Urgent News. Friday night races in Athens at Southern Brewing have been canceled. If you had pre-registered refunds should have been issued through BikeReg.
Go enjoy yourself a beer at Southern Brewing or Terrapin tonight instead!
Privateer Cyclocross is proud to host the 2019 Georgia Cyclocross opener. We’ve listened to your suggestions from last year and, as dutiful CX enthusiasts, we have complied. The flyover steps have been “de-steepened”. We’ve added three sections of “A-line or B-line”. Take the A-line if you dare. HandUp Gloves will be hosting the party pit once again and we’ll have free beer and free food and free fun, as always. So bring the friends and family and get the season started off right at Old Gray Barn.
Check out their Facebook Event here.

The news is out! Jonathan Page himself is coming down to Georgia to lead a cyclocross clinic October 12-14th.
Jonathan Page is arguably the most decorated cyclocross racer America has ever seen. He won two U.S. Junior Cyclocross Championships and a U-23 Cyclocross Championship. In 2002, Jonathan moved to Belgium, the birthplace of cyclocross, to compete with the best in the world. He then went on to win four U.S. National Cyclocross Championships (2003-2004, 2007,2013) and a silver medal in the 2007 UCI World Cyclocross Championships. From 2002-2015, he podiumed every year of the U.S. National Cyclocross Championships. After an injuryplagued 2014 season, Jonathan proved he still had plenty of fight left—winning a silver medal at the 2015 U.S. National Cyclocross Championships (a flat tire holding him back from gold), followed by a number of podiums the following season.
We can barely contain our excitement! Cross is just around the corner and the unofficial opening of cross season with Brownwood Bike Rally in Atlanta has already happened. We can’t wait to see our cross family again next weekend and hope to see lots of new faces out there. A few things to note before the first race:
– We have a revised schedule with some new categories. Make sure to check the flyers!
– Just a little tease but we have shirts and hats coming this year! More details to come.
– There will be a drop race this year since there are less off weekends.
– Make sure your USA Cycling licenses are up to date before the first race and they reflect the category you want to race.

We can’t help but love all of our local GACX peeps! As cross is approaching we thought we’d share some wisdom from one of our own.
“Meet yourself where you are today without judgement” … And remember to fight like hell for a better day tomorrow”

We can’t wait to see the whole GRITS team out this fall!
