Rolling on the River 

Grab your morning coffee and make your way to Green Belt Park on the banks of the Mississippi Sunday, November 11th, for the 21st annual Outdoors Inc. Cyclocross Championship.

The event is a test of strength and endurance that requires bicyclists to race around the greenbelt, cross up and down hills, and dismount to run and carry their bikes over barricades. It's fun to watch, it's free to spectators, and the backdrop of the Mississippi River can't be beat.

Green Belt Park is across from Harbor Town on Mud Island. The races begin at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. On Saturday, November 10th, at 1 p.m. there is a clinic with two-time U.S. National CX champion Frank McCormack of Boston.

Outdoors Inc. Cyclocross Championship, Sunday, November 11th. Registration for riders: 8 a.m., Green Belt Park, Mud Island.
