Piscitello Law is excited to sponsor some awesome local cross classics plus a gravel ride in what will be our first fall racing season since COVID derailed racing. Read on to hear about our 2021 races: Crossasaurus Awesome, Brandywine Valley Roubaix Fall Foliage, Cooper River Cross and West Chester Cross Classic.
Short Season, High Spirits
The list of races in the northeast may be a bit lower than previous years but judging from the atmosphere of the recent #whirleybird cross race by @guyscycling, racers and spectators are ready to make the most of this first full race season after the disappointing 2020 race cancellations.
Piscitello Law Sponsored Races and Rides – Criterium, Cyclocross, and Gravel
Before we talk about upcoming races, we take a quick look back at August 29, 2021. QCW hosted the Piscitello Law Criterium at Rodale Park in Trexlertown. It was great to re-connect with the Crit scene and we hope to do more of that next year. Big thanks to Mike Black, Aaron Ritz, Joanne & Rich Trimpi.

Cooper River Cross – October 24, 2021
We’re going out of state for this one! Our favorite New Jersey Cross race is in its 9th Season and takes place in Cherry Hill at Cooper River Park. The 1.9 mile course is weaved into a very narrow strip of land along North Park Boulevard in Cherry Hill. It's the most accessible course around so the riders are on full display at every point of the race. Big shout out to good folks behind @CooperRiverCX: JeffAppeltans, LaraMarek and JimBernstein. We appreciate all that you do to put this family-friendly race together! Bike Reg info here:

West Chester Cross Classic IX (PACX) – November 7th, 2021
The final race our firm sponsors in 2021 is a long-time favorite, the West Chester Cross Classic. Now, in its ninth season, WCCX takes place on the beautiful grounds of Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show and Fairgrounds in Glenmoore PA. The 2.2 mile closed course will feature two sets of barriers and variable terrain that is mostly grass and some gravel. The entire course is visible from the promenade hill making it a fun event for family and friends. Can be chilly day, though and in prior years, “angry Bob” and crew have built a fire to keep spectators warm. 😊
