We need to talk about your dog

362 days a year, we LOVE your dog(s). The three days that make up the Trek CX Cup are the exception. Please leave your dog(s) at home. If you have a cat, please take photos to post to Instagram before you arrive because they are not allowed either.

Can I bring my 20-foot-long pole with the massive flag?
