Holy Zeus, it is almost here - CXLA, the only local UCI-caliber cyclocross race on the calendar this year is returning to the Greek Theater. This weekend.
There is a full slate of activities scheduled between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening. Golden Saddle Cyclery will be hosting a 'Ride with the Pros' clinic - happy hour at Mohawk Bend - racing - heckling - partying - dinner fandango at Golden Road Brewing - Expo - community cross - doggy cross - kiddie cross - bike swap - a course that will twist and turn more than the slithering locks of Medusa's hair. Check here for the full schedule.
With big points on the line, many of the top racers from the US and Canada will be here. Who will the gods favor? Who will give the finger to those gods, forsake them and risk their anger to go it on their own? Whether Aphrodite shows up or not, I am expecting good things. Show up and see for yourself.
