Vittoria is proud to announce its title sponsorship of the NECXS. Now known as the Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross Series, this year the prestigious race series expands outside of New England with a Supercross Cup added in New York State.
For years this cyclocross series has been heralded across the US as the best in the America. Top pros from around the country – and even from across the globe – come to Northeast soil to battle for the coveted overall series win. In addition to being the only official UCI series in North America, amateur racers are offered a chance to compete for series points in 10 categories as well.
“Vittoria Series organizer Adam Myerson has been a key player in the growth of cyclocross in the United States, and his vast experience is evident in this world-class race series,” Vittoria Vice President of Marketing and Product Ken Avery said. “The Vittoria Series is growing and we’re proud to be title sponsor.”
Vittoria Series staff are working hard to ensure both elite and amateur racers are offered a season of events unrivaled anywhere. Classic courses and more pro-only sections promise the races will be as fun to race as they will be to spectate. Partnerships with breweries and restaurants add up to fall festival events with a focus on local fare that makes the Northeast great.
“The Vittoria Series offers a World Cup experience to every category from amateur to pro,” Vittoria Northeast Cyclocross President and Organizer Adam Myerson said. “This series produces top American champions like Jeremy Powers and Ellen Noble, and with Vittoria’s support, it will continue producing champions for years to come.”
This year the Vittoria Series will feature four events total – three in New England and a new round in New York. See the updated schedule below.
