The new Georgia Cyclocross Series webpage is up! http://www.georgia-cross.com It's never too early to think about CX.

JUNE 08, 2003 - With overall series prize list of $3,000 for 2003 series, the series will draw even more riders. All races will be in Georgia! We are planning 7 races with several new venues. The course design standards will continue to ensure the venues will more closely reflect the USCF & UCI standards.

The following is the preliminary schedule:

Nov. 1 & 2 - Dallas, GA
Nov. 8 - Macon
Nov. 15 - Southern Poly
Nov 22 – Peachtree City
Dec 7 - Norcross
Dec 14 – Athens (State Championship)
The final schedule will be posted by September.
Here are the highlights of the changes for 2003 Series:

We have expanded the categories to include a separate Cat 3 & 4 / NORBA Sport races and overall series winner.
We formed a Group D with NORBA Beginner, USCF Cat 5, U18 (Cat 4,5 only) & Women. The women will have a staggered start within Group D which is designed to give the Women a separate race. The Verge Points Leader jersey will continue in 2002. State Championship jerseys will be presented to the 2003 winners.

2003 Rule Changes

We have made a few important rule changes for 2003. Here are the highlights:

Scoring will go 10 deep in each category.
All U18 riders with a Category 1,2 or NORBA Expert License must race with Group A except the State Championship race.
All U18 riders with a Category 3/4 or NORBA Sport License must race with Group C except the State Championship race.
Only series points will count towards "The Bike Shop" Team Championship. We will not award single points to racers that finish outside the top 10.
Make sure you check out the complete rule on the Rules page.
