Red Barn #5 - October 31st 2009
While the forecast for Saturday is clear, the wet weather and Red Barn's challenging course will make this year's event epic!
This is a Red Barn you don't want to miss.
Red Barn #1 - 2005
The first year was a great success for Red Barn and the 95 riders that showed up got the first glimpse of what Red Barn has become famous for - a twisting and turning course through the tree fields and our signature run-up. The riders loved it and our event has grown ever since!
Doug Swanson (Trek/VW) and Aric Hareland (Salsa) battled it out for top honors with Swanson pulling away for the win. Linda Sone (Hollywood Cycles) rode away with the victory for the women.
Red Barn #2 - 2006
In 2006, 104 competitors took part in the 2nd annual Red Barn CX Classic. The course added a new dynamic with the addition of a fast section through the neighboring Wildwoods Campground.
Bjorn Selandar (Alan Factory) took the victory in the Men’s event with Linda Sone (Hollywood Cycles) repeating in the Women’s event. Linda was the first competitor to win back to back Red Barn titles.
Red Barn #3 - 2007
The 3rd annual Red Barn CX smashed its participant record with 163 riders taking part. The costume contest started to take off and we introduced our now annual bike giveaway.
Doug Swanson (Grand Stay) was able to ride away from the field for a convincing win. This win makes Doug the only male to win twice at Red Barn. On the women’s side, Linda Sone (Ridley Factory) continued her string of dominance and won her 3rd consecutive Red Barn title.
Red Barn #4 - 2008
Red Barn #4 proved to be another record setting year with 190 participants and over 200 race entries. In four short years Red Barn doubled the number of participants – we must be doing something right!
This year's course added some length, winding through the vineyard at Erickson Brothers Tree Farm. Dewey Dickey (Iowa City) broke away from the field and rode away with the men’s race. Linda Sone’s dominance was broken by Jenna Zander (u/a) who took top honors in the women's event.
