- We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and had a chance to catch up and spend time with your family and loved ones.
- Our man with the mic Kenny Labbé went to Region Riot CX with Torch and even though he was off the clock, he still tweeted out pics of all the podiums. Congrats to everyone who raced and kept the engine running.
- Next up, the CCC finishes up with the grand finalé and Illinois State Championship at Montrose Harbor. Just like every year, let’s make a day of it. Come out early, stay late, and let’s finish up the series in style.
Spidermonkey Cycling is continually adding information about #MontroseCX to its landing page, but look for the full race preview here on Thursday.
Parking spots at Montrose are going fast. We will try to accommodate paying for parking on race day, but guarantee a close spot by adding to your checkout when you register on BikeReg by Thursday night.
- At Montrose we’ll have George Armstrong taking rider portraits (for free). George was at the Intelligentsia Cup this summer and you can check out his work here.
- While the series will be over and the series overall winners will be determined on Sunday, we’re going to push the end of season awards party back until after the holidays (final date TBD). With USAC CX National Championships being held 12/11 – 12/16 in Louisville there just aren’t enough weekend hours to fit it all in before the holidays. We’ll look to have they party sometime in January, perhaps somewhere in the city. More details as soon as we figure them out.
- And finally… while the 2018 CCC series racing will be over after Sunday there’s still one very important (perhaps the MOST important) CX event… Afterglow – AlterNats! This year the event returns to Douglas Park Sunday on 12/9/18 and online pre-reg is now open. Be there!
