RACE FORMAT
There will be at least 3 – 20 minute races with about 10-15 minutes in between and will run until dark so if you can’t make the first one don’t stress you can hop in the next one. We’ll have barriers, run ups, tight turns, and race scenarios. Starts – Clipping in your pedals straight to sprinting for the hole shot!

If you are new to cyclocross this will be a good way to get use to racing in a relaxed training atmosphere be jumping in to your first race.

If you already have expierence in racing cross this will be a good way to brush up on skills and have a mid-week training race.

The Ski Ward lodge will be open afterwards with fine offerings such as burgers, fries, and beer – so bring more $ than just your entry fee with you!

No categories, no prizes. Just pure cross on a challenging 1.5 km mostly grass course with barriers and some elevation. Mud is possible. Lots of turns to allow you to hone your skills before the real racing begins. This year’s course will NOT have as much lung-busting climbing as before, and will be bi-directional so we can mix it up a bit.

Starting this Wednesday 8/28/2013 and for the following three, September 4, 11 and 18.
