Awa Cross is a joint venture of Cycling Whanganui and the Whanganui Mountain Bike Club to bring Cyclocross Events to Whanganui.

So what is Cyclocross?
It’s a form of bicycle racing which incorporates mixed terrains, different surfaces and obstacles in a short circuit completed multiple times. Riders can dismount and push, lift or even run with their bikes. It tests all aspects of the rider’s physiology and with spectators close to the action in a party like atmosphere it is a heap of fun!
