September 22, 2005 – The Aurora Cross now in its seventh season, has quickly become Canada’s premier cyclocross race. Held at one of the best venues for cross around. It is a fantastic course with fast descents, tight off camber turns and plenty of challenges. This is also one of the best venues for spectators, with the ability to see 90% of the course from the hillside.
This year the Aurora Cross is event #8 in the 11 race Southern Ontario Cross Series. One of the Largest and longest running cross series in the country. And becomes Canada’s First UCI cross races. The race course is located in Beautiful Downtown Aurora Ontario, just 45 minutes North of Toronto, And accessible from both Hwy 400 & Hwy 404.
In 2004, the Aurora Cross was host to the Ontario Provincial Championships at the end of November, and saw the largest rider turnout in the Country. This year’s event is the day following the Canadian Cyclocross Championships held just 35 minutes away at Hardwood Hills in Barrie Ontario. Together the Aurora Cross and the Canadian Cyclocross Championships make up the biggest weekend of cross racing in Canadian History.
