*** Updated for 2010 ***
The 2010 Colorado cyclocross season has been going for a little over a month. We thought we would update some numbers. Boulder Racing had there largest race ever at with 584 starters. Compare that to Oregon Cross Crusade which had over 1400 starters for the first race in the series!
The 2009 Colorado cyclocross season is in full swing. The numbers seem descent but are they? Looking at the numbers for the first two 2009 Boulder Racing Series and the Valmont Bike Park race and the numbers are slightly down.
Compare Colorados cyclocross scene to Oregon's cyclocross scene and there is no comparison. The Oregon Cross Crusade series has well over 1200 racers per event where the Colorado events are a little over 450.
- Why are the numbers so different? The Denver Metro area is similar in population to the Portland Metro area.
- What aspects does the Cross Crusade events have that the Colorado events don't?
- Is it a cultural difference between the two communities that makes the cyclocross events less intimidating?
