In response to the recent hub-bub between the UCI Cyclo-cross commission and several US series, the Verge New England Championship Cyclo-Cross Series has just posted its 2011 calendar. Read our coverage about the controversy here,

Verge New England Championship Cyclo-Cross Series president, Adam Myerson:
Following a meeting of all the New England UCI race organizers last evening, I’m proud to announce the 2011-12 Verge New England Cyclo-Cross Series schedule.

For 2011-12, the Verge Series will not include Elite or U23 Men and Women, but will continue for all the current USAC categories:

  • Cat 3 Men
  • Cat 3/4 Women
  • Masters 35+ (1-3)
  • Masters 45+
  • Masters 55+
  • Juniors 15-18
  • Juniors 10-14

Further, the Verge Series will aim to strengthen itself as a union of organizers committed to each other’s success, and will include all 15 events in New England that also host categories for UCI Elite men and women:
