SHIMANO CYCLOCROSS SERIES
OCTOBER 28th, 2023
CYCLO X Valmont - October 28th, 2023
Race number four in the series heads to Valmont Bike Park. This venue has it all; the 5280 staircase, multiple deceptive sand pits, and enough climbing to help those breakaway attempts! Last year this venue played host to the Colorado State Championship, and now it moves to the decisive race at the halfway point in our series!
