Syracuse Bicycle Cyclocross Festival
Syracuse Bicycle, Empire Farm Brewery, and Pointway Coaching are proud to bring you a full weekend of great racing this August to kick off the cyclocross season!
Saturday and Sunday, August 24th and 25th
EMPIRE FARM BREWERY is the largest Farm Brewery on the East Coast. Over 22 acres were developed for educational and beer production purposes. Boasting a new 60 bbl automated brewhouse, the Empire Farm Brewery is producing kegs and bottles for regional, national and international distribution. Located in Cazenovia, NY, the property also grows hops, lavender, vegetables, herbs, and fruits for use in the brewing process and to support the needs of Empire’s downtown brewpub.
SBCX will NOT be a grass crit. It will offer a nice mix of grass, technical sections, elevation changes and some classic CX features that the beautiful grounds at Empire Farm Brewery offer. Plan on an exciting course crafted by Tim O’Shea of Pointway Coaching that will leave you challenged, but happy.
We highly encourage pre-registering, but certainly understand that some racers need flexibility, so race day registration will be available, but will close 30 mins prior to the start of the race. An additional charge of $10.00 for day-of-registration. Food and drink available for purchase. Bring the family for this extremely spectator-friendly event!
Parking at Empire is very limited and we must respect our host and NOT commandeer all of their parking! So please if you see a sign directing you to park at the Lorenzo Historic Site (neighboring property) please respect that and follow directions. IF YOU WANT TO DROP STUFF OF AT EMPIRE, feel free, just make sure to park at Lorenzo if direct to by signage.
–You must have a USA Cycling License or purchase a one day license for $10.00
