(WDEF) Hub Endurance Multisport Shop located on the Northshore in Chattanooga, has partnered with Village Volkswagen to sponsor the Tennessee Bicycle Racing Association (TBRA) Cyclocross Championship Race on Saturday, December 14. The event will be located at Greenway Farms in Hixson, TN. American Dudes and Total Health Chiropractic serve as dual-presenting sponsors for the championship event.
TBRA’s Director of Points, Bill Parsons explains, “Cyclocross is a fun fast growing sport. The races are held during the fall and winter months. The courses are short loops and each category rides laps in 30/45/60 min time allotments. The cyclists need to traverse through sand, mud, barriers, and other obstacles.” Bill continues, “There’s a lot of enthusiasm for Cyclocross growing around the state. The Chattanooga area is a huge source of energy so we’re delighted the city will be hosting this event.”
Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville, and the Tri-Cities area competed against Chattanooga for the championship event; they all have been hosting their own regional series.
Last year, Hub Endurance organized a pair of successful Cyclocross events at Greenway Farms in Chattanooga. The North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy (NCCC), who owns and operates Greenway Farms, has extended the same invitation for this year’s state championship.
“It’s great to have NCCC on board for the event,” said Andy Sweet, owner of Hub Endurance. “We’ve developed a great relationship with the organization and look forward to showcasing Greenway Farms to athletes across the state.”
Hub Endurance held weekly Cyclocross practices in October at Greenway Farms. Following the practice series, team members of Hub Endurance’s competitive Cyclocross team presented NCCC with a check to support the not-for-profit.
