Halloween at the Camp

The last cyclocross race before the End of the World is just days away. As a non-cup event, this event has a slightly more playful feel to it. Costumes, pumpkin barriers, and a few extra tricks and treats have everything to do with this.

Online registration is now open and closes on Saturday, Oct. 27 at midnight. On-site registration will be available, but will cost you 10 extra bones. Additional details can be found at the Red River Racing site.

Details here.

Next Up

If you stayed away from St. Malo due to the weather kick yourself in the shin. Kick yourself in both shins. You missed an awesome awesome race. We get great cyclocross conditions (no not that crazy mud ball stuff you see on YouTube) where the temperature is perfect and the ground has just the perfect amount of give about once every year and that was it.

Next up is Southern Cross in Altona next Sunday and then Provincials on Sunday Oct 21 (note that the incorrect date was printed on some of the season passes).
