Drug testing at 360 Cup

Just wanted to let everyone know that at the 360 Cup race USADA was present and performed random drug testing on six participants.

This is part of USAC’s RaceClean program where Local Associations submit races from each region to be placed in a pool for them to choose from. 360 Cup was one of the CX races we submitted for them to consider.

I want to thank the 360 Team for being equipped to handle the testing on top of everything else they were doing yesterday to put on a great event!

Here is a link from USA Cycling on information regarding the RaceClean program
