Raleigh BicyclesWant to go to the 2013 UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky?  Cyclocross Magazine has teamed up with Raleigh USA to offer a trip for two to World Championships including airfare, lodging, and VIP access to the event.

How do you win a trip for two to Worlds?  Simple! Just send us your dream cyclocross obstacle (not the actual obstacle but a text representation, picture, or video will be fine).  Something new, something exciting, something that might just find its way onto a course at say, SSCX on Thursday night at Worlds, or SSCXWC next year in Philadelphia. A giant mud pit? The slime guns from SSCXWC? Maybe obstacles inspired by Wipeout? Once we gather all of the entries we will pick our favorite and award the creator with a trip to Louisville!

We will take your cyclocross obstacles any way you want to send them to us.  Here are some examples of how you can submit your design:

  • Just write about it.
  • Send us a picture.
  • Create a sculpture or have arts and crafts time with your kids.  Nothing screams cyclocross like a marshmallow/toothpick barrier.
  • Create a video while riding your “obstacle” in your local park.
  • Send us full construction specs, a CAD drawing, or a finite element analysis study of your creation.
  • Heck, scribble it on a napkin and send that in.

Have another way you would like to submit your obstacle? Drop us an email with your idea, it’s probably fine. Email your design to contests [at] (include “Raleigh Contest” in the subject line).

Submissions are due Tuesday, January 15th and a winner will be announced later that week.

Lastly, your submissions cannot be previously published or published before we announce the winner.  This includes posting on blogs, social media, or YouTube.
