Falmouth, Massachusetts (Oct. 7, 2022) – The Pan American Cycling Confederation is pleased to announce that the Really Rad Festival of Cyclocross, hosted in Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA, has been selected as a replacement host for the 2022 Pan American Cyclo-cross Championships. This news follows an official release on Tuesday October 4th, outlining the cancelation of the event originally scheduled to take place in Costa Rica.

“We are thrilled to announce the Really Rad Festival of Cyclocross as the host organization for our 2022 Pan American Cyclo-cross Championships” said Josh Peacock, Interim President of the Pan American Cyclo-cross Commission. “The organization behind the event, in close collaboration with USA Cycling, were quick to respond and adapt following the cancelation announcement of the originally planned event in Costa Rica. Given the event’s reputation and calendar placement, the collaboration with Really Rad was an easy choice.”

“Cyclocross in New England has a long and storied history.” Said Adam Sykes, Race Director of the Really Rad Festival of Cyclocross. “The Really Rad Festival of Cyclocross is honored to continue that tradition. In addition to being the final race of the USCX, we are excited to add the 2022 Pan American Cyclo-cross Championships to our block of races.”

“We are honored to share the exciting news that the United States will be hosting the Cyclocross Pan American Continental Championships this year as part of the Really Rad Festival of Cyclocross.” Continued Brendan Quirk, President & CEO of USA Cycling. “USA Cycling was proud to play an integral part in securing this event and we are excited to add another high-level cyclocross event to the U.S.”

The 2022 Pan American Championships will take place on Friday November 4th at the Cape Cod Fairgrounds in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
