Hyattsville CX Now Part of MABRAcross

A couple quick notes to report from the offseason. The Hyattsville CX race raised $3500 for Special Olympics. Representatives from Route1Velo and race sponsor Arrow Bicycle presented a check to the organization at a Hyattsville city council meeting last month. Thank you to all the volunteers, spectators and racers that supported the race and made it possible for us to give back.

As a result of the great success Hyattsville CX enjoyed in its first year, the race will be part of the Mid-Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association's Cyclocross series. The BikeReg.Com MABRAcross series includes eleven races that take place in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. We can expect to see at least twice as many people on race day as we did for the inaugural event.
