Breaking News: USGP Cyclocross Series Registration on Hold
Is the USGP cyclocross series potentially in jeopardy? The Exergy Cyclocross USGP race series registration for the opening Sun Prairie event has been put on hold after several delays, prompting racers trying to register to start asking questions. The cyclocross community has been buzzing all day trying to understand the potential implications, if any, on the series, their events and the 2012/2013 cyclocross race calendar. As of this morning, not only was registration for that race not opened, but no information on any USGP event could be found on BikeReg.
Cyclocross Magazine has learned that the USGP cyclocross series has considered its options about canceling the season’s races and suspending the series. Calls to Joan Hanscom, the Series Director, were not returned. The series’ title sponsor, Exergy, has recently faced financial trouble and has defaulted on cycling sponsorship payments.
