The newly-formed Washington Women of Cyclocross (WAWCX) aims to promote the sport and get more women on cyclocross bikes.
In order to showcase the sport of cyclocross, WAWCX announced it will host a cyclocross festival and a first-ever Women Celebration Race on Sunday, August 11.
Held at Saint Edward Park in Kenmore, Wash., the WAWCX Cyclocross Festival is an invitation for all women to learn about, experience and participate in the sport of cyclocross.
“The goal of the WAWCX Festival is to provide a welcoming environment to inspire, educate, and connect women to the local cyclocross community, cycling community and active women community,” said Kari Studley, event promoter and current Master World and National Cyclocross Champion.
