Get Off the Couch Relay

New to 2018 is a 4 lap relay, so collect a team of up to 4 riders. There are some of you that have been riding the couch hard lately - it is time to ride some CX. This is a "Fun" ride on the junior course, so let's make the most out of it. Gather a team, make a grudge match, and get on a saddle. Make a corporate challenge - family challenge - team challenge - or personal challenge. There is no fee for the relay, but we do have to cover the $2.75/rider cost - please help as you can.

Team Area and Expo

We have a team row assignment process. Please send a request Lina lina@boulderjuniorcycling.org.


The 2018 Schoolyard Cross is at the Alexander Dawson School. This course is known for its challenging terrain and fun features. We are earlier in October this year. The course is designed for spectators, so come out and watch while the riders put on a tactical display of suffering over the course. Great mix of grass surfaces and paved surfaces mixed in with a few bumps. The course features a lot of flow along with a bit of vertical.

The Team and Expo Area will include food from the French Twist (No Glass!).

Schoolyard Cross is known for it's themes. This year it is a harvest theme. Check in at Facebook for updates on our cider press (apples are scarse this year, so the press may not be present), bake sale, and pickle contest. All categories are welcome.

SchoolYard Cross is back to the namesake venue - the course is tough both physically and tactically. Here is a course map to see how it will go. 2018 School Yard Cross J9-12 Course Map
