Cortez CX Results

This Saturday November 23rd starting at 10am the Durango Performance Center 4 Corners Cyclocross Series will make it’s 3rd stop at Ray Denison Memorial Field at Fort Lewis College. Cyclocross racers from all over the region will be battling against the course and the elements to prove themselves against racers from the Fort Lewis College Cycling Team and all will earn points in the Series culminating on January 4th, 2014. The FLC student-athletes and many of the community members are honing their skills and ramping up their fitness in preparation for the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Boulder, CO on January 9-14, 2014.

The Series has already completed stops in Dolores and Cortez and this weekend brings three races in a row to Fort Lewis College. The race will be held on a mile long enclosed course with many twists and turns, obstacles forcing riders to dismount to run with their bikes and long sections of pedaling. The course will utilize a lot of the terrain in the Stadium, practice fields and the area around Whalen Gymnasium and will be run rain, snow or shine. Cyclocross is considered to be the most fan-friendly of the cycling disciplines where much of the action can be seen from one vantage point and fans can get up close to the action in the technical sections. While many competitors use Cyclocross bikes the races are open to mountain bikes also.

Cyclocross brings out many of the cycling luminaries in Durango with the likes of Todd Wells, Ned Overend, Troy Wells, Travis Brown and Carmen Small doing battle with former and current FLC racers Matt Shriver, Mike Wilk, Ben Sonntag, Rotem Ishay, Sarah Sturm, Brittany Clawson, Sofia Gomez Villafane, Kolben Preble and Payson McElveen.

The racing action starts at 10am with the Cat. 3/4 Men, Open Women and Men 50+ racing for 40 minutes. At 11am the Cat. 1/2/3 Men and Men 35+ race for 50 minutes. This weekends race is USA Cycling sanctioned meaning that all Cat. 1/2/3 racers will need to have an annual USA Cycling license – all other racers can purchase a one-day license for $10. Registration is on site only and opens at 8:30am at the stadium press box – cost is $25.

The remaining Series races are:
Dec. 7 at FLC
Dec. 14 at FLC
Dec. 21 at Aztec
Jan. 4 at FLC

Come cheer on the FLC team and community members and bring your mountain bike up if you want to give Cyclocross racing a try.
