CYCLO X Harlow Platts- September 9th, 2023
The 6-race Shimano CYCLO X Series is back for its 24th edition! The action starts at race #1 Harlow Platts! The Harlow Platts venue is set against the stunning flatirons, making it the ideal race to bring family and friends out for that weekend picnic as they watch the action. This course is primarily a grass lovers paradise, but we have some surprises this season, and don't forget about the never ending sand pits on the back stretch!
