FSVS CX (Fair Hill) and HPCX November 9 & 10

Who put that tree there?

The MAC proudly welcomes the series’ hidden jewel, First State Velo Velo Sport Cyclocross (FSVS CX), to the Fair Hill Natural Resource Center and a UCI 2 race in at Highland Park (HPCX). The following weekend Kutztown Cross debuts.

 The Fuji Bikes MAC Series presented by SRAM brings the best in grass roots and UCI racing in one weekend on November 9 and 10.  November 17 newcomer Kutztown Cross debuts.

Registration is open for First State Velo Sport CX (FSVS CX) on November 9, a challenging course located in the Fair Hill Natural Resource Area, home to numerous mountain bike rides and races.  The next day the series moves to Jamestown, NJ for HPCX, a UCI 2 race that features another challenging course in an equally idyllic setting.

Race promoter Mike “CZ” boasts the FSVS CX is “truly grass-roots and how cross was meant to be raced” venue.  Located on the stunning grounds of the Fair Hill Natural Resource Area, FSVS CX presents a challenging course with natural barriers, undulating off-camber turns, and scenery so stunning that it’s distracting.

Fair Hill, familiar to Mid-Atlantic fat tire aficionados, offers something for every taste:  roller coaster switchbacks, speed zones, climbs, and a few tricky descents challenge ever rider’s strengths and exposes their weaknesses.

It’s easy to locate HPCX—just look for the crazy climbs and the aroma of barbecue.  This UCI race draws elite riders from all over the east coast and presents a challenging off-camber, twisty, climbing course.  Even when Mother Nature doesn’t dump a surprise snow storm the night before, this course is a beast.

After the HPCX UCI race, the Fuji Bikes MAC Series returns the following weekend to grass roots racing with the welcome addition of Kutztown Cross, penultimate race in the 2013 Series.  Series promoters are excited about this addition and look forward to seeing MAC racers test their skills at this new venue.

The final race of the season will be December 15 at Limestone Cross at the Kiln.  In the meantime, the MAC has plenty of opportunities for racers this November.
