Cyclocross World Champ Vervecken to Compete at Whitmores Super Cross Cup

September 19, 2007 (Southampton, NY) – World Professional Cyclocross Champion Erwin Vervecken is coming to the two-day Whitmore’s Landscaping Super Cross Cup in New York on October 6-7. Not content with “only” having the richest women’s cyclocross in the world, promoter Myles Romanow has also significantly raised the profile of the men’s portion of the two-day international race with the signing of the Belgian Superstar.

It will be the first time a reigning World Cyclocross Champion has ever competed on North American soil.

Vervecken, a three-time Professional World Champion racing for the Fidea Cycling Team, joins last year’s Women’s World Championship Silver Medalist Katie Compton and a who’s who of North American stars for what is now undoubtedly the finest scheduled line-up for any cyclocross in North America this season. Also scheduled to compete are multi-time US cyclocross and mountain bike champion Ryan Trebon, America’s first international cyclocross star Tim Johnson along with his many-time Canadian cycling champion Lyne “the Canadian Legend” Bessette, and a host of other champions.

The Whitmore’s Landscaping Super Cross Cup is the only UCI-sanctioned cyclocross race in the state of New York. Held in the Long Island town of Southampton, the area is more generally known as “The Hamptons” and is famous for its “˜Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, so Erwin Vervecken should feel right at home when he visits. On the other hand, budget-minded racers and spectators have numerous affordable hotel options, most notably in nearby Riverhead which, perhaps prophetically, sits alongside Flanders Bay. The race organizers are currently working on a list of affordable accommodations for the hordes of domestic riders expected to enter the amateur classes as a result of Vervecken’s appearance.

Additional information on this development will be sent shortly. For detailed information on the Whitmore’s Landscaping Super Cross Cup on October 6 and 7 in Southampton New York, see BikeReg.com or call (631) 255-9568.
