Speakers Push the Air

Pre-reg is OPEN

Hello Again! Further to my last post about the impending arrival of SpookyCX we would like to send out a callout for volunteers 

We are looking for people to: 
-Setup the course, this will be from mid morning till when racing starts at ~1.30pm
-Registration desk, this will be from ~12.30pm till ~2.30ish, and we'll aim to have two shifts of 1hr.  If you've done it before great, if not and you like the idea of highlighters and envelopes let us know. -Marshall, this will be even cruis-ier than in past races as all racing will be inside the velodrome, this will be in 45min shifts during the day,we'll make sure it won't stop you racing.
-Packup, after racing finishes, getting all the gear stowed away so we can all go have a ginger beer.
If the idea of giving a little time back for a great event sounds good to you then drop us an e-line here.

Have you seen how good the weather is for this weekend?
Best way to handle the niceness is to get out and give that Cx bike a pre-SpookyCX spin and on Sunday you have two excellent options:
** Fields Of Joy are closing the curtains on their super fun inaugural season. Enter for the good times here!
** Those friendly beardos over at Melbourne Gravel Grinders have a superb route planned for you and your friends. I hear stories of u-pick strawberries and crazy small town stores. Go get some of that country gravel road!

I Was A Lover

Greetings DDCX Fans!

Pre-Reg is open!!

It's been longtime between web transmissions but I've fired up the old blogging machine to remind you that the final event of the DDCX calendar is looming...

Yes that's right, it's time to rack your brains to come up with something entertaining for SpookyCross.

The season finale of the CX year (at least in Victoria) is set for Saturday, November 8th at Harrison St Velodrome.

Schedule is as follows:

Hot Laps
Kids Racing
C/Open Scratch  Races
B Scratch Races
Womens CX/Open Races
Kids Presentations
A Scratch Races
Adult Presentations
Pack down

Entry is as follows:
If you have a DDCX season pass this is already covered!
Adults - $20/$15 (no costume/costume)
Kids - $5/$3 (no costume/costume)

You will need a CA or MTBA licence or a DDCX Race licence.

If you have been before you will have some inkling of what to expect, for newcomers plan for an afternoon of CX related fun, with Hot Laps, Scratch Sprints, a Relay Race and the main event the BCCDDCXSSCXWC aka the 'Single-Speed Champs'. Some new 'course features' are planned for the classic short course within the velodrome.

You can ride and wear what you like (but keep it PG-13 please) except for in the BCCDDCXSSCXWC where you must ride a singlespeed bike (of some form). This means a bike that has one gear (or demonstrably cannot shift).

Side note: GISing for this post reminded me just how many great costumes and fun times have been had running this event in the past. It really is one not to miss out on...
