This two-day event offers cyclocross fans and racers the experience of professional racing whether inside the course tape on professional level course or leaning over the tape cheering on their favorite racers.

The Course

The course at Ft. Steilacoom has been a staple to cyclocross in the Northwest since the 90’s.   Ft. Steilacoom has hosted stops on the USGP, NACT, and the Redline Cup.   What’s more, this course has been raced more times than nearly any other venue in the U.S.   The rolling and wooded terrain creates opportunities for riders of multiple abilities: those who can climb, those who excel on technical descents, and those who can power away on the flats.

The Riders

Riders from all over the United States and Canada will descend upon Ft. Steilacoom on November 14th and 15th.     Riders will vary in skill from beginner to international elite.   There will be racing opportunities for riders ages 10 to 60+.

The Atmosphere

Throughout the weekend, Subaru will be on-site showcasing their line-up of vehicles.   The Here and There Food Truck and Motofish Espresso will also be onsite serving hot food and beverage.   Easy course access offers spectators a wide range of viewing points along the 3 km course.

Race Age and Eligibility

USAC 1A14. A rider’s racing age for cyclocross is determined by the year in which the current season ends with the world championships (in this case, 2016). Take 2016 and subtract the year you were born. This is your racing age. For example, if you were born in December of 1990, your racing age is 26 (2016-1990=26)

The Elite Men events are open only to riders of racing age 19+. The Elite Women events are open only to riders of racing age 17+.
