All reports suggest that the 2016 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships were a tremendous success. Horst Spikes played a pivotal role. We had nine sponsored athletes medal in their respective events. This is fantastic and we are proud of their strong riding. They are great cyclists and ambassadors. Our cross spikes were a big help in gaining traction on a slippery course that had several steep run-ups, a set of barriers, and multiple off-camber turns. The cold and damp weather conditions were ideal for cyclocross. This course was a true test of skill and equipment.

The Asheville, North Carolina course got raves. Pat Cunningham and Wade Summers represented Team Horst Sports at the Masters races last Wednesday and Thursday. The Elite Men’s and Women’s races on the weekend were fantastic competitions. The live video coverage of the muddy course was very compelling.
