Fuji Bikes MAC Series presented by SRAM says farewell to the 2013 season at the fourth annual Limestone Cross at the Kiln in Emmaus, Pennsylvania on December 15.

Race director Michael Yozell of Kapelmuur Independent promises another challenging course this year.  The 2.8 kilometer course consists of undulating terrain, a wooded section, and promises some world class heckling will be part of the day.

Over $1,000 is up for grabs in the Elite Men’s race, with the winner getting $230.  Not bad for 60-minutes of work. First place for the women is also $230. That’s right—equal payouts.

While no cash is at stake for the B categories, overall series winners of the B Men and B Women category will receive a frameset courtesy of title sponsor Fuji Bikes.

C3 Twenty20 Cycling’s Arley Kemmerer appears to have secured the overall win for the Elite Women’s field while Cameron Dodge (Scott Racing) has crushed it in the Elite Men’s division.  In an astounding upset, it looks like Bike Line may beat out longstanding champions C3 Twenty20 Cycling in the overall team division. But this is cyclocross and anything is possible.
