World's Largest Cyclocross Returns for Another Year

River City Bicycles Cyclocross Crusade

Race #1 at Alpenrose Dairy This Weekend

Once again, the Cross Crusade has begun. As the director of the series, I want to first invite everyone out and wish you luck. The Crusade is open to all levels of participants and pretty much any kind of bike you can dream up is legal to race on. Racing cross is as much about having a good time as it is about competition. Chris King and his gang will again be serving free Stumptown Coffee, there will be belgian waffles and bratz for sale. For this year we are also pleased to announce that our newest sponsor, Bob's Red Mill will be serving complimentary oatmeal each morning.

River City Bicycles and Chris King will have mechanics on hand to deal with any bike problems you might have and Oregon Chiropractic College will be on hand to deal with any body problems that come up.

I want to thank Carl Cadnaugh and all the folks at Alpenrose Dairy for providing the venue for our kickoff event. They have agreed to close down their operations for the day which enables us to use their back parking lot as well as the main meadow lot. We have also made some minor course alterations which allows us to park many more vehicles in the meadow lot as well. Parking on Shattuck Rd. is illegal and those cars will get ticketed.

The course will be set up and open for pre ride by mid afternoon on Saturday, so come out and take a spin. Registration will also be open on Saturday from noon to 4:00pm.

Hope you come and have the time of your life.
