:: 2012 Specialized National Cyclocross Champs
Cyclocross Hawke's Bay is proud to present the 2012 Specialized National Cyclocross Champs, to be held on the 8th July, at EIT, Taradale.

This is the first time cyclocross will be an officially sanctioned BikeNZ event in New Zealand. BikeNZ have recongnised the importance of having another form of exciting cycle racing and have endorsed the national event for the first time. In the past Hamilton and Queenstown have run numerous successful National events.
BikeNZ have also gained a UCI status for the 2012 event. This is the first time a UCI cyclocross event will be held in Australasia. The UCI recently decided they needed to grow the sport on a worldwide stage, and with the strong growth of Cyclocross in New Zealand and Australia it looks to be a new breeding ground for international cyclocross talent.

With cyclocross in its first development stage's in New Zealand, we would like to ask for your support to help promote this exciting new winter sport. With 7 regions offering Cyclocross series racing of 4-6 races each, including a 5 race National points series. Hawke's Bay will hold the national champs, including an all-comers race for anyone wanting to try out this new sport. We will also be offering a 6 race regional series (see below), building on last years 4 events. One of our main focus's in Hawke's Bay is the development of kids racing, called "Bike-X". This is a free event for the kids, who last year all loved getting dirty in the mud!
