Cyclists took over the grounds of Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg on Sunday for Tacchino Cyclocross’ fifth race in the Super 8 Series.
Racing took place in the rain and mud, which made the race even more exciting for fans on the sidelines. Cyclocross is a form of bike racing that includes several laps and obstacles that require riders to quickly dismount, carry their bike while navigating the obstruction and remount. Sunday’s race included young riders in their first race to national champions and pros.
Warrenton’s Old Bust Head Brewing Company sponsored many fields with the top-finishers winning brewery tours and tastings, as well as other. Several Old Bust Head beers were available at the food and beer tent, which was catered by Salamander Resort & Spa.
The race was put on in partnership with local food bank Seven Loaves, to collect food for those in need. Seven Loaves had a tent at the race to collect non-perishable foods or monetary donations.
