Race director of 2022 Cyclo-cross Worlds resigns

April 22, 2021

In a surprise announcement Wednesday, Brook Watts will be stepping aside as the race director for the 2022 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships, as well as the 2021 World Cup, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

The move, effective immediately, comes just three weeks after Watts issued his opposition to a statewide bill, SB-354, from Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson that would ban transgender girls and women from school sports teams which aligned with their gender identity. Cycling News
