Category: Cyclo-Cross

Airgas-Safeway's Chris Horner may compete in some cyclo-cross races next fall. He is interested in trying.

"I'm working it out with Marin Bikes right now to set up some 'cross stuff, and we'll see how much Airgas-Safeway as a whole, because I think there are a few kids who do it, too, wants to get involved,” Horner said.

Horner lives in Bend, Oregon, which has hosted the national cyclo-cross championships multiple times. And the Cyclo-Cross Crusade series are hosted in Oregon. The series brings in 1,200-1,500 competitors each race for its amateur and pro events.

“I've got a new big RV rig, so if the kids want to come we've got a place to stay at the races,” Horner said. “We've got a place to stay warm, get it going good and put on a show for the fans. I like doing 'cross.”
