CCXC13 – Under the Lights!

We finally have the race location confirmed! The CoMO Cyclocross Cup will take place at Cosmopolitan Park on September 21, 2013 in Columbia, MO. Had an awesome meeting with the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department this past Wednesday and they’re equally excited about the event.

Oh, and did I mention CCXC13 will be held at NIGHT? That’s right, we’ll have the course lit up Saturday night, so be ready to rumble underneath the lights.

We’re currently in talks with two new sponsors for the event. Local businesses Focus on Health and The Eye Gallery are stepping up to the plate to help make CCXC13 even better.

Focus on Health Chiropractic has been serving the Columbia community since 2009. Dr. Curt Kippenburger is a cyclist and local rock climber who specializes in sports related injuries and recovery. He’s helped many in the local cycling community overcome injuries and become better athletes and we’re really excited to be working with him and the rest of Focus on Health.

The Eye Gallery is not a new name to Columbia, but has recently come under new ownership. Jim Williams is a local cyclist and avid outdoorsman and hopes to focus part of his business on performance eyewear. Cyclocross is an intense sport and requires extreme focus and attention. The proper prescription eyewear can make a huge difference in your performance.

So who is going to show come September 21st? Will St. Louis make the drive and tear it up? Will Kansas City come out of nowhere and make everyone suffer? Or will Central Missouri stomp all over the both of them like usual (oh SNAP!!)

Now we’re finishing up some permitting with USAC and we should have the BikeReg page ready to go soon. After that we’ll be able to focus on the smaller details that are going to put this race on another level. Keep an eye on the website, facebook and twitter feeds to stay up to date!
