The Red Barn Cyclocross Classic is one of Minnesota's premier cyclocross events and a rider favorite. The course twists and turns through the tree fields of Erickson Brothers Tree Farm and includes a run-up you won't forget.

Improvements all around

Course Addition
The new section on the course is shaping up nicely. We finished clearing stumps and now just need to do a little rock clearing, cut the grass and do a little fine tuning. The new loop takes advantage of a greater part of the ravine near our run-up and crosses a stream bed. The stream is dry most of the year, running only in the spring and during heavy heavy rains. We thought crossing a stream would be cool, but there will probably never be water in this one in October. In any case, it adds some fun and exciting terrain.

More Prize $$
In addition, we've upped the A race prize money. Red Barn has always felt that people race because they love it, not because they might pocket a few bucks - although that never hurts. Thus we've upped the ante - The A race prize money now goes 5 deep at $50/40/30/20/10. As always, we still have a number of great give-a-ways and arguably the best medals around - not to mention the free hot dogs!
