`Cross on Breakfast TV!
On Thursday, November 8th starting at 6 am, with the last round around 10 am, CITY TV will make 4 segments for Breakfast TV (live) and 1 for Daytime TV broadcast. More details to follow...
Midweek Club is looking for riders, race crew and spectators to participate in a series of short races that will be broadcast during the show as well as coaches that will teach the TV personalities to race cross. It is a perfect opportunity to showcase the sport to a large audience and increase the attendance of the UCI event scheduled for that weekend.
Racers of all ages and abilities are incouraged to participate. Larger numbers will ensure that the background is always full.
Midweek Club is also looking for volunteers to help setting up all the courses.
If you would like to participate please contact Craig Fagan at firstname.lastname@example.org
