The Bradbury 12 course was fantastic - bone dry, which I like. I am much better at controlling a bike on dry dirt and loose gravel than greasy roots and rocks on corners. Dry or not, the course is so worn down at this point, it's rockier and root-ier in areas than I remember over the years.

2016 ushered in some major changes to the New England cyclocross scene. The bookends to "Holy Week" of CX, Gloucester and Providence were changing. The former was moving to a new weekend and staying at the same venue while Providence was switching to a new venue and keeping the same weekend. Providence was renamed to the CrossFest a couple years ago with title sponsorship by KMC. With the festival outgrowing Roger Williams park, the race was relocated to Thompson Speedway in North East Connecticut where land and venue charges were no longer an issue. What's more, the CX race course, vendor expo, and race support would be comfortably integrated among the vast motor speedway property.
