Trek Midwest Team and 801 W. Madison Cycling teams welcome you back to beautiful Waterloo Fireman’s Park for the 8th annual Battle of Waterloo CX!

The course will include many of the features from past years that you love, including the “Lion’s Mound” (commemorating the actual Battle of Waterloo), with a few new twists & turns to make it exciting. 

Free for juniors and first-timers

We’ll have FREE Registration for Juniors (9-18) and First Timers, so bring your friends and convince them try it out – mountain and gravel bikes are welcome!  Reach out with any questions!

Great merchandise prizes sponsored by Trek Bikes and HUGE CASH PAYOUTS for top finishers in many of the categories!

We will have a Trek/Bontrager merchandise & nutrition prize for one random rider in each race!

On-site eats

Waterloo’s Paradiddle’s Cafe will be on-site at 9 am serving up hot, tasty coffee as well as yummy pastries.  Waterloo’s Monroe Street Pizza will also be at the park serving up delicious slices and grain bowls!

Fireman’s park includes a large indoor shelter with spacious bathrooms and a bar serving cold beers on tap and broadcasting the Packers vs Saints game at noon.

The Trek Bikes Hype tent will be at the top of the hill, playing some tunes, with fun hand-ups and other games for the kids!

Great spectator course and lots for your family to do – eat, drink, spectate and play on the playground near the course.  Bring your cowbells!   

We hope that you’ll join us and have some fun at the Battle of Waterloo, just a few miles from the Trek Headquarters in Waterloo, WI.
