Northwest Arkansas plays host to Olympic qualifying event


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Northwest Arkansas will soon host a qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Some of the nation’s top cross-country bikers will make their way to Centennial Park in Fayetteville for the event.

Race director Ty Kady says the region will have an outdoor experience in the its own backyard. “We got other things from Stellenbosh, South Africa and Oberstauf, Germany. We’ve literally brought the world to Fayetteville,” Kady said.

The U.S. Pro Cup runs back-to-back weekends starting April 9th.
