This weekend get set for frugal fun! The USA Cycling Cyclo Cross Nationals are being held in Verona, at the Badger Prairie County Park, and admission is free!
Cyclo Cross is a European invention from about 100 years ago, where elite racers battle the elements (it is January in Wisconsin!) and the track which can be muddy, wet, sticky, rock hard and more. Riding up and down stairs, jumping hurdles, going over bridges, and who knows what else, the racers will be giving it their all.
