It’s Race Week!

Lost Trail CX – Sunday, December 16, 2012 – Louisburg Cider Mill 10 am – 3 pm

This is a busy time of year for everyone, but the Chain Gang is looking for some help this weekend. We know the majority of you don’t race, but we could use a good turnout on Sunday. Spectators are free to attend and watch some great racing. We may be biased, but our course and venue are the best of the year, and we would really like every participant to remember Lost Trail as the best race of the year!

To make that happen, we need a large and loud crowd of spectators. We will have a fire pit to keep people warm, hot cider for $1, smoked meat and sides for sale and a fun day planned. Kids can race for free at 11:45 so bring their bikes and helmet. Any questions, please reply to this email.

If you have questions or would like to volunteer, contact us here. The latest race info can be found on our Facebook page here.

If you’d like to race, just show up at least 30 min prior to your category race and register.

New Events and News

MiCo Velo Board of Directors will be meeting this sunday, Nov 4th, at 6:30 pm at Nighthawk Winery. We will ride to the winery and back after the meeting. All are welcome, lights and helmets required. While there we will discuss the possibilities of a spring Winery Tour to some of our local favorites.

Lost Trail CX – December 16th, starting at 10:30 am and races last until 3. Louisburg Cider Mill’s property.
So, we have decided to host a cyclocross race. What’s that you ask? It’s off road racing on road type bikes, set up on a 1 1/2 mile course. Racers must go as hard and fast as they can for a set time, usually 30 min to an hour. Various ‘obstacles’ are placed around the course and riders must dismount, run with bike, then remount while still in motion. In other words, it’s a blast! It’s also a great spectator sport with the short course and multiple laps. Come on out and watch, volunteer or race. More details will come soon…but if you want to see what cyclocross is, check out some of the YouTube videos.
