Plus 3 Virtual Cyclocross Challenge

Joe Fabris and the very energetic & fun loving bunch at the Plus 3 Network will be kicking off their Virtual Cyclocross Challenge this Sunday at CCCX Series. The BASP Series will also be a part of this unique virtual cross challenge, which includes training rides as well as races, all via the magic of the interweb.
I highly recommend you get involved with this program where your miles logged on the Cross bike will move you up a virtual leaders board, all while raising dollars for charity, and having a chance at winning some cool prizes.

Plus 3 Virtual Cyclocross Challenge
Ride Cross. Do Good for You. Do Good for Charity. Have Fun. Wash and Repeat.
There is a new national Cyclocross series that any rider across the country can ride in, and this virtual cross challenge includes training rides as well as races, all via the magic of the interweb.
Plus 3 Network (, the free website that - through corporate funding - turns every ride into a fund raiser is teaming with Sponsors Pedro’s, SRAM, Ritchey, and the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross to provide a podium that rewards Cross rides deep into the pack. Cross riders simply need to log their rides on the free Plus 3 website to play. And when a rider does that, Plus 3’s corporate sponsors turn every Activity into money for charity.
Plus 3 and local neighbor CXMagazine ( will post the weekly leader board based on cyclocross mileage logged by the riders on Plus 3. At the end of December they will award a unique five spot podium that rewards players deep into the pack. The Podium will go to riders in 1st, 13th, 26th, 39th, and 52nd place with great cross specific rewards from Pedro’s, USGP, Plus 3, SRAM, and Ritchey. See the Podium Rewards
“Cross is a one of the greatest ways to ride a bike,” noted Joe Fabris, co-founder of Plus 3 and aspiring cat 4 cross racer “and we are excited to work with our cross-crazy sponsors to reward the muddy bloody fanatics that enjoy cross in the Fall.”
