It's not mountain biking; but it looks a bit like it. It's not just cycling; though modified road racing bicycles are used. Plus, there's running involved while carrying the bike over obstacles and up hills too steep or slippery to ride. It's cyclocross.
Cyclocross has long been the way the European road racing scene has wound down in the fall. It is ideal for spectators, and cameras, since it consists of short laps run on compact open ground courses, often in public parks.
Midweek Club founder Peter McCaffery, who runs the expanding summer road racing series in the GTA and the elite Canadian men's Midweek Club road racing team, is hosting the 3 Nov 02 Southern Ontario Cyclocross event in Centennial Park, Etobicoke.
Five age categories will be competing in two events. Off at 11 am are the women, and men over 40 and under 18. The main event at 12:30 pm is for men ages 19 - 39.
For more information on this skilled and demanding form of bike racing, contact Peter McCaffery at 905 271-8300, cell 416 527-8584 or firstname.lastname@example.org and www.midweekclub.com
Additional information on the cyclocross season is available at Ontario Cycling Association 416 426-7416 or www.ontariocycling.org
