WASHINGTON COUNTY, MARYLAND – The Antietam Velo Club officially announces the opening of registration for the 2012 BCA Cyclocross Challenge, which is also the first event to kick off the 2012

Sportif Cross Cup Series.   This year’s event will once again be held at the Ft. Ritchie military base in Cascade, MD as our team looks forward to making even more improvements on a course that received great reviews from our 2011 Sportif Cross Cup participants.  The event is scheduled to take place on the 16th  of September and  will be the “only” competitive event taking place within the region on that weekend.

We will be awarding cash prizes as well as merchandise provided by SRAM and Zipp.  Additional merchandise provided by Wantz Distributing and Rockstar Energy Drink.  Showers will be available at the community center and we are hoping that the earlier race date saves us from the rain that has hit us in the past years.  Nevertheless, mark your calendars for the 16th of September as we look forward to seeing you at the 2012 BCA Cyclocross Challenge.
