It's been longtime between web transmissions but I've fired up the old blogging machine to remind you that the final event of the DDCX calendar is looming...
Yes that's right, it's time to rack your brains to come up with something entertaining for SpookyCross.
The season finale of the CX year (at least in Victoria) is set for Saturday, November 8th at Harrison St Velodrome.
Schedule is as follows:
C/Open Scratch Races
B Scratch Races
Womens CX/Open Races
A Scratch Races
Main Event - BCCDDCXSSCXWC
If you have a DDCX season pass this is already covered!
Adults - $20/$15 (no costume/costume)
Kids - $5/$3 (no costume/costume)
You will need a CA or MTBA licence or a DDCX Race licence.
If you have been before you will have some inkling of what to expect, for newcomers plan for an afternoon of CX related fun, with Hot Laps, Scratch Sprints, a Relay Race and the main event the BCCDDCXSSCXWC aka the 'Single-Speed Champs'. Some new 'course features' are planned for the classic short course within the velodrome.
You can ride and wear what you like (but keep it PG-13 please) except for in the BCCDDCXSSCXWC where you must ride a singlespeed bike (of some form). This means a bike that has one gear (or demonstrably cannot shift).
Side note: GISing for this post reminded me just how many great costumes and fun times have been had running this event in the past. It really is one not to miss out on...
