Where to Ride

  • Amateur cyclocross racing in Germany this fall – OK, so this is going to target a relatively small group, but we’ve just found out recently about a few amateur cross racing series taking place around Germany this time of year. First up, the Genesis sponsored 4-race NRW Cross Cup is taking place around Düsseldorf & Cologne, starting this weekend: RadsportvVrband-NRW.de Then, there is the Munich Super Cross which started off as a Rapha event a few years back and continued to grow into a whole weekend of events, and has been adopted by the city on Munich, kicking off in a weeks time: CSchwalben-Muenchen.jimdo.com And lastly, the 8th annual Cyclo Cross Cup hosted by Veloheld from Dresden to Berlin, which gets under way October 22nd: Veloheld.de So get out and get some grassroots German CX racing in!
