Xmas Cross 2012

17 Dec

While the cross season around philly may be finished last week with Cross at the Kiln, last weekend is the real highlight of the season and most people’s ‘A’ race that they build for all season. Or maybe not but its definitely the most fun to be had in PhillCX. Saturday morning was X-mas Cross and MTB Follies http://xmascrossandmtbfollies.blogspot.com/

Put on by the great people of Bicycle Therapy. This year it was much more cross-centric (rather than the mtb trails at Belmont) which made for a great race. I was still hurting from the PHLBIKES holiday party the night before so I opted out of most of the races until the end SS race where I was relegated for cheating too much??!! But the lady was able to get a race in as well but may have also been DQ’ed for excessive cheating…? Oh well.

Later that night we rode down to Bicycle Revolutions to check out the party.  They were having awards for the SSCX champs and discussed the upcoming Single Speed Cyclo Cross Worls Championship that’s going to eb held in Philadelphia in 2013 (#SSCXWC2013)  Should be a wild time.
