SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Interbike will work with the North Carolina Cyclo-Cross organization to produce a 'cross race at this October's Fall CycloFest in Charlotte, North Carolina. The race is expected to have one of the largest purses for a cyclocross (CX) event on the East Coast, and also will include an Industry Cup category for members of the bike industry. 

"NCCX has a reputation of putting on first-class cyclocross events in North Carolina, including a high-profile UCI-sanctioned event in Hendersonville," said Pat Hus, the vice president of Interbike. "This event will be special with an incredible amount of industry support from the brands that will be exhibiting at CycloFest."

The race is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte.

Tim Hopkin, the founder of NCCX, said, "We're excited to partner with Interbike to help make CycloFest a major event in our state.

"The U.S. National Whitewater Center is a great venue, and we'll put together a challenging course that all levels of racers will enjoy."

The CycloFest will be open to the trade on Oct. 20-21 and to consumers on Oct. 22-23. More details on the race will come later this spring.
