Future Cross to benefit juniors
BEND — Honey Stinger is sponsoring the Junior cyclocross races at Future Cross on Sunday, Sept. 23, at Seventh Mountain Resort. All proceeds from Future Cross benefit the non-profit CXmas Junior Fund, which awards travel scholarships annually to juniors attending the US National Cyclocross Championships. This year’s championships are in Madison, Wisc., in January 2013.
Future Cross will have races for all categories, including Beginners and Juniors, as well as a Kiddie Cross race for kids 9 and younger. Juniors 10 to 18 will race in two-year age groups, and all Junior racers will receive a Honey Stinger Organic Waffle.
“It’s great that a company like Honey Stinger, which is concerned about using organic ingredients to make quality energy foods is stepping up and supporting junior racing,” says Powered by Bowen owner Bart Bowen, the promoter of Future Cross. “It’s good to teach juniors about proper nutrition and how it can lead to good sports performance.”
