Wide Awake

Dear Everyone,

The start list for this Sunday's excellent adventure (aka race) can be found here. Check your grade as the handicapping wizards have been at work.

REGISTRATION/NUMBER PICK UP CLOSES 30MINS BEFORE RACE START. This is in all caps as some apparently people need to be shouted at about this. If you miss this, you won't get to race. It's that simple.

There will be very limited spots available in Men's A/B/C and Open available on the day. Like ultra-rare super limited edition. Kids and Womens races will have a few more. If you want one, you best get to the reg desk when it opens (10:30). FIRST IN, FIRST SERVED. BE NICE, BE POLITE!

Ok so we need to talk about parking...
You can't park on Golf Rd or Ronald Rd. Please park in the Basketball/Athletics Track carpark (Outlook Rd) or the Coburg Pool parking lot (Murray Rd). We will have traffic wardens out there. Don't make us look bad.

We will have tshirts, coffee, burgers, chips and doughnuts on sale on the day... The sun looks like it'll be back. You are going to have so much fun... WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.

We all need somebody to lean on

Hello cyclocross fans!

As you all know, DDCX Round 2 is coming up at Jackson reserve. We do love ourselves some great racing, and the crowd participation aka heckling always adds to the atmosphere.

Given the size of the parkland we're working on, we could really use some more volunteers to help things run smoothly and keep our vols force from burning out. I know, I know, those guys look superhuman, what with their high-vis and permasmiles. But they're human, and largely racers, who put on their bib shorts one silicone-gripped leg at a time like the rest of us.

So if you'd like to help out, what with the setup or marshalling (prime heckling here), please, drop us a line at ddcx.volunteers - it's a gmail address with the @gmail.com suffix - with your name, e-mail, number and what you'd like to do. If you've put up for volunteering via the entryboss, system, don't worry, we've already got you!

Lastly, we also have some ultra rare marshalling posts out on the street, where you can soak up the atmosphere from afar and direct traffic to the super cool parking lots. Sadly, we can't guarantee a lollipop (sign or candy). Let us know.

Council Estate of Mind

In these cold cold months layering is key... and seriously what better way to stay warm and harness your inner mud-ruling than with a cracking new tshirt.

But what to choose? Here's where DDCX comes in... We have another batch of excellent torso covers to help you fill that inevitable gap in your black tshirt wardrobe and level up your fashion status to 'AWESOME'.

Now we can't sell you Arnie's body (and to be honest it's probably not the best one for CX, not the least because the chafe from those loincloths was horrendous) but our operators are standing by waiting to dispatch your tshirt order.

So what are you waiting for... Sign up today to sport the freshest cotton across your top half and support the racing that you love.

Also - Entries are open for the next round on the 19th! They will close midnight Wed 15/7.

Tapedeck Sound

We are live!
Go to the BOSSest race entry system out there and sign up for the good times...

A special note - Kids entries will continue to be through the old pre-reg system for now.

VOLUNTEERS! Yes, we love you... and we would love it if you could help out again. If you are racing you can select that you are volunteering and provide the normal information. But if you aren't racing but are down to help send us an email at ddcxDOTvolunteersATgmail.com with your availability.
