The Austin Cyclocross Cup Series latest news!
Once again we will partner with Rentsch Brewery. This time they are becoming our presenting partner! In 2017 our series pass will return. You will be able to register for both events via one transaction and receive a nice discount.
We are excited to announce that this year’s series, we will utilize race|result’s active transponder system to enhance your race weekend experience. These transponders are the current scoring/timing standard being used by our friends, North TX CX events and will be used at this year’s state championships. The race|result system will provide lap times (very cool), competitor position details for race officials, timely onsite results posting and real-time/live scoring via the web.
You will be assigned a unique tag at race registration for each day of racing. Austin Cyclocross Cup Series and it’s partners/sponsors will be funding the rental of all transponders as an added benefit and enhancement to your race experience! Please make sure to thank them and support those who support our sport!
