Crossroads Classic without Concord/Kannapolis
This year’s Giordana Crossroads Classic will be held in Mocksville, Statesville, Asheboro and Salisbury. For the first time in many years, there will not be an event in Cabarrus County.
Last year the event featured bicycle racing at the N.C. Research Campus in Kannapolis. It previously had been held in Downtown Concord, but construction of the new Concord Municipal Building at the corner of Market Street and Cabarrus Avenue disrupted the race course.
The race promoter said lack of sponsorship is the reason there will be no event in Cabarrus County.
Cabarrus Avenue closed this week
