Two days of racing in the desert came to close on Sunday – and it was the largest AZ CX event EVER. Over 300 hundred racers competing on the Horse Lover’s track. Complete with run-ups, technical descents, a few twists and turns, and a number of classic power sections. Fantastic CAT 5 and Women’s fields – thank you for your support.
Special thanks to the CrankyCross boys for a great course/event on Saturday, and Sunday’s racing was definitely a change. Two days of racing takes it’s toll on the fittest of racers, and the Horse Lover’s track tested everyone over the weekend.
Lots of new faces raced on both Saturday and Sunday – which is exciting. Please continue to race your bike – CX is an awesome way to improve your bike handling and fitness over the next month.
Tons of posts on social media – lot’s of pictures and some great video – check it out across all the digital media platforms.
Yes, one month to go. Next weekend – December 5-6 @ Mother Nature – remember, no dogs are allowed at this venue. And no pre-riding on Friday – this is private land, and be respectful. We are guests.
