DCCX Offers Single-Speeders, Tandems, Rookies Their Own Race

DCCX, Washington, D.C.'s only cyclocross race, is offering first-time racers and single-speed riders their own event at the race on Sunday, October 24 at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Northwest, Washington. The Rookie Race is set to start at the end of the day of racing, with a 3:55pm start. All classes of single speeders will take off first, followed by tandems (if anyone is brave enough to sign up), and then last (but not least) come The Rookies. All the regular rules of the grass circuit will apply: a license or a one-day license is required and pre-reg will be encouraged once that opens up. Single speeders of any and all categories will battle it out for swag, tandems for the personal bonding and rookies will be awarded random liquid refreshments. The race will last 40 minutes. The Rookie Race is a perfect opportunity for commuters, weekend hobbyists and hipsters to give cyclocross a whirl. This is the event for someone looking to try riding around in the grass and mud without the stress of facing off against guys in team kits and carbon wheels. Unlike most cross races we expect to see lots of smiles, steel bikes, piercings and maybe even a beer handoff or two during the race. Other racers will be encouraged to hang around to offer unsolicited "advice".
