‘Cross Season Schedule Announced

August 3, 2010

It’s not as exciting as when the brackets are announced for March Madness, but this morning the Ontario Cycling Association announced the preliminary cross schedule for this year.   Part of my goal this year for Team CarboRocket is to start racing cross and not finish last.  Well my goal is a little more ambitious then that, but baby steps!

While there are some races outside of my area (I live in a city of 3 million, and don’t own a car), the first local race is October 3.  That gives me a few months to learn how to actually ride Cross.  For 31 years of my life I thought the point of riding a bike was to stay on it and to pedal.  Now, I’m learning that I’ll have to get off, jump over stuff, and then get back on and pedal.

I’m a little concerned that my nice Team Carborocket jersey is going to switch from being black and white to black and brown after all the mud.  But, it will be a colour that I’ve earned, and that’s key!

    I’ll have to see if they’ve announced the one for Saskatoon yet – if not I’ll have to come and be one of the people who comes in behind you in some of the Ontario races

    David, I can’t even tell you how excited I am for cross. Best of luck and get that jersey dirty!
