Cyclocross Hawke's Bay is proud to present the 2012 Specialized National Cyclocross Champs.
This is the first time cyclocross will be a official sanctioned BikeNZ event in New Zealand. BikeNZ have recognised the importance of having another form of 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.
One of our main focuses in Hawke's bay is the development of kids racing, called Bike-X. This is a free event for the kids, who all loved getting dirty in the mud!
