Our little local free CX race series is underway here in the Black Hills. One of the shops (Acme Bicycles) picks out 3 local parks, flags/tapes/marks the course and we have races at 3 pm on Saturday and then 10 am on Sunday. Everyone helps tear down the course markings when it is over (helping keep it free) and it is SUPER fun! So, 6 races over the course of 3 weekends.
The turnout so far has been GREAT (for here anyhow) with more than 30 people racing in each race with racers from the very serious to kids doing their first CX race.
My races have been WAY better this year. Last year, if I only got lapped by the fastest guys I was happy. This year, I've got 3rd in one race and I got 4th yesterday (in the "B" class...I'd probably still be DFL in the "A" class, but at least I'm not getting lapped *^) ).
Anyhow, who's putting their Psychlos (or other CX bikes like me) through the paces this year?
