Due to unforeseen circumstances with land use and permitting, the final two races of the 2012 NEOCX series have been canceled. Thus, the series finale race will be held this Sunday – December 9, 2012.
The Team Lake Effect Throwback CX @ Broadview Heights will be the last race of the NEOCX 2012 season and, if you want to be in series contention, you MUST still race at least one of your seven (7) qualifying races in December. That means if you have seven (7) races and didn’t race last weekend, you MUST race this weekend to be a series contender.
An awards ceremony with beer and pizza will be held at Bike Authority following the conclusion of the A-race, thanks to the generosity of Sherman and Rudy.
We’re still planning a 2012 NEOCX Series awards ceremony and festivities, maybe at the Sokol Center on the 29th – the date the VeloCross race was originally scheduled. Stay tuned for more details.
Sorry for the last-minute news but stuff happens and as CX racers we all know that flexibility and adaptability are keys to success in this sport.
As disappointing as it is for these last two races to fall off the schedule, I’d like to once again thank the awesome promoters, sponsors, volunteers, teams, officials, racers, park boards, land owners and spectators who made this another amazing year of cyclcocross racing in Northeast Ohio.
Thought I’d be diligent and get in another NEOCX Series Update with the latest results as of 11/29/2012 before going into December.
There is still lots of great racing ahead and, if you want to be in series contention, you MUST race at least one of your seven (7) qualifying races in December.
The series requirement of two (2) December races has been reduced due to the cancellation of the VeloCross event on December 29. We’ll still have the NEOCX series awards ceremony and festivities at the Sokol Center on that day, just no racing.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is ready for the final push of excellent Northeast Ohio Cyclocross racing!
Yes, ladies and gentleman. I’ve done the brain grinding work of updating the NEOCX series spreadsheet with six – YES SIX – races all at once!

I love you. You owe me…
The 7th Annual Chagrin Falls Cyclocross Challenge flyer has been posted. This two-day spectacular has become a fun and competitive fixture in the Northeast Ohio Cyclocross Series and we are so happy this two day event (10/27-28) continues in 2012.
Remember – costumes for riders and spectators are encouraged. There will be a beer tent (21+), food, a great course with plenty of places to cheer/heckle riders, and as always – great racing.
Online registration is available at the USAC website and the course is open Tuesday 10/23 from 5pm until dark. The address is 7177 Bainbridge Road, Chagrin Falls, OH – and, if you’ve been there, you know what a great location and race this is.
Thanks to Brett Davis and family, Fast Track Cycling, Case Cycling Club and Joy Machine Bicycles for making this event possible!
Sorry I couldn’t make it to what looked to be a great race in Brooklyn yesterday. No tears in CX – but then again it looked like it was raining so who could tell…
Posted from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for your viewing pleasure – the Brooklyn CX Results.
The Wendy Park CX results are available on the 2012 Schedule and Results page.
Thanks to Team Spin and shop for putting on yet another tremendous race at this exciting Cleveland city venue.
If you have any modifications to the results, please contact the fine folks at Team Spin and they will help assess the changes.
Team Spin has issued an updated flyer for the Wendy Park / Whiskey Island CX race this Sunday, September 16.
No race or rule information has changed – the formatting was wonky when the last version was converted to PDF and that has been fixed.
