Hey Michigan and Northern Ohio racers, don't forget about the Cyclocross Race this Sunday at Veterans Park in Ann Arbor. The course is very challenging and great for spectating. If you don't have a CX bike, race your mountain bike.

A Race - 12:00pm
B & C Race - 11:00am

See you there!

Ah yes, Vets Park. As I recall, you could put in quite a nice 'cross course in that park. Actually, I bet that A2 is ripe with excellent potential 'cross courses. I looked at the flyer and it sounds like the C race is mtb only? Are you guys assuming that if you have a 'cross bike, you are serious enough to be a B?

IMHO Vets Park sets up into a classic CX course. There's a great run-up which starts in a wooded section, over some cement stairs and up out of the woods. The bike path from the ball fields up to the ice rink makes for a great paved climb. It takes me a 38*17 to make it up. Then there's some nice fast flat sections. Spectators can view nearly the whole course from the top of the paved climb, which also happens to be the finish line.

All of Ann Arbor will be celebrating this weekend after defeating Ohio State and a tough CX race on Sunday is a great way to clean out the engine after Saturdays celebration.

Sorry you'll miss it.
