2010 MFG Cyclocross Series
The 2010 MFG Cyclocross schedule was released at the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championship Coming Out Party. The series is composed of six races which will begin in September. The final race will be on November 14 with the 2nd Annual Woodland Park Gran Prix.
Terry Buchanan, co-founder of the event, shares his excitement over the event. “MFG Cyclocross saw tremendous success last year during our inaugural season. We received enormous support from the Seattle cyclocross scene as participants and sponsors alike put trust in our new series.”
Zac Daab of MFG Cyclocross further adds, “Last year we produced a cyclocross series that brought a fresh attitude to ‘cross racing in Seattle. We are humbled by the feedback we received, yet we look forward to continually improving what we offer our participants in 2010.”
The MFG Cyclocross schedule highlights the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships on October 24 at Pacific Raceways. The SSCXWC is not recognized by any international or national racing organizations but is famous for its fanfare together with the singlespeed bike race.
Raleigh Bikes will host the event with BS Fornes, marketing director of Raleigh Bikes, at the helm. Buchanan comments, “We are honored that our presenting sponsor, Raleigh Bicycles, gave us the nod to produce the event. We’ll provide race-day logistics and course guidance while Fornes and crew with their newly formed W.U.S.S collective will provide the color.”
The additional sponsors for the event are Beyond Clothing, Brouwer’s Café, Cascade Bicycle Studio, The Cycling House, Full Speed Ahead, Izilla Toys, Lazer Helmets, Mavic, Nuun, Rapha, Stanley and Bob’s Red Mill for 2010.
