Belltown CX is proud to participate in both the Connecticut Series of Cross, the Zanconato Single Speed Cyclocross Trophy Series, and New England CX Best All-Round Rider (NECXBAR) series  Earn points while you race, and most of all, come out and have fun on bikes!

Course Description:  Course is roughly 3 km through the rolling fields, dirt/gravel roads, and trails located on Nelson’s Family Campground, in East Hampton, CT.  Please note: no preriding is allowed when racers are on course. Expect 2 sets of barriers, a run-up, a beach/sand pit, and other traditional CX course features. The course will be similar to last year. Based on rider feedback, we have eliminated sharp gravel corners and shortened the course a bit to allow for additional laps.  All the best features remain intact and great thing will be even better!  (See?  We listen 😉 )
