CremaCycles STXC Championships Bike Festival Willingen

CremaCycles proudly presents the 2012 STXC Championships at the Symptex Bike Festival in Willingen. Utilizing the MTB Test Parcours at the festival, riders will not only have to beat the competition, but will have their riding skills put to the test on this super fun and challenging course. 2011 saw some great elbow on elbow racing starting with the opening heats and all the way into the super thrilling finals. This year not only be the guys putting on a great show, ladies will also get in on the action as well as we will be crowning both a Men’s and Women’s Champions.

Short Track Cross Country (STXC) is a shorter, more explosive style of competition on a track less than a kilometer in length with bank turns, jumps and other obstacles. It’s a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and mountain biking, with a high-paced format that is very spectator friendly. Riders compete in heats, with the top finishers advancing to the next round and eventually the finals.

For 2011 there was a broad spectrum of riders who participated and filled the top spots in Willingen , from cross-country racers to gravity specialists. The STXC Championships are open to all riders, competitors will ride through a series of heats trying to qualify for the finals. The top 3 finishers from each 3-lap heat will advance to the finals. There will also be a last chance qualifier where we will take the top 2 from those who didn’t get a direct ticket into the finals. A five lap final will then determine the STXC champions.  Registration will be available online up until 13.06.2012, riders can also register directly at the Bike Festival registration office up until 1 hour prior to the start of the first heat.

Come and take part in fast-paced racing action for bikers and see why short track is one of the fastest growing type of competition.
