Is this your first race?

At GP Jo Van Deraffe, first‑time women* race FREE. Don't pre-register. Just show up to registration an hour before your selected race and we’ll take care of the rest.

There will also be a free cyclo‑tots race for kids under 8.

*(W/T/NB-inclusive)

Pre‑register and save

If you are NOT a first‑time woman, you may want to pre‑register. This will save you as much as $10 and makes less hassle for the officials on the day of the race. Pre‑reg ends on Wednesday, October 17 at midnight.

We made a registration walk‑through, which may answer some questions along the way.

If you decide not to pre-register, you can still join us on the day of the race. Show up an hour before your race with $45 cash ($25 race fee + $10 day‑of fee + $10 1‑day license).

I'm registered, baby!

Once you’re registered, make sure you're prepared for the race.

RSVP for GP Jo 2019 on Facebook if you want, and let your friends know where the fun is going to be.

Video

Our first two races were held at the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, WI, but this year we'll be on the Trek Factory grounds in Waterloo, WI, home to Trek CX Cup, one of the Cyclocross World Cup races.

Enjoy a look back at the previous years.
