If you can go out and ride 30-50 miles on a weekend and have fun doing it then you should be in the "A" race. If you are new to cycling or riding offroad, give the "B" race a try. If you like it, do the "A" race next year.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

Yes you do. We know you are a good rider but we aren't so sure about the guy next to you. You look better in a helmet.

What if I can't keep riding after 10 minutes?

Stop. You tried harder than the 164,957 citizens that didn't come out and try. It's about the fun. If you aren't having fun. Find another way to have fun. I suggest yelling and encouraging the other riders on the course.
