Wilkesboro NC Cyclocross Race Preview
A great write up from High Country Cyclocross for their race coming up this Sunday, January 16th. For a reminder, this is my second race this season and I can only hope to get a few more recovery rides in before to figure out my gearing!
Get ready for the coolest cyclocross race of the year at the Historic North Wilkesboro Speedway on Sunday, January 16, 2011.
We will be racing on a fun course that will start on the banked oval track, tear across the infield, navigate the tractor pull, shoot out under the grandstands to a huge swoopy descent of the grassy field outside the stadium, before riding back into the stadium, hitting the run up, and dropping back onto the track. It will be challenging mix of power and finesse, with a good rhythm of technical, speed, and recovery sections.
You can catch all the racing action from Talia Espresso’s Belgian Party Tent on top of the Winner’s Circle in the center of the stadium, and if the course gets sloppy you can hose down in the wheel pits on Pit Row, and take a shower in the Racer’s Lounge adjacent to the finish line.
What other Team BSG members will be out there? GBerger I know of but who else?
