This cold, wet weekend finally marks the end of road races (so it seems). I'm guessing most of you will make use of this by doing "normal" things like waking up at a decent hour, drinking beer, and playing rock band for about 6 hours...
Fore those of you who aren't quite right in the head, Get 'yer mud boots out. You're going to get dumped on. It's going to be nasty, wet and sloppy. In other words, it's going to be a Tara Reid sort of weekend. And luck for you, there are some great races going on. The New York State Cyclocross Championships are happening on Saturday in Prospect park... in Troy, NY. Yeah, i know- they also have a central park up there- did you know that?
There's also a big Double header happening in the DE/PA area. On Saturday we have the ever-so-epic Granogue Cross race in Delaware. It's held on the Dupont family's private estate, and I heard that in order to cope with the Impending nor'easter, they have completely coated the entire course in Teflon.
Round 2 of the Amish double header happens on Sunday at Wissahickon CX in Ludwig's Corner, PA. I go just for the fantastic beer tent (Thanks, Victory Brewing). I hear the course will once again have a circle of death and a sand trap, so get ready to befuddle people who are confused by the concept of riding bicycles in goofy patterns on grass and jumping over wooden planks.
Another big weekend of racing has been completed, so let us now type the results into the internet and see what happens.
Yes, it is Harlem weekend (known to many other as Father's Day Weekend, but we all know that's just for the norms), but there are other bike related options out there.
Many racing type things happened over the weekend, and a lot of them are not yet recorded, so that allows me to be lazy AND still claim that I checked for results.
