Musclecross Was Fun
This Sunday the 5th, come down to Buckley Park and witness the fun of Cyclocross. As part of their class project, the Animas High Mountain Bike Class will be putting on the event along with Russ Zimmerman from the Durango Cyclery. The students have been working on the event for the past month with help from teachers Sarah Tescher and Chad Cheeney, local Durango Devo coaches. This is the final event in the line-up for the 2010 Fort Lewis Cycling Cyclocross series. There will be no FLCCX series points awarded at this race as the series ends on Saturday at the race up on the FLC campus. Muscle Cross is a fun race to celebrate the fun cross season, with a shorter course and some pretty silly sections, this final race will leave the racers smiling. Racing begins at 9am with the 5 lap Open MTB Category, open to anyone on a MTB. 9:30am will see the Free Kids Race take off, open to all kids 12 and under. No kid is too young as we will have helpers out on course to assist them in the obstacle sections. The Star Spangled Banner will start the 30 minute B Mens race at 10am to be followed by the 30 minute A Women’s race at 10:45 and the 40 minute A Men at 11:45. There will be no age group racing. Prizes and Medals for the MTB, Kids and B racers and cash money to the top 3 A Men and Women. Cost is Free for the Kids race, $10 for the MTB class, and $15 for all others. Live race announcing, teenage DJ, Hot Chocolate, Chiminea for warmth and plenty of oohs and ahhs! Come down to Buckley Coliseum this Sunday morning and have fun with the Animas High Ospreys!

Fort Lewis Cycling’s Cyclocross Series presented by Animas Orthopedic Associates will be taking a weekend off to give thanks but will be back for December 4ths series finals at FLC. Dave Hagen, course designer and Coach of the FLC Skyhawks, said the course will have less turns than in the earlier races, and will feature more arcing turns and long straight power stretches. This change in style is due to rumors that the Nationals course in Bend will be more wide than in the past.
Last weeks race results for Santa Rita and FLC are right here.
The Fort Lewis Cycling Cyclocross series is halfway over this weekend with Sundays action in Aztec. This is the second year of the local race and it sound like it will be of similar design. There is a lot of lush grass, fast bmx course, and weaving in and out of the trees. The races begin at 10am with the A Women and B men and at 11am for the A men and 45+ men. This is a great spectator course.10 FC CX Series Flyer
