Aotearoa 'Crossfest

Aotearoa 'Cross Fest (ACXF)

Huttcross is proud to be hosting Aotearoa Crossfest in August 2021. After a cancelled event in 2020 due to the global pandemic, we are looking forward to bringing a full weekend festival of cyclocross to the Hutt Valley for everyone across Aotearoa to enjoy.

This two-day event includes an allcomers Run What You Brung race, NZ Singlespeed CX & Tracklocross Championships, Mighty CX and KindyCross for the tamariki, as well as full-noise NZ National CX Championship races for Elites and Age Grades.

The first 50 entrants to the NZ CX National Championships will bag themselves a free pair of rad ACXF socks. Otherwise socks will be up for grabs at $25 a pop. Collect at Aotearoa Crossfest rego 14 & 15 August 2021.

If you are racing a non-UCI category (any Masters cat, Sport, U17, U15) you can race on a domestic licence or a day licence.
If you are racing any MightyCX category (U6, U8, U10, U12), NZSSCX, or Tracklocross you do not need a licence.

Licensing will open by 14 June 2021.
