Smiths Farms was a hit! Despite the cool, breezy day most racers raced their hearts out on the challenging course set up by Team Jeni’s. They did an excellent job of incorporating the long straight aways with nice, twisty technical sections. At the end of the day, despite the wind and the cold, the course was fast. High speed all around, full gas for the entire race.

 Big props to Cafe Brioso for showing up with a full blown espresso machine. They definitely made cold spectators and racers happy!

Looking Ahead – Cap City Cross resumes Saturday November 16 at Alum Creek State Park. If you’re unfamiliar with the park, it’s situated on the beach of Alum Creek reservoir. While mostly flat, there are some false flat inclines and plenty of off camber to test those technical skills. Anything else? Oh, yea, SAND! Plenty of sand. While flat and somewhat packable, it’s still sand and will still prove difficult.

But hey! Cyclo-cross racing isn’t supposed to easy. No gifts, ecspcially not this weekend. See you all Saturday!
