Fort Lewis College Cycling Hosting Cyclocross Races Saturday
FLC Cycling is hosting the 2nd race in the Zia Taqueria 4 Corners Cyclocross Series (4CCX) on Saturday November 12, 2016 at Ray Denison Memorial Field on the Fort Lewis College campus. The FLC CX team will compete against racers from all over the region including many of Durango’s legendary cyclists. Three waves of racing will start at 10am, 11am and 12noon. Registration opens at 9am.
The action starts at 10am with Kid’s Races with help from Durango Devo and FLC CX racers. There will be two categories, under-10 years old and 10 to 13, for both boys and girls – mountain bikes are welcome! Devo and FLC racers will lead a pre-ride at 9:30am to show the course and assist with skills. Racers will do two laps on a 1-mile long course with obstacles to dismount over and challenging terrain. Best of all it is Free! More kids CX races will also be held on Sunday December 18, again at FLC.
At 11am the Open Women, Men B and Men 50+ will race the course for 40 minutes. FLC Senior cyclists Jenna MacPherson, Ellen Campbell and the rest of the women’s CX team are looking to build their form against some tough local competition in preparation for the 2017 Collegiate Cyclocross National Championships in Hartford, CT January 3-8.
The Open Men and Men 35+ categories will start at 12noon and race for 50 minutes. Many of Durango’s top cyclists including Troy Wells and Travis Brown will test FLC riders Ian McPherson, Cody Cupp, Jon Anderson and the rest of Men’s team in their own preparations for Nationals.
