The planets have aligned

The following report is ripped off the desk of Dave Dorning...
Manitoba Union of Cyclocross Riders (MUCR) dude Hal Loewen reports -
The season starts off on Sunday, August 30th with Manitoba Cyclocross #1, brought to you by the Olympia Cycling Club. We're trying an new venue at Crescent Drive Park which should be a fast course.For those who do not have an MCA license and want to give cyclocross a try all you need to do is buy the MCA citizen license and we'll let you into the race for free! For that matter, you will get into all remaining races* for free (excluding the Provincial championships) with a citizen’s license. To help you get ready for your first cyclocross experience a group of experienced racers will be offering a free clinic on the ins and outs of cyclocross at the r ace site starting at 2:00.

Series Schedule
#1 - Aug. 30 - Crescent Drive Park
#2 - Sept. 19 - Kings Park
#3 - Sept. 26 - CMU
#4 - Oct. 4 - Bourkevale/Bruce Park
#5 - Oct. 10 - Belgian Club
#6 - Oct. 18 - Altona
#7 - Oct. 25 - Whittier Park
Provincials - Nov. 1 - Woodhaven
#8 - Nov. 8 - Kildonan Park

That's right, $40 gets you a citizen MCA license and you get to ride in 8 races. So much mud, pain at and fun for so little money - mennonites be warned. Without the license you could still ride in 3 races that are open to non-MCA members (like our Southern Cross and races 3 and 4 - see schedule), but you would then need to pay the 10 - 20 dollar entry fee per race. Bottom line - if you want to see what cyclocross mania is all about, the time in nigh.

First cross poster of the year featuring Jonny G. If that guy wasn't so fast, i would totally beat him in any race - sucka!
