Staging in events with 1/2/3 Racers (Open, Masters, Single Speed) 
use Cross-Results for online registrants!

 the only cyclocross race in Washington, DC, 
has quickly grown to be one of the largest Cyclocross Races in the Eastern United States,with ~ 850 registered racers and over 50 undercard. Kids can compete on  a separate course (free). The venue and courses are designed to create a fun, family-friendly spectator environment, in addition to a challenging race course. Admission to the venue is free.  

In 2014, DCCX is now a TWO-DAY event!!  That's right, we have been asked for years to provide two days of racing and the time has come.  Two great courses have been laid out for two awesome days of racing and spectating.  Both courses offer challenges yet to be experienced over the last seven years of DCCX.  The CXHairs team has partnered up with DCMTB to pull off this two-day party of cyclocross.  Be sure to check them out athttp://www.cxhairs.com/.

This year Oskar Blues will be on hand with a variety of their craft beer offerings including Dale's Pale Ale, Mama's Lil' Pils, Old Chub and others.  Come enjoy their "can-in-hand" culture as well as some of their special kegs.  The beer garden will be the place to be in 2014. 
Staples Corner Liquorswill be working with Oskar Blues to once again ensure that your refreshment needs are satisfied.  Come out and pair an Oskar Blues with food fromDC SlicesBaja Fresh, the DC Dutch club and others to help keep the party going.  Other Sponsors include Terra Lawn and Landscape,  Family Bike ShopSonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar and DrinkMore Water.  DCCX has an exciting new partner this year: Rose Physical Therapy Group. They'll be out there, offering FREE 15-minute assessments. More info to come: http://www.rosept.com/

Each year following DCCX, DCMTB donates thousands of dollars to benefit the retirees who live at the Armed Forces Retirement Home. In 2013, this donation went to the Friends of the Soldiers Home. Members of this organization and others provide valuable volunteers assistance on race day- if you would like to pitch in as a volunteer (e.g. course crossing guard, parking facilitator, clean-up crew) If you'd like to volunteer contact Raul Rojas at rojasrau@gmail.com
Major course preparation is done by Terra DC Landscaping.   We are very grateful to the Armed Forces Retirement Home , site of President Abraham Lincoln's summer cottage, and the AFRH residents there for allowing us to use their beautiful campus each year.

    Please note that there are several modifications from the standard Super 8 CX daily schedule:
    - Rookie race for Cat 5 men and Cat 4 women (Saturday ONLY)
    - Single speeders are split out from the 35+ event
