CINCINNATI, OHIO — Corey Green, Race Director of the Kings CX cyclocross weekend in Cincinnati, has announced an increased cash payout for the Junior Men at the season final for the Zipp OVCX presented by Papa John’s on December 4. The Zipp OVCX region is one of the hotbeds of junior development in the United States, as evidenced by Louisville’s Drew Dillman recently clinching the national USICX standings with two races remaining while his teammate John Francisco is also in the top five in the USICX rankings.
The increased payout is only one of the premiums that Juniors will be racing for at the Kings CX weekend. The two-day event starts on Saturday, December 3, with the USAC Midwest Masters and Juniors Regional Championships. Juniors and Masters will be competing for both medals and competition-legal championship jerseys in 13 different divisions, with additional non-championship races for the Men’s and Women’s open races in Cat 4, Cat 3 and Elite.
On Sunday, December 4, the same venue in suburban Cincinnati will host the Season Finals of the Zipp OVCX Tour presented by Papa John’s. The hotly-contested Junior Male 15-18 division will be competing for a $500 cash purse, while all junior classes will have additional prizes courtesy of Chomper Body sports skin products, Gatorade, Pearl Izumi and Bob’s Red Mill.
