Last year, racers from more than 20 nations competed and competitors included the world’s top-ranked men and women as well as multiple national and UCI world champions. Winners in 2016 were Sophie De Boer of the Netherlands and Wout Van Aert of Belgium.
CrossVegas is a Category 1 event on the 2017 international cyclo-cross calendar and according to its director, Brook Watts, this year “Cross Vegas has returned to our roots. We are focusing on an exciting and fun time for spectators and serious racing for all categories at the high level of intensity you expect at CrossVegas.”
Balancing out the intense sportsmanship will be a full-fledged festival with food and beer vendors, sponsors offering complimentary swag and a cross section of people of all ages from Las Vegas and around the globe.
Perhaps no US city is better equipped to host an event like CrossVegas than Las Vegas, “the entertainment capital of the world.” The spectacle of CrossVegas – taking place under the lights with multiple course features designed to challenge racers and provide maximum spectator entertainment – is uniquely suited for Las Vegas. During the same week the city hosts Interbike, the largest bicycle trade show outside of Europe. CrossVegas provides a showcase for athletes and sponsors in front of the crowd of 12,000, including many bicycle industry representatives.
General Admission Tickets are $15 and VIP Tickets are $100 and include parking, dinner, adult beverages and an optimum place to catch all the action on the course. Gates open at 3:00 pm; first race at 4:00pm. CrossVegas is fun and appropriate for all ages; children age 12 & under are free. For more information visit www.crossvegas.com
