  • Verge New England Championship Cyclocross Series Returns For 2011

    The Verge New England Championship Cyclocross Series returns in 2011 with a new focus – to develop and crown the best amateur racers in New England. This year’s Series will crown eight champions – for men, there are Masters 35+, 45+ and 55+, Juniors 10-14 and 15-18 and Amateur (Cat 3). For women, 2011 sees the second year of the Amateur (Cat 3/4) Women’s competition as well as the proud addition of a Masters 35+ contest within the Amateur Women’s race. With the continual growth of the Amateur Women’s field, it became important to add a second category within the race for the fastest category 3 or 4 woman over age 35. Of course, as in years past, there will be races at all events for Category 4 men. Each weekend will also feature at least one UCI-level Elite race that will attract some of the top competitors in the country and the world.
