“Gloucester is a special race for me. It's a true New England classic: the big, rowdy crowds always show up, the course is dynamic and challenging, and all the top riders line up. Historic, classic, and epic" - Jeremy Powers US National Cyclocross Champion
"There is something about that place. It's got a soul. I've been everywhere in the world that cyclocross races, and little comes close to the aesthetic drama of Gloucester."
– Christopher Zigmont, cycling industry representative (Boston Globe)
"The incredibly well-organized event and huge, energetic crowds of racers and fans make Gloucester an amazing weekend of racing. It's no surprise that it's called 'The New England World Championships.'" – Maureen Bruno Roy, Bob's Red Mill-Seven Cycles
