The course "architect" has been working hard this year on a lot of new things ready for you to love and/or hate...

Come out for a great Halloween race weekend

Come join Zealous Racing for a SPOOKTACULAR weekend of Cyclocross racing on October 28th and 29th!  The course is located by the Altoona Aquatic Center in Altoona, IA.  It is very spectator friendly with many areas to watch a lot of the action.  There are some new additions this year our course designer has added to make it, as always, a fun, flowy, challenging course.  Newest addition this year will be the Costume Race on Saturday!

Many consider cyclocross to be a steeplechase with modified road bikes on a 2km course over hill and dale; others consider it muddy hell. Its roots can be traced to the early 1900s, when French army private Daniel Gousseau would ride his bicycle alongside horseback-riding friends through the woods. But it's also an immensely popular winter race discipline, guaranteed to get you fitter (and muddier) with an exceptional atmosphere to boot.

Like triathlon, cyclocross mixes multiple athletic endeavours, namely riding and running, with a strong emphasis on skillful bike handling. The pace, barriers, climate and technical aspects of the course weed out the weak and make for good theatre. Spectators with horns and cowbells provide a festival environment, especially in Europe.


If you like bikes, beer and lots of mud, cyclocross is for you(BikeRadar.com)

Sounds like fun?  Come out and see for yourself!

Please join us for a fun Halloween race weekend!
