3 UCI races, 3 unique venues, 3 National Champions – that’s the 333 Plan. Talk about more cowbell! The oldest UCI weekend in the Midwest, the Cincy3 November 4-6 weekend is delivering three days of full fields and world class talent on 3 unique world-class race venues. Featuring 3 National Champions, the Cincy3 Cyclocross Festival (CXFestival.com), November 3-6, is happy to announce its schedule and early confirmed riders:
Thursday, November 3rd: Junior, Men’s and Women’s Cyclocross Clinics at Harbin Park, hosted by the top ranked riders in the United States: Katie Compton and Jeremy Powers.
Friday, November 4th: (C2) Cyclo-Stampede p/b Darkhorse Racing Devou Park, Covington, Kentucky. A hilltop, rolling course featuring the most picturesque vista of downtown Cincinnati.
Saturday, November 5th: (C2) Java Johnnys/Lionhearts International Sunset Park, Middletown, Ohio. A spectator- friendly, fast, and compact course tucked into a friendly neighborhood.
Sunday, November 6th: (C1) BioWheels/United Dairy Farmers Harbin Park, Fairfield, Ohio. The granddaddy is C1 for a reason; featuring long false flats, ripping descents, and a double sand pit equipped with its own cowbells.
Pro Women: After delaying her 2011 season to concentrate on her quest for the World Championship, Katie Compton, the reigning US National Cyclocross Champion, will make her 2nd stop in the US at the Cincy3 Cyclocross Festival including a clinic for women and juniors. The current starting grid is currently rounded out by: 2011 French National Cyclocross Champion Caroline Mani (CC Etupes Le Doubs Pays de Montbéliard), Sue Butler (River City Bicycles), Meredith Miller and Teal Stetson-Lee (Cal Giant), and Coryn Rivera (Marian).
Pro Men: Gloucester winners Jeremy Powers (Rapha Focus) and 6-time Swiss National Champion Christian Heule (Cannondale P/B Cyclocrossworld) get the call up for the men and share the starting grid with Tim Johnson (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld), Christopher Jones (Rapha-Focus), Jamey Driscoll (Cannondale p/b Cyclocrossworld) and USGP-leader Ryan Trebon (LTS/Felt).
UCI Junior: The Cincy3 Cyclocross Festival is excited to be presenting its first-ever UCI Juniors races for Saturday’s and Sunday’s races. There are very few weekends in the US for this very important category and we are rolling out the red carpet. The Ohio Valley has some of the strongest junior programs in the country and we’re hoping for some great racing. Any riders who could use help getting to Cincinnati to race should contact Doug Dobrozsi ([email protected], 513-403-1951).
