We have a winner! A huge congratulation to Stewart Wyllie for taking the win in only his second ‘cross race ever and in some pretty crazy conditions to boot. Congratulations Stewart! Greg Mash (11th in Sport Men, Puncheur Cross), Jordan Fischer (14th in Novice Men, Puncheur Cross), and Mark Faas (22nd in Sport Men, Burman U Cross) were also representing the club this weekend.

As you’ll see in the schedule below, our rider schedule is starting to thin out substantially. We’re working on our winter schedule right now (start getting excited for fat bike rides, indoor trainer sessions, and cross country skiing!), but for the time being we’ve started a Wednesday evening winter ride for fat bikes, ‘cross bikes, and mountain bikes alike. Remember to bring your lights!

You still have a little time to recognize some of the outstanding members who have contributed to make our club what it is by nominating them for a 2016 Velocity Cycling Club Award. If you have someone in mind, please fill out the form in the link by the end of today on Tuesday, October 18.
