The Waterloo Cycling Club presents the first annual KWCX, finally bringing cyclocross racing to the Region of Waterloo. The race will be held at Bingemans, a family-oriented facility, in central Kitchener on Saturday, October 27.

Jason Pollard, WCC President, said, "The Waterloo Cycling Club, one of the largest cycling clubs in Ontario, has put together a great team to bring cyclocross racing to KW. Cyclocross racing or CX is one of the most spectator friendly forms of bike racing as it is held on a closed circuit in a grassy field. We encourage the community to come out and watch."

Mark Weymouth, Course Designer, said, "The course will be challenging as well as rider friendly. Racers will be complete laps around the fields at Bingemans, through the sand pit, and up a few climbs. It will challenge the best and allow those new to cross racing to have a great time. CX is about having fun, after all."

Alain Francq, Sponsorship Director, said, "We are proud to have Gemini Motors Subaru as our Title Sponsor allow us to have cash prizes for the top categories. Thanks to Adventure Guide and Waterloo Brewing all categories will have prizes and beer!"

A food truck will be on site and Bingemans will be serving beer on tap to service our riders, post-race, and the crowd.

Race registration is online, in advance, for $35 until October 18, and $40 thereafter at Race day registration is $60. Spectators are welcome to watch for free. Heckling racers is part of cyclocross, and we encourage everyone to come out and have some fun.
