We’re set to begin the 2011 Exergy USGP of Cyclocross Series this weekend in Sun Prairie, WI. Defending series champion, Jeremy Powers, and the Team’s young gun, Zach McDonald, will represent the Team at the Planet Bike Cup. Traditionally the weekend is raced under warm temperatures and dry conditions, but similar to the 2011 edition of Cross Vegas, the competition will take place under cool, cloudy conditions with a threat of rain. While the weather is uncertain, there is no doubt about Jeremy or Zach’s racing form at the moment. Both riders have posted solid results so far this season, with Jeremy notably taking the victory at this week’s Gateway Cup in St. Louis, MO. Jeremy and Zach will be supported by team staff: Brian Dallas, Tom Hopper, and Jeff Rowe.

Be sure to stop by the Rapha-FOCUS area this weekend to cheer the boys on and pick up their new rider cards.

For those of you not able to make it to the Angell Park Race Track, catch the races streaming LIVE on cyclingdirt.org.

The guys race at 4:00 PM CDT (UTC -5, 5:00PM EDT, 2:00PM PDT).
