Bruceton Mills Cyclocross V (iPO Event Id#: 10657)

[Overall Results] [Lap Times]

Past Coverage: [2004] [2005] [2006] [2007]

YES! We are Racing....
The snow is only a few inches and the course will be plowed down to the grass/dirt/gravel. There's a huge pot of chili on the stove and the cornbread is ready. Hot chocolate will be served along with cold beverages that will need no cooler. The bonfire is ready to light and the torpedo heater has plenty of kerosene. Come on out and win yourself a trophy!

Registration: Starts at 11am race day and will run up until the start of each event:

  • 12:00pm Men's Sport - 45 min. plus 1
  • 1:00pm Women's Sport/Expert - 45 min. plus 1
  • 2:00pm Men's Expert - 60 min. plus 1

(Depending on turnout, Men's Sport and Women's classes may race together.)

Entry Fee: is $20 for WVMBA members and $25 for non-WVMBA members(sorry, but insurance ain't cheap!) and will include a feeding (with cold beverages... and we promise an extra pot of chili this year) after the event.

Awards: Trophies awarded at least 3 deep in all classes. All proceeds after we pay The Man will be awarded back to class winners in cash.

Course: The race will be run almost entirely on the private property of Don and Heather Parks with gravel roads, open fields, a bit of motocross track, and a trip through the barn each lap. It will be roughly 1.5 miles in distance and is very spectator friendly. Almost the entire course is visible from the start/finish area.

Directions: Located roughly 4 miles north of I68 exit 23. (Note for those coming from southwest PA, taking 40 East out of Uniontown to Skyline Drive at the Summit Inn is a nice alternate route. See Mapquest link below.)
  • Take West Virginia I68 exit 23, Bruceton Mills, and get on Route 26 north.
  • Take your first left (not counting the gas stations/restaurants) into Bruceton Mills and cross a bridge with a waterfall to your right.
  • Take your first serious right (Mill Street and parking areas don't count) just a few hundred feet past the bridge. There are several arrows pointing to a church, fishing area, and a nursery at this turn.
  • Take this road for three miles (passing the fire station on your right) until it ends at a "T" and turn left.
  • Head to your 3rd mailbox (or set of mailboxes) on your right, 0.4 miles. There will be a silver mailbox and a green mailbox there and you will take a left on the gravel road across from the mailboxes. (You can find this spot on Mapquest here, but don't expect to see any road signs when driving there.)
  • Go past the trailer and barns and up to the top of the hill, maybe a quarter mile, and turn left onto the Parks Farm property.
