Last weekend it felt great to be back out at Jackson Meadows. The bluff views driving to Marine on St. Croix, the beautiful CX weather on Saturday and the nice fall weather on Sunday made the weekend perfect for more Minnesota Cyclocross. From all reports LGR Racing created an amazing course with punchy climbs on the ski trails, tight twisty corners, a wonderful set of railroad ties halfway up that steep hill. Thank you LGR Racing for putting on another great race, and thank you to everyone who came out and raced/cheered/heckled and otherwise had an awesome time. Results for the race can be found here.
Next up is Karma CX in New Brighton. This will be a new venue for us and we can't wait to see how the new place stacks up and what the course will be like. Punchy? Tight and twisty? Technical? Fast? We don't know yet, but we sure can't wait to find out! If you are looking for more family fun then come on out and spend the day racing bikes with your favorite people!
