First, you need to take a look at this:
Now, with that said - you will understand why I'm throwing not one but 2 races this week! Maybe even one next week too, since it just changed so it's raining through next Wednesday (stopped at Tuesday an hour ago...).
Here's the deets:
Name: Cross Club #10 aka The Noah's Ark Race
Date: 4/30/2009 (That's this Thursday!)
Time: 8 pm
Start/finish: Lamar Ped Bridge
Distance: In the 10-18 mile range
Slop: God, I hope so.
Advice for homework: Know the Shoal Creek trail. KNOW IT. I'm done holding hands, my friends. Time to step it up.
Added Bonus: A copy of Cyclocross Magazine to the first 20 attendees - spectators and racers.
it'll be nice on friday, so check this out:
and depending on which city you are in, the extended forecast says saturday will be a nice day for this:
and if you are in college station, it might still be a bit rainy for this (better map at the race):
and when john rensho and i get back in town on sunday, time for tacos, more rain, and this:
Name: Cross Club #11 aka The first one with barriers
Date: 5/3/2009 (That's this Sunday)
Time: 6 pm
Start/finish: Undisclosed at this time - likely NOT at the ped bridge
Distance: Probably "sprint" distance. That does not mean drag racing, just probably short and vicious.
Prizes: Probably so.
Slop: Should be a total nightmare if it really T-Storms for the rest of the week. At least it will be warm-ish. hehe
Advice: Get a lot of sleep and carb up. I'm throwing a wrench in the works this time. It's time to see what everyone's really got.
that's right, folks. five races this week between thursday to sunday. various weather patterns lend themselves to various types of races and rest assured, you will see me at every single one (besides the drungo's race, cuz i will be in college station.)
have a fun time! be safe! holla!
