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.
