Practice

The Wisconsin Cyclocross Series does not run regular practices, but some practices are run by individual race organizers or teams of volunteers.

It’s raining today. Is practice cancelled?

Mud is kind of our thing. Thus, most practices are run in all weather; however, to find out if a practice has been cancelled, please contact the associated organizer.

If you would like to add your practice to this page, feel free to send it our way.
