Columbus, OH Cyclocross Practice

2011 Columbus Cross Practice begins 8-16-2011

Cyclocrossers of the greater 614 area code unite!

Practice for the 2011 season is set to begin on August 16, 2011 behind the the Value City Arena/Jesse Owen's baseball stadium. We plan on starting at 6pm EST! So if you're available to help set up, please be there by 4:45/5pm. I'll have the gear, you just need to show up and help make a fun course.

There are some changes this year, so listen closely. . .

For starters practice is going to be free and there will be NO USA Cycling license required to ride the mock races. What I'm saying is; RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK. We're hoping to be more friendly towards new and beginner racers. You local pros shouldn't be discouraged from coming as we'll have the same set up as last year; two different races starting 30 seconds apart.

Secondly, keep a close eye on the blog as the practice venue is going to change week by week. We are planning on keeping these practices as close to the center of the city as possible. Worthington was a great venue, but more localized venue(s) will allow more time to race and tear down before the fall sun sets.

Last, but not least, the practice sessions and mock races will be 100% jerk free. The Cbus 'cross practice crew reserves the right to relegate or ban anyone acting like jerks. These practices are for learning purposes, we don't need to teach anyone to be a jerk.

Keep an eye on http://crossbus.blogspot.com/ Columbus!

The season is slowly sneaking up on us. Hope to see everyone in two weeks time!

Yo,

It's on for tomorrow night (8.16.2011). Practice will be held on Fred Taylor Dr. just behind the Jesse Owens Stadium off of Lane Ave.

MAP!

Come around 4:45/5pm(16:45/17:00pm) to help set up. Mock races start about an hour later. Come out if you feel comfortable and are ready to have some fun.

Yo!

Just a heads up, we're heading out to the OSU drainage ditch again for another edition of 'cross practice. As always, I'll be showing up at 4:45 to set up, feel free to join. We'll start mock races around 6:15 and go until sunset.

Map

Can't wait to get out there again!
