– We hope everyone had a great extended Labor Day weekend.

– CX racing starts up in earnest soon, so get those bikes ready.

Patriot CX – Saturday Sept 8th, Wild Card Cycling will host their second cyclocross race at Heritage Park in Rantoul, Il.  Promoter Karl C and his team have worked hard planning and setting up a course that’s both fun and challenging. They want to make it worth your trip down and have added more distance, extra climbs and a sand pit… the barriers and logs from last year will be there also. They may have a nice size mud puddle too, depending on how much rain there is this week. Wild Card has a lot of great prizes for the race winners and will raffle some after the last race. Yes, there will be a food vender  with burgers, brats, chips, drinks. See the Course here. More info at http://wildcardcycling.org/index.php/site/events/

– And finally… presented without comment.
