Rain didn't dampen the debut event for cyclocross racing in Northwest Arkansas. Racers competed Sunday during the second day of the FayetteCross cyclocross races at Centennial Park at Millsap Mountain in Fayetteville.
Cyclocross is a hybrid, rugged-brand of off-road competitive cycling. The track was 1.75 miles and includes barriers that the riders must maneuver, as well as a flight of stairs that requires riders to dismount and carry their bikes. It also offers three sections through the woods and various surfaces of grass, gravel and dirt.
