Wide Awake

Dear Everyone,

The start list for this Sunday's excellent adventure (aka race) can be found here. Check your grade as the handicapping wizards have been at work.

REGISTRATION/NUMBER PICK UP CLOSES 30MINS BEFORE RACE START. This is in all caps as some apparently people need to be shouted at about this. If you miss this, you won't get to race. It's that simple.

There will be very limited spots available in Men's A/B/C and Open available on the day. Like ultra-rare super limited edition. Kids and Womens races will have a few more. If you want one, you best get to the reg desk when it opens (10:30). FIRST IN, FIRST SERVED. BE NICE, BE POLITE!

Ok so we need to talk about parking...
You can't park on Golf Rd or Ronald Rd. Please park in the Basketball/Athletics Track carpark (Outlook Rd) or the Coburg Pool parking lot (Murray Rd). We will have traffic wardens out there. Don't make us look bad.

We will have tshirts, coffee, burgers, chips and doughnuts on sale on the day... The sun looks like it'll be back. You are going to have so much fun... WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.

We all need somebody to lean on

Hello cyclocross fans!

As you all know, DDCX Round 2 is coming up at Jackson reserve. We do love ourselves some great racing, and the crowd participation aka heckling always adds to the atmosphere.

Given the size of the parkland we're working on, we could really use some more volunteers to help things run smoothly and keep our vols force from burning out. I know, I know, those guys look superhuman, what with their high-vis and permasmiles. But they're human, and largely racers, who put on their bib shorts one silicone-gripped leg at a time like the rest of us.

So if you'd like to help out, what with the setup or marshalling (prime heckling here), please, drop us a line at ddcx.volunteers - it's a gmail address with the @gmail.com suffix - with your name, e-mail, number and what you'd like to do. If you've put up for volunteering via the entryboss, system, don't worry, we've already got you!

Lastly, we also have some ultra rare marshalling posts out on the street, where you can soak up the atmosphere from afar and direct traffic to the super cool parking lots. Sadly, we can't guarantee a lollipop (sign or candy). Let us know.

Council Estate of Mind

In these cold cold months layering is key... and seriously what better way to stay warm and harness your inner mud-ruling than with a cracking new tshirt.

But what to choose? Here's where DDCX comes in... We have another batch of excellent torso covers to help you fill that inevitable gap in your black tshirt wardrobe and level up your fashion status to 'AWESOME'.



Now we can't sell you Arnie's body (and to be honest it's probably not the best one for CX, not the least because the chafe from those loincloths was horrendous) but our operators are standing by waiting to dispatch your tshirt order.

So what are you waiting for... Sign up today to sport the freshest cotton across your top half and support the racing that you love.

Also - Entries are open for the next round on the 19th! They will close midnight Wed 15/7.

Teenage Exorcists

Location! Location! Location!

Well, we have a location for our next round on July 19th!

You will be racing here...
Which is here


Some of you will remember it from a number of years ago when we held a race there. Looking back at that race report I'm reminded how things have changed (Warrack Leach had his first A grade race and AJ and Amity didn't have a CX bike).

We will have entries open very soon and will provide the world with more information on where to park, where to sign on and a few other surprises!

In the mean time, if you want to get your legs warmed up or follow up on the fun you had at Cramwell Park last week you should consider a road trip up to the nation's capital for the next two rounds of NCXS. Entries and more details are here

Stiff Necked Fools

Allo Allo,

It was pointed out to me in a conversation this week that we hadn't posted anything after Round One... Chalk it up to a hectic double header race weekend followed by all the organising team being spread around the state/country in the coming weeks.

Anyways... here's some great shots and videos from kind spectators. Think of it as an acid flashback to another great day of racing and cheering on lycra clad fools.

Video Evidence of the day...


Some great shots
Shaun T
Tim Renowden
Gonzalo
Matthew Townsend

And of course don't forget the coming weekend the 'circus' comes to town with the arrival of the Vic leg of the National Cyclocross Series (NCXS). It's being run by Sunbury/Fields Of Joy at Cramwell Park. There's a lot of information here and more on their facebook page. Read it, enter, volunteer, tune in, get rad. 

Our next round is July 19th, more info on that to come when this upcoming storm of CX awesome passes Melbourne.

Verse Chorus Verse

Apologies for our tardiness in posting the results from yesterday but the CX hangover affects each of us differently...

Some like to swear off CX, some take some time with another poison (like road bikes) and some go out for a 'hair of the dog' and spend the day surrounded by tape again...

Here are the results for Saturday's extravaganza... (except for kids, we are still sorting that out). We haven't removed DNS's yet either. So consider them 'preliminary results', OK?

As always... if you have any questions or issues with the results, please take a deep breath and read this.

Men's CX A
Men's CX B
Men's CX C/Open
Women's Races

Also - Can we get a virtual round of applause for all the people who volunteered their time on Saturday (and for that matter Sunday @ FOJCX). There's a lot of moving parts to get these races run and done... all help is always appreciated. #thankavollie
