At the Diablo Cycling end of the year banquet last year,
Race Director Bob Anderson proposed the team put on a cyclocross race.
As a guy that watched the team's cyclocross participation grow from three guys grasping to their youth a few years ago, to about ten “regulars”, I must say I felt a shot of adrenalized excitement.
On October 8th, 2017 the Diablo River Cross was born!
With Bob’s direction and the combined efforts of the team, family, sponsors, and friends, race #3 in the the Hinterlands Cyclocross Series was a huge success.
The unique course was at Sunset Park in Kimberly, WI and included:
Recyclist Bicycle Company from Kaukauna WI,
Kimberly Park and Recreation for hosting the venue,
Tanner’s Grill and Bar for providing food, live music, and course set up help,
Stone Arch for providing their award winning beer.
