    Cyclocross in Utah?

    Hi all- I posted this in CX but it was suggested that I cross-post here as well..

    Due to a fortuitous twist of life, I'm relocating from the DC area to Park City UT. Out east I was pretty active in the Masters CX scene but am definitely a MTB rider who does some CX, not the opposite.

    As I pack up, I'm looking at my (n+1) pile of bikes and am wondering if the CX rig is going to be used much in UT. Looking on BikeReg I don't see too many SLC area races- is there an active scene that I'm missing?

    I suppose having a CX bike will never *hurt* but space is going to be at more of a premium and I have a lot of bikes...

    Thanks!

    Guy

    The CX scene is very big in Utah.
    I guide and rent bikes in Northern Utah

    UTCX is the 'main' series in the area - mainly in the SLC-Ogden swath. 12? events this year, non-USAC as long as I've been participating, although there's been rumors of going that direction. https://www.facebook.com/UtahCX/ is unfortunately the best option, their official webpage is less-than-useful.

    (I raced in UTCX from 2007-2011 or so, and then came back this year. The events were smaller than I remember, more expensive, and no raffle/schwag unless you're on the podium. :/ )

    Another group put on two USAC races this year, a state championship race and an early season one - https://www.facebook.com/2015utahcxchamp/

    There's also the "Southern Utah" series - | Cross racing when everywhere else is covered in Snow

    I heard a rumor that an agreement had been made to alternate years for a USAC state championship between the Ogden folks that held it this year, and GRO running it around St. George.

    Last but not least, P-Town is a weeknight series running events in the Provo/south-SLC-valley area: https://www.facebook.com/weeklycrossseries/
