The 2010 schedule for the Zipp Ohio Valley Cyclocross Tour paved way to what looks to be an unforgettable tour. The event will kick off at the Kings CX on September 19.
Last year’s opener was the most number of attendees for a non UCI OVCX competition. There will be fifteen races and it will take its riders across three states. The schedule follows a traditional set with one new race thrown in at the end of the year. This would be the last doubleheader weekend which will take place in Indianapolis. Three races are set for Indiana and six are in Ohio and Kentucky. Out of the five UCI races, two are UCI C1.
Director Mitch Graham of Zipp OVCX heralds the tour’s presence, “I think this schedule will establish the Ohio Valley as a bonafide, red-hotbed of ‘cross. There are only eight UCI C1 races in the U.S. this year, and the Zipp OVCX has 25% of them. We also have three races at the 2013 World Championship (and 2012-2013 Master’s World Championship) venue at Louisville’s Eva Bandman Park and the big three-day Cincinnati UCI3 Festival in October. And it’s looking increasingly likely that another of the municipal parks that we use as one of our venues may also be constructing a permanent cyclocross facility.”
Registration for the 2010 Zipp OVCX Tour may still be available on race-day or by mail. For more details, you can visit www.OVCX.com.
