Cross Season News

  |   Uncategorized

Sunday, Nov. 8 – Dolores – Joe Rowell Park 

Sunday, Nov. 15 – Cortez

Saturday, Nov. 21 – Aztec

Sunday, Nov. 22 – Durango – Santa Rita Park

Sunday, Dec. 6 – Series Finals – FLC Stadium 

 

 

There will be three different start times:

Men A/40+

Kid’s/MTB

Men B/Open Women

 

We have some great sponsors this year that are helping us bring it up a notch: Animas Orthopedics/Rivergate Sports Medicine and Durango Coca-Cola are the presenting sponsors with many more helping to make it possible (flyer out soon).

 

PRACTICES: Wednesdays at 12noon

 

That for the first few weeks as later in the day conflicts with Football. Once you know the course you may practice at any time, just be aware in high traffic/paved sections. If the football team is using its whole practice area then avoid that part of the course (you can figure out a way do the barriers without conflicting). There is also baseball/softball/soccer and club sports using the area later in the day – it’ll be tough until November.

 

ALWAYS  KEEP  YOUR HEAD UP FOR PEDS AND OTHER TRAFFIC.

 

I have marked a ~ 6min. course starting at the softball complex toward Dirks Field (Soccer-East) then heading left (north). Orange flags mark the apex of turns 95% of the time – the other 5% they are there to give a long straightaway reference. When there are 2 and 3 flags it is a hairpin and/or in an area without a tree to mark the turn.

Tad Elliott is in Austrailia

  |   Superstar Interviews

Alumni Tad Elliott is off to Austraila for the next week as he prepares for fidays U23 World Championship cross country race. Tad is there with fellow Durangoan Todd Wells to represent in the world scene. Here is Tad’s latest update.

Flight went well economy plus on the isle with no one next to me. I slept for 7:30 hours straight no sleeping pill. Woke up ate some food then took another 1:30 nap. I had so much food I did not even eat the airplane food. Very Nice. Course is good with a lot of single track and tons of option lines with jumps over ditches, drops, and fun stuff.  It is a lot like Colorado trails. I hope to do well. Colin Cares and I are roommates.  Hotel room is so swank. Two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, big flat screen TV, movie channels, two bathrooms and showers, plus our own laundry. So nice. Food set up is rad. Walk downstairs and there is 4 star restaurant preparing our meals. We see tons of Cockatiels and Parrots flying around, Kangaroo dead on the side of the road, I have not seen a live one yet but I hope to soon. It is very cold and windy here. Thermal stuff like spring in Colorado. Talk to you more when there is something cool to report.
