Ladies and Gentlemen!!! It's Time!!!
Manitoba cyclocross season is just one week away and I'm sure that all the parties involved have been gluing their tubulars and sharpening their teeth for this one. And again this year there will be participation series, all the usual classics like Belgian Club, Altona and Whittier Park. In addition to the guaranteed good stuff, there are new venues and for sure new racers waiting to experience what all the fuzz is all about.
During some moment of weakness, I again put my name down for organizing duties and my race at Wildwood will kick off the season and I will also organize the provincials. All this is with the help of Woodcock Cycle Works and the trusted group of friends helping out with the race.
So first things first. Below are the specs for the Wildwood Cross 2010.
