SERIES INFO



2017 Indy Cross Series


Indy Cross is a local cyclocross series offering five race weekends here in Indianapolis. This series is designed as a fun, grassroots series catering to all types of racers. Most importantly Indy Cross is designed as a relaxed but competitive race series with an encouraging and fun atmosphere that should cater well to the beginning racer that wants to experience cross racing in an welcoming environment.


Beginners who may be considering racing cross but do not own a cyclocross specific bike are always welcome to use mountain bikes and should find this a perfect race/venue to find mentors or just try out a race in smaller, informal setting.

All categories require a USA Cycling Racing License. Annuall licenses can be purchased at USA Cycling. One Day Racing Licenses ($10) are available at each event for $10.
