Wicked Creepy Cyclocross, Presented by Bennington Area Trail System and Peak Racing/Valley Bike & Ski Werks

The Vermont stop in the 2018 NYCROSS Series is hosted by the Bennington Area Trail System (BATS) and Peak Racing Gear Works Cyclery. The course features plenty of grass and natural obstacles – including a vast sand pit – all set in a classic New England surrounding. The park is family friendly with two playgrounds, walking paths and a BMX course. Rest assured that members of the Wicked Creepy Crew are working hard to make this race a fun and creepy event.

Registration/sign in will open at 8 am and close 20 minutes prior to each field start.

Staging will be by crossresults.com ranking. For Women’s and Men’s 1/2/3 fields, first row by series points (after Race 1), then by crossresults.com ranking.

In the Men’s Cat 4 race, 40+ Masters, U19, and single speed fields will be eligible for bonus prizes. In the Men’s 1/2/3 race, 40+ Masters, U19, Cat 3, and single speed fields will be eligible for bonus prizes. (Yes, this means that a U19 Cat 3 who wins the 1/2/3 race could walk away with 4 prizes… and a huge pile of bragging rights)
