The Crown Jewel of the Mountain Bike season is back and better than ever. Set in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and a just outside the cultural mecca of Austin, Texas, the Classic is the first stop on the USA Cycling US Cup Pro Series presented by Sho-Air Cycling Group. The new four-race series is the richest purse in cross-country racing, and all four events will be sanctioned by the UCI as Category HC or Category 1 events.
Live Video Streaming!
The event, like all rounds of the US CUP, will be streamed free online at a dedicated page under USA Cycling’s YouTube page. The direct link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeTHuEp1L0c
The course is a mix of technical singletrack, with short climbs and limestone ledges that offer racers some technical and vertical challenges among adrenaline spiking dropoffs. The site is rarely open for public, so few racers will have a “home course advantage.” As the first race in the series, pros and media from around the world will converge on Austin as valuable World Cup points are on the line.
Cycling brands, exhibitors, and food trailers will show and sell on-site, accommodating a crowd of approximately 1100
Sponsored hot spots will be marked on the course for fan viewing, with giveaways, seating, and refreshments. Sponsors can customize these areas for brand activation.
Mellow Johnny’s will host a party at the shop with food, beverages, entertainment, rider interaction, and raffles.
