This year's Bikeman.com Casco Bay Cyclocross (#CBCX) will be the 8th edition. As cyclocross has gained popularity, the race has seen a steady increase in participation along with exciting additions such as the Kid's-only course. Slated for October 22 this year, it will once again follow Downeast Cyclocross, which is happening on Saturday, October 21.
