Cap City Cyclocross was established in 2007 by a group of dedicated racers that we sick and freakin' tired of traveling all over the state for quality cyclocross events. Since it's inception Cap City Cyclocross has featured 6 to 8 races based in the central Ohio area. Our goals are provide quality events with competitive and welcoming fields for men, women and juniors. In 2012 we established the Cap City Short Track MTB series and in this year, 2017 (our tenth anniversary!!!), we are including the Tour de Grandview in to our our race program.
Our goal is to provide quality racing at quality venues throughout the greater central Ohio area. We work with local USA Cycling (USAC) sanctioned clubs to actively promote a healthy and competitive racing environment. with the help of clubs, sponsors and volunteers we aim to grow the series every year by being inclusive, competitive, positive, excited and loving.
Constructive criticism and attention to detail is how we improve. We strive to offer courses that are both challenging and safe. In addition to quality bicycle races we are always looking for ways to get non-racers or riders to our events. Cycling is a beautiful sport and competitive cycling is equally as beautiful. We want everyone to enjoy it as much as we do. While it's true bicycle racing isn't for everyone, we hope what racers, and non-racers alike, feel welcome back after their first experience!
2017 marks our tenth anniversary and we have giant plans! We are expanding the cyclocross series to 8 races with 2 new venues! In early summer we will kick off the 5th annual Cap City Short Track MTB at Big Run park and in June we are proud to announce that cap city cyclocross will be promoting the 24th annual Tour de Grandview!
