The Red Jacket Cycling Team is proud to present the eighth annual Keweenaw Cup Cyclocross Race, a two-day cyclocross extravaganza! Held in conjunction with the UPCROSS Points Series. The October 17 and 18, 2015, event again brings cyclocross racing to the Keweenaw. Prizes to be awarded to overall weekend champions in five classes.
All races are citizen races; a USA Cycling license is NOT required.
Both days of racing will again be contested in Copper Harbor, situated at the very top of Michigan. But this year, we’re flipping the venues around: Saturday’s Downtown Hoedown in “downtown” Copper Harbor, Sunday’s Top of the World Smackdown will be held at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, .
Racers, spectators friends and family are encouraged to make a weekend of the race and consider spending a night or two at one of the fine establishments in downtown Copper Harbor. Post-race festivities will again be held in downtown Copper Harbor. Stay tuned for details.
Proceeds from the Keweenaw Cup will benefit the Copper Harbor Trails Club, the organization responsible for the incredible network of mountain bike trails etched into the tip of the Keweenaw. It takes time and money to build the trails and acquire the land the trails are built on. And this is the Red Jacket Cycling Team’s contribution to protecting, preserving and expanding the trails.
