I started racing with the NYCC Racing team this year, and have gotten really hooked on Cyclocross - it is a blast! Races, however, are usually a good distance away - meaning getting up very early and driving out to somewhere in New Jersey, Long Island, Upstate, or Pennsylvania, which is why I am super excited for this event - happening on the water in Astoria this weekend. 

There are still spots available to register for the Singlespeed race (zip-tying shifters on a geared bike alowed!), and both the Mens and Womens Category 5 field! Or if you are just interested in checking out some local racing, you should come by and spectate - Cyclocross is a lot of fun to watch.

There's one coming up I think in Rhode Island that goes down to the beach for some riding in the sand while being sprayed by the ocean. That's got to to be a real laff-riot. Those of you who subscribed with NBC Gold for the Tour, etc., can enjoy a full program of UCI cyclocross races and track events this winter.  Fun to watch something different.

Fun

This course makes great use of a small park, and if you stand on a baseball pitchers mound you can see many parts of it.  

Hopefully the referee is snow-friendly.
