Thursday Anticipation

We have some exciting news to pass on, boys and girls. The Good Times Syndicate otherwise known as the FGBC/RRR has once again teamed up to bring you a very special event:

Brad the Impaler has secured a venue. And we are busy working on the details for how the event will unfold. It will likely involve several shorter races in a heat format. More details will be rolled out in due course. In the meantime, how about a few videos?

The original inspiration came from the indoor cyclocross race held in Hasselt, Beligum. It looks a little something like this:

Our event--though it is a championship event--will be run on a slightly smaller scale. You can expect something a little more along these lines:

Attentive readers will no doubt be aware that Jan. 29 is also the same day a few other cyclocross champions will be crowned. The CX Worlds go down earlier in the day. The Hipster and I are working on a plan to secure an appropriate venue so that we can gather to watch that together. Stay tuned.

In other news, we have chosen the weekend for the annual winter 24 Hour Race and Film Festival. 24 Hours of Bill Murray will take place on March 3-4. It looks like the venue will shift back to the Secretary's place.

It will be awesome! But not as awesome as it would be if you were there doing that heckling thing you do.

Good luck at Arrowhead. We will be watching.
