51 Weeks!

By | #2019CXNATS, 2018, Cyclocross

We are 51 weeks away from hosting the 2019 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Lakewood, WA at Fort Steilacoom Park. The planning has already started, we have designed and tested some core elements and flow lines to the course, and the excitement level is already simmering. While the bulk responsibility to pull this event off lies with Tacoma Sports Commission and MFG Cyclocross, we will need tremendous support from our local cyclocross community for the nation to fully understand how phenomenal the scene is here in the Pacific Northwest. To that end, here is the call-out for the ways you can support the 2019 US Cyclocross National Championships from December 5th to 17th, 2019 :

Generally:

  • Volunteer at least one day during the week of setup, racing or tear-down.
  • Race a non-championship and/or championship event during the week. We want to show the nation the strength of our racing participation.
  • Spectate as you can during the week but please come out in big numbers for the championships races on Sunday, December 15th. We need your enthusiasm on course and want massive energy pushing the riders and coming through the live-stream. Bring at least three non-cyclocross racing friends / family to the races on Sunday!
  • If we need to do some fundraising to support course improvements understand the need is real and make a small contribution as you can.

Specifically:

Staffing:

  • Event Coordinator – We are looking for help managing and planning non-racing events during the week.
  • Volunteer Recruiter / Coordinator – We are looking for a person to recruit and allocate volunteers to needed positions leading up to the event. This person will also communicate with volunteers up to their work day. We have a Volunteer Director on board who will work with volunteers at the venue to insure assignments are executed properly.
  • Junior Party Planner – We are looking for an individual to own the Saturday night party for Junior racers.

In-Kind Support:

  • Lumber for two flyover bridges
  • Labor to build two flyover bridges
  • Sand for sandpit
  • Lumber for sandpit sides
  • Loan of high speed copiers
  • Loan of ATV for medical support
  • Loan of Gator with bed or ATV with bed for course setup and maintenance
  • Loan of Jobsite Offices for Staff Office and Live-Stream Production Room
  • Loan of RV for Staff Offices (if above not available)
  • Loan of 20′ x 20′ event tents with sides
  • Loan of Fire Pits (Mike and Bryne Black!)
  • Donation of Fire Wood

Non-Racing Events:

  • Have ideas for non-racing events during the week? Make suggestions.
  • Want to put on a non-racing event let us know.

We have an amazing cyclocross community. All together we can make the 2019 US Cyclocross Championships a special week in our community’s history.

 

NW CX Cup #5 & WSBA CX Championships

By | 2018, Cyclocross

MFG Cyclocross is putting two more races on this weekend which includes the conclusion of the NWC CX Series and the State champs the following day. You should consider playing bikes as it is another chance before 2019 natz to perfect those sections that intimidate you. Unfortunately we weren’t able to cut in or place all of the upcoming features for 2019 US CX Nationals, but don’t dismay. It’ll be demanding and entertaining anyways.

So with that>>>The WSBA Cyclocross championships are Sunday December 2nd at Fort Steilacoom Park! Junior, Senior & Master categories will be competing for WSBA Cyclocross championship jerseys & medals.

Thanks to support from WSBA partners Absolute Mortgage and JLVelo, the category winners at every WSBA championship race this year will be awarded a champion’s jersey at the race finish.

All Washington, North Idaho and Oregon members are eligible to win WSBA championships, including gold medals and the championship jersey. All USAC/UCI and one day licensed riders are eligible to compete in WSBA championship events. However, racers from areas outside the USAC-defined geographic designation of the WSBA and one day license holders are not eligible to be awarded medals or championship jerseys.

As part of their partnership with the WSBA, Absolute Mortgage offers the following discount to all WSBA members. Receive a $1000 closing cost credit when buying or refinancing a home. Call Craig Walker (206)999-5600 and mention you’re a WSBA member or login to approvedbycraig.com.

Preregistration is open for both races until 11/29/18 at 8:00 PM. Sign-up here:

2018 Cyclocross Race Timing Chip Policy

For the 2018 cyclocross racing season, MFG Cyclocross, Cross Revolution, NW CX Cup and Wednesday Night Worlds will be using the Dual Tag timing chip. If you already have a timing chip from a previous season please have it tested at registration at your first race. If you need a new chip it can be purchased for $5 at Registration and is guaranteed to work for 1 season. In future seasons, chips must be tested at the first race and if they don’t work, a new chip must be purchased.

Please note, this is not a rental charge. The chip is yours to keep. This cost is a direct pass through cost to Center Event for materials and labor.

Chips will be sold on site at each race.

Timing Chips and Bib Numbers:
If this is your first race of the series please stop by Registration to pick-up your bib number and purchase your timing chip.

Both chip and bib must be worn during races. Please make sure you use your MFG Cyclocross series number. Riders not wearing a timing chip or a bib number will be disqualified. Timing chips are to be mounted to the helmet.
Numbers are pinned on the jersey on the back of the LEFT shoulder.

Riders racing two categories will be assigned separate bib numbers and chips.

Tent Setup:

The Start / Finish stretch will be in the grass to the left of the main road we usually use for the Start / Finish. Tents will be placed in the grass to the left of the road along the Start / Finish stretch between the road and the split-rail fence. You will be able to drive right down the road to drop off your tent. Please drop your tent off quickly and park your car in the main parking. There will be some traffic on this road getting to the parking adjacent to the soccer fields.
