Raleigh's Midsummer Night’s Cyclocross

July 21, 2011

Suncadia Resort – Nelson Dairy Farm

Roslyn, WA

Raleigh Bicycles and MFG Cyclocross are kicking off the cyclocross season two months earlier than the rest of the country with Raleigh’s Midsummer Nights Cyclocross in conjunction with the Raleigh Retailer Summit at Suncadia Resort in Roslyn, WA on July 21, 2011. This rare summer cyclocross race starts the cyclocross season early, yet boasts one of the top prize purses for any domestic cross race this year, with a cash and merchandise prize list exceeding $40,000. For the Elite Men and Women’s races, Raleigh Bicycles will have a “pro contract” on the table for the top finishing rider without an existing contract for the 2011/2012 US UCI Cyclocross Season. In addition to the Elite Men & Women and Raleigh Retailer races, there will be amateur races starting at 2:00 pm for all ages and abilities including a singlespeed category with the Men and Women both racing for a winner-take-all prize pack including a Raleigh RX Carbon SS frame, $250 cash, and a travel allowance to also race for Raleigh for the coming season.
