Event Info

Racing:

All races are held at the Eagle Bike Park:

Racing takes place in 4 heats. Your race heat is determined by your USA Cycling Cyclocross category and potentially age. See our schedule page for more information on heat times and categories in each heat.

All bikes are welcome to race. For safety reason, all handle bars must have bar plugs and mountain bikes can not have bar ends. When there is snow on the ground bikes with tires greater than 3″ wide are welcome to race, but will not be scored due to potential unfair advantage. No motors.

Expo Area:

The Idaho Waffle Cross Series isn’t ‘just’ bike racing. It’s about having a good time for the entire family. We have hot, fresh made, Belgium waffles and Clairvoyant beer on tap at all our events. Waffles are traded for your donation and Clairvoyant beers are available for $3 each. If you’re a racer of appropriate age, the first one is free. All donations and proceeds from waffles and beers are donated to our charitable partners.

Since 2011, IWCX has raised ~$12,600 for local charities, ~1800 pounds of food, and ~$2500 in bikes and bike parts.

Our expo booth space is reserved for our sponsors. If there are spaces available after sponsors have reserved their space, they will be available on a first come, first serve basis for a fee. If you are interested in booth space in our expo area, please contact us.
