Series Info

The NWA CX Series is a six-race series perfect for elite riders and newcomers alike! Held in six unique venues across the Northwest Arkansas region over the course of three months. Come experience the best-loved, most spectator-friendly form of bike racing.

Cyclocross is the fastest-growing discipline in bike racing. Why? The races marry the intensity of a criterium with the bike-handling test of a cross-country mountain bike race. As the cliché goes, it’s the hardest race you’ll ever love.

BikeNWA is working with various local race promoters to pull together this series in an effort to grow the sport of cyclocross in Northwest Arkansas. Each race is in a different town — Lowell, Springdale, Johnson, Fayetteville, Bentonville, and Avoca. It culminates in the Arkansas State Championship in early December. If you’ve ever been curious to try cyclocross, this is the perfect opportunity. Juniors race for free, and beginners race for a discounted entry fee. If you’ve ever been curious to try cyclocross, now’s the time!

“We are excited to bring more diversity to our event season by supporting the growth of cyclocross and provide the opportunity for more people to experience the magic of Northwest Arkansas,” says Paxton Roberts, Executive Director of BikeNWA, the organization behind the event. “The race courses will offer a challenge for beginners and experienced riders alike.”

Overall points for the six-race series will be awarded. Racers can track series points across the six races on the leaderboard here on the Oz Cross website. Stay tuned for an announcement for overall series awards!
