2nd Annual Tampa Riverfront CX
The 2nd Annual Tampa Riverfront CX. Oct 12th & 13th, 2013. New ‘modernist, adventure playground cyclo-cross course’ on the Hillsborough river. Two days of CX racing, local craft beer, music & bikes!
Tampa Riverfront CX (#TRCX) is taking place at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park, right in the heart of the metro-downtown area. The new cyclo-cross course is being routed through this innovative, architecturally relevant example of 70’s civic park and adventure playground design. Hidden just outside Tampa’s central business district, Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park serves as one of few remaining examples of Modernist adventure playground designs pioneered by American architect Richard Dattner.
These ‘adventurous’ designs are precisely the elements of this park that have allowed for us to create such an interesting and challenging cyclocross course. In an effort to not only promote the sport of cyclo-cross, we also look to bring attention to this innovative, under appreciated piece of American civil/playground architecture that has helped to define Tampa’s urban landscape.
The 2-day Tampa Riverfront CX race weekend – a series of races and events that will help to bring attention to the connections between sport, public spaces, and our local communities.
