Cincinnati Cyclocross, a new 501(c)3 organization aiming to support and promote junior racers in the Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana tri-state region is proud to join the ever growing Ohio Valley cyclocross scene including: the Ohio Valley Cyclocross Series (OVCX); the Cincy 3 CX Festival, part of the 2012 Cross After Dark series; the USGP and Worlds in Louisville; and two pro clinics featuring Kaitlin Antonneau and Jeremy Powers.

Proceeds from Cincinnati Cyclocross events will go to assist junior CX racers and their teams looking to further their experience, such as helping them attend events like the USA Cycling Development Camp last week in Montana attended by OVCX juniors Ian McShane, Spencer Petrov and Drew Dillman.

Cincinnati clips into the 2012-13 Cyclocross season with pro cyclocross clinics designed to develop area racers.  First up, the Kaitlin Antonneau women’s clinic, presented by Cincinnati Cyclocross and Queen City Wheels/Lionhearts, takes place August 25- 26 at Kingswood Park.  The following weekend, September 1-2, Harbin Park hosts the Jeremy Powers clinic presented by JBV and Fulcrum Coaching.  Registration is open for both at

Both Kingswood and Harbin venues will be featured in the upcoming Cincy 3 Cyclocross Festival, a three day weekend of UCI races November 2-4.  Day 2 of the Cincy 3 CX Festival at Kingswood is also the third stop in the Cross After Dark Series Saturday, November 3rd.

Cincinnati Cyclocross founder Corey Green says the clinics are a great way to kick off cyclocross racing in the Ohio Valley region and continue the development of area juniors.  Giving a nod to the World Championships coming to nearby Louisville, he says it’ll be a season that starts with J-Pow and ends with a bang.

Cincinnati Cyclocross is supported by United Dairy Farmers, a long time sponsor of cyclocross in Cincinnati.  To learn more about becoming involved in junior racing in the Ohio Valley visit the Cincinnati Cyclocross page on Facebook.
