GO Cross Cyclocross Race
Date: September 30, 2017-October 1, 2017
Time: 07:30 am - 05:00 pm
Location: Fallon Park
Professional cyclists from around the country will converge on Virginia’s Blue Ridge for the chance to get their hands on a $10,000 total purse in the inaugural GO Cross Presented by Deschutes Brewery in Virginia’s Blue Ridge at Fallon Park on Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
Cyclocross can be described as a bike race in a steeplechase format with riders that hop on and off bicycles while leaping over barriers and sloshing through mud, navigating gravel pits, stairs, and barriers. The event is an official USA Cycling race, which will draw professionals from all over the country. The Roanoke Outside Foundation and East Coasters Bike Shop are organizing GO Cross.
The “in-field” activities will include a Deschutes Brewery craft beer garden, food trucks, a beer mile running race, kitschy yard games with the Deschutes “FUNraisers,” drawings for everyone with prizes from Trek Bikes and East Coasters Bike Shop, and of course heckling.
