    Would have loved to have a rookie class last year - great idea.

    Tandem sounds crazy, I'd love to see some of that!
    I'm gonna try CX racing for the first time, unfortunately my local circuit seems to have dropped the beginner class and my out of shape fat butt will be in the 4's.

    I will be doing Tandem

    With the GF don't expect us racing, just riding around. She isn't into trainning, or getting used to jumping on and off the bike. So we will take it as it comes, putting platforms in back so she doesn't have to deal with toe clips, or learning clipless pedals. The bike will have 42mm tires on it.

    DCCX registration is live!

    let's get some more tandem's and singlespeeds in there.

    also- any rookies looking to try the race should get in there (so tell your biker friends!). good for anyone who is still figuring out what this crazy 'cross thing is all about!

    Just out of curiosity, why the limit on single speeds and first timers?

    -the total field limit is 100 racers to make scoring easier on tired officials. it's harder for them to score 3 digits rather than 2.

    -the rookie field is limited to 40 so that they can have a mellower, less chaotic alternative to the 100+ racer fields in the am.

    -the SS field is limited so that they don't take up the spots we wanted to have available to rookies who might not know to rush to register

    how popular the races are this year could affect how we set things up next year. it's a bit of an experiment.

    Fair enough. I like that the beginners race late in the day. They're always first in the races around here, and it isn't unusual for the courses to be adjusted after the beginners discover the particularly dangerous parts. They also get grouped with the unicyclists. We like chaos.

    Holy hell. I am so out of shape and slow but somehow my clouded mind just took over and registered for the rookie race. My first race ever on a bike.

    God help me and I better start getting some miles in. Should be fun (in a painful way in which I expect to get dropped off the back and DNF)!

    there will be other rookies in the same boat- non-racers not in great shape that came to our clinics
    it's gonna be fun, though it will be hard, too!
    talk some friends into doing it with you!

    yeah, this isn't Oregon. the officials seem a lot more squeamish. as for the curse, ours gets beaten in and better over the course of the day, and the beginners will have the sweetest track this year.

    Q: What do you call the Lanterne Rouge in a rookie's CX race?

    A: telebianchi


    I'm registered. I haven't been in any race of any sort since track & field day at summer camp in 1980. I'm going to hurt. I'm going to die. I'm going to have fun.
    May your tires or beer never be flat.

    Telebianchi - I'll be a shortish, not-very-slim guy on an old red hardtail mountain bike in the rookie race. Say hi if you see me. Or maybe we'll see each other off the back of the pack. Ha!

    Black/White/Red Fuji Cross. I'll be the one on the ground searching for my lower left lung lobe that got puked up after the the second lap.

    I'll ping you the week before the race. My girlfriend is coming along to cheer me on but only because she heard that Dogfish Head is one of the beer sponsors (just another reason I love her).

    lokerola,

    I figured since I was going to be down there anyway, I should get into two races. So I'll be running the 10:00am cat 3/4 35+ and then again in the Rookie race. Based on weather forecasts, I'll probably be in a plain white long sleeve jersey for the early race and a blue & orange BikeMS jersey for the rookie race. I'll send you a message with my phone # to call or text.

    Been practicing my dismount/mount on an open soccer field. Not as difficult to do as I thought. If I can hit the mount cleanly 25% of the time in the races, I'll be pretty happy with myself.

    See you Sunday.
    May your tires or beer never be flat.

    There are CX unicycles?
