Go to the UCI World CX Championships for FREE!

Raleigh USA and Cyclocross Magazine have teamed up to make a cyclocross fan’s dream come true- sending one winner and their guest on an spectacular trip to see the 2013 UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville, Kentucky.  That includes airfare, lodging, and VIP access to the event.  If you are picking up what I’m putting down- you’ll notice the VIP access.  VIP access=a good place to see the event and I’m going to venture to say- the Dirtbag’s favorite thing- drink tickets!

Taken from the Cyclocross Magazine site:

How do you win a trip for two to Worlds?  Simple! Just send us your dream cyclocross obstacle (not the actual obstacle but a text representation, picture, or video will be fine).  Something new, something exciting, something that might just find its way onto a course at say, SSCX on Thursday night at Worlds, or SSCXWC next year in Philadelphia. A giant mud pit? The slime guns from SSCXWC? Maybe obstacles inspired by Wipeout? Once we gather all of the entries we will pick our favorite and award the creator with a trip to Louisville!

We will take your cyclocross obstacles any way you want to send them to us.  Here are some examples of how you can submit your design:

  • Just write about it
  • Send us a picture
  • Have arts and crafts time with your kids.  Nothing screams cyclocross like a marshmallow/toothpick barrier
  • Create a video while riding your “obstacle” in your local park
  • Heck, scribble it on a napkin and send that in.

Have another way you would like to submit your obstacle? Drop us an email with your idea, it’s probably fine. Email your design to (include “Raleigh Contest” in the subject line).

Submissions are due Tuesday, January 15th and a winner will be announced later that week.

Lastly, your submissions cannot be previously published or published before we announce the winner.  This includes posting on blogs, social media, or YouTube.
