Not your average CX in the park. A cyclocross through the backwoods of Victory for cross bikes or mountain bikes – on a 10 km circuit, dominated by sections of singletrack, pasture and logging trail. Select from 20 or 40 kilometer options. 1 lap beginner and kids categories offered.
Expect more hills and distance than a suburban cyclocross, almost no dirt roads but smoother surfaces than most MTB events..32-35c cyclocross tires would work well for the course, although MTB’s with 1.9 Inch tires will go well too. Climbing gears are recommended.
The BCX will take place two weeks before the CircumBurke MOUNTAIN RUN and MTB CHALLENGE, our other event which circles Burke and Umpire Mts.
