REGISTRATION OPEN FOR “OLD SKOOL” ZIPP OVCX TOUR OPENER

Registration has opened for the Zipp OVCX Tour’s season opener on September 14. The Cyclosport Cyclo-Cross at Riverview Park in Loveland Ohio, near Cincinnati, will be the first cyclocross for any of the U.S.A.’s major cyclocross series in 2008. The course will be a fitting challenge to start the year according to promoter Ryan Lindsay, “This course has a bit of everything to throw at you, pavement, grass sections, lots of off camber, and a classic lung-bursting run-up.”

The event will be a celebration of the fifth year of cyclocross racing at Riverview Park, and Lindsay and his fellow Zephyr Wheel Sports organizers are bringing something new and something old to the party. Before the first wheel has turned in the 2008 season, the Zipp OVCX Tour has already gained new-found notoriety as a big player – not only within the world of cyclocross, but also within the super-competitive confines of Midwest bike racing in general. One signal of how much anticipation the Zipp Tour has generated for ‘cross season in the Ohio Valley Region (which encompasses more land area than the entire nation of Italy) are the reports of shops in the region selling out all of their cyclocross equipment for the year by the end of July.

All of those new riders will need to be schooled in cyclocross however, as will many experienced riders who, like children, have forgotten all of last year’s lessons during the summer vacation. Taking advantage of U.S. regulations, the Cyclosport Cyclo-Cross at Riverview Park promises more than one set of barriers to educate riders quickly. “There’s no school like the ‘old skool’” quipped Lindsay with obvious anticipation.
