Louisville, Kentucky:  Bob’s Red Mill Cyclocross Team, the first and only dedicated cyclocross team in Kentucky, is proud to announce plans for its fourth season.  Thanks to the generous support of its sponsors and the enthusiastic backing of a hometown gone cross-crazy, the team is hoping to build upon last year’s regional domination and strong presence at the USGP series, UCI races and Euro Cross Camp.

Highlights from last season include:

  • Bronze Medal: 30-34 Men, UCI Masters World Championships
  • 14th: Juniors, UCI Elite World Championships
  • Silver Medal: Singlespeed Women, USA National Championships
  • Overall Champion: Masters 45+, USGP Series
  • 1st-2nd-3rd Overall: Elite Men, Zipp OVCX Series

Bob’s Red Mill Cyclocross is also proud to announce that in addition to the Elite team, it will also focus on rider development this season with its newly-formed Grassroots squad.  These riders were selected from around the country to represent the team on and off the race course, through their passion for the sport of cyclocross and their dedication to healthy diet and exercise.

The Elite team will focus on the USGP Series, UCI races and the USA National Championships, with hope of returning to Europe.

Catch them at the OVCX Series kickoff at Huber’s Apple Cross in Starlight, IN on September 16.  Registration is available at: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/16988
