(I hate to reuse a photo, but this captures Infirmary Mound very well)
Yo! We’re back again. This week Cap City Cross resumes at another run at Infirmary Mound! The first round at Infirmary Mound featured a dry and fast course with a fair amount of climbing and plenty of technical off camber goodness. This weekend presents much of the same, except course conditions may be a little different. The forecast this week is calling for warming and cooling temperatures and a fair amount of precipitation in form of rain and snow. I’d anticipate a slick course at best, with some pretty heavy mud at the worst. The course is most similar to Saturday’s from the last race weekend, but omits the singletrack in leu of extra turns after the start, to better meet USAC championship requirements and improve spectating. The new course is more compact, while still retaining the fast pace and high-speed racing from from the first round of Infirmary races.

Modified Race Schedule for Cap City Cross #9/MWCCC Cyclo-cross Championships –
Directions – When routing to the park with Google the address does not take you to the exact entrance of the park. The park is on Lancaster Rd (37) and is marked reliably with signs. Looking for signs is your best bet to find the venue easily. If coming from 70 it is just beyond Union Rd. and will be on your right. If coming from Granville, it is beyond Old Farm Rd. and on your left.

Overalls – Will be posted shortly
See you Saturday!
