Fort Nugent Park :: Oak Harbor, WA
In December 2016, the Cascade Cross Series is returning to the welcoming city of Oak Harbor and the unbelievably nice venue of Fort Nugent Park for a December double-header! Bring your kids to experience the amazing playground. Bring your cyclocross bike to experience the adult playground that is some incredible & challenging city park terrain. It is always interesting, and that stays true in both directions! One way Saturday, the other direction on Sunday for the WA State Championships!
If you didn't make it to the perfect debut in 2014, go read the race report from TheHoleshot.ca, complete with an excellent photo gallery (where the images you see here were sourced).
Watch for more information closer to race weekend on the Whidbey Island Bicycle Club blog.
Start line address:
2075 SW Fort Nugent St., Oak Harbor, WA 98225
A pleasant 60 minute drive from Bellingham with beautiful views of Whidbey Island and Deception Pass!
Only about 60 miles from Seattle if you take the Mukilteo ferry!
In the park this year! Brought to you by Flyers Brewery.
Bibs & Chip Timing:
Red Tent is providing timing both days but will supply fresh bibs and chips each day. They will be clipped off as soon as you cross the finish line. They will be reissued on Sunday, no matter what. Please do not try to keep and reuse them! You'll mess up their system.
Kirsten Jenson and Kristi Berg are back for their final LIV/Queens of Dirt Women's Cyclocross Clinic on Saturday! These have been quite popular at previous Cascade Cross races and really help boost the women's fields at 10:30. Get your race warmup on with these skilled & friendly ladies!
Restaurant & Lodging Deals:
We have several special local businesses stepping up to welcome cyclocross into the Oak Harbor community!
Flyers Restaurant & Brewery will be serving soup, burgers, and hot dogs at the event. After the event, they will honor a $5 gift card given to all customers of their food cart!
The Best Western is setting aside 20 rooms for the rate of $89/room. Reservations are first come, first serve! After Dec. 1 any rooms unreserved will be offered to other customers. Just say you're with the bike race!
Candlewood Suites in Oak Harbor is offering a special rate of $89 per night (normally $120 or so) but will not withhold any rooms for us. Just say you're with the bike race!
For Sunday, Flyers will be supplying a receptacle to State Champions to be filled for free at the brewery! It will be a pint glass for Cat 4/5 and growlers for Cat 1/2/3. Other prizes from Port Townsend Cyclery will be given to Juniors. We will award them at the Registration table after race results are finalized.
