ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Over one thousand cyclocross racers from all over the world were in Rochester on Sunday. They were here for the second annual US Cyclocross series which was held at Genesee Valley Park. The sport originated in Europe in the late 1800’s, and combined road cycling with mountain biking.           

“There’s only six of these in the US and Canada at this level. We have riders coming out from all over the country, and some from Europe, to race on a course that’s about two miles long, and do repeated laps on it. It’s kind of a cross between running and cycling,” said Scott Page, Executive Director, Rochester Cyclocross

The series will next make stops in Roanoke, Baltimore, and Falmouth.
