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.

My Goodness, the Schwag!

The good folks at County Cycles in Roseville have upped the ante! This complete Bianchi Pista (55cm), along with some other schwag, will be given away to one lucky Red Barn CX participant. Who says you can't give a track bike away at a cross race! All race participants are eligible, however, you must be present to win! The drawing for the bike will be held after the A race is complete.

Costume Contest

The best costume in each race (C, B, & A), will be judged by the one and only Mark Kotz. The wearer of the best costume in each race will be the proud recipient of a $30 gift certificate to County Cycles. There will only be one prize per race (men and women will not be judged separately). In addition, it is rumored that large amounts of candy may also be included in the prize list!

Clarification (added 9:17pm) - To be eligible for the costume contest you must complete the race in costume.

Single Speed

While we won't be offering specific single speed categories this year, we are impressed by the increased number of yahoos riding them ;-) Based on the number of riders this year, we will likely add a specific single speed category to next year's repertoire.
However, we have decided to offer a great prize to the top single speed in each race! The top finisher on a single speed in each or race (A, B, & C), will be awarded a Surly Jethro Tule! We through this 15mm wrench/bottle opener would be appreciated.
