Pumpkin Cross


The temps have been dipping near the frost zones for the last couple of days. While it’s typically warming up to moderate temps by the afternoon, the freeze and thaw may have an effect on racers as they head out to the cross courses this weekend. Be prepared with the right tires and tire pressure and you’ll be sure to gain an advantage! Check below for all the racing action coming up.


Pumpkin Cross – Just north of Milwaukee is the town of Grafton and home to Pumpkin Cross. If you like the challenge of a big climb and technical riding that’ll take you on a slalom descent and through gravel, this may be perfect for you. The race is part of Wisconsin’s Super Cup series.

Chicross Cup Series Race #4 –This week’s race heads to Randall Oaks Park in Elgin. While in the same town as Carpenter Park, we’ll have to wait and see what Main Street Bicycles and Sasquatch Squadron dream up for a fun and competitive course. For race details, click here.
