We had a very successful Roger’s Harvest Ride with over 200 people signed up! A huge thanks to everyone that helped make this event a success!

Two World Cups and five races later and I’m finally back from my whirlwind trip of the USA and am looking forward to being back on the group rides this week! So come on out because ‘cross is definitely here! Please note that we’ve moved all the evening rides a little earlier to compensate for our quickly shortening days!

On that note our own race, Velocicross, is fast approaching (October 8 and 9) and we still need lots of volunteers to help make it happen. Interested in helping out? You can sign up right here! There are plenty of positions where you can volunteer AND still race!

Weekly Update: September 19-25

 

Another week into fall! The biggest news here is that Roger’s Harvest Ride is coming up this Sunday, September 25. Most of you are familiar with the ride, but if you aren’t be sure to follow the link. This is a great way to close out the road season!

Okay. So I don’t like to talk about my own racing on the weekly update, but I will this one time. This past weekend I race in Wisconsin for the Trek CXC Cup and came away with some results I’m pretty proud of. You can see a gallery and post on the Garneau-Easton Cycling website. On that note, I’ll also be racing the first two World Cups of the season in Las Vegas (September 21) and Iowa City (September 24). You can watch the livestream for each of these events on the UCI YouTube Channel.
