The following C results prizes were left on the table at the end of the day and due to the late results, as promised we saved them to be picked up at a later date rather than be recycled at the next race.
Thank you to Alger Bike for setting up a”true” cyclocross course today at Cascade Park. The chili they provided was a great touch for a chilly day! Thanks to the racers who celbrated Halloween and raced in costumes. We had fat guys chasing hamburgers, downhill skiers, racers in three piece suites, wonder woman, Hell Kaats and of course a monkey riding a banana!
This weeks call out for move ups to the next category include: (B mens) winner; Henry Wiles, (C men) winner: Chris Ostlund; (C Master) winner Mark Giles and (C woman) Clair Reeves. Great results congratulations!
Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour Saturday a.m. We’d hate to have someone get there an hour early.
To our friends, families, mountain biking, hiking and outdoor enthusiast communities;
After hours of discussions and deliberating about the pros and cons of the request to receive approval for the NCT mountain biking event, Kisscross Events has decided its in the best interest of everyone to rescind our request from the NFS.
Please understand this decision wasn’t easy and we appreciate all the time and energy many of you spent writing letters and well thought out editorials on the history, conflicts, synergies, relationships and perspectives on the North Country Trail.
This is not a we won they lost or they won we lost situation, but an understanding that this proposed event and it’s intensions to showcase the beauty of the NCT would be overshadowed by negativity and unproductive finger pointing. It is our hope that we all will continue our discussions, put our differences aside and come together to preserve, maintain and enjoy this national treasure.
We thank you all for your support and understanding and hope you take time to get outdoors and enjoy all the natural beauty our state is offering during this Fall season.
Rick Plite and Scott TenCate
Wow, that was a cross race! Some great battles were fought out there and everyone looked drained. Lots of move up’s today. Please remember that if you are a A or B racer doing a C race for a warm up or practice you should at least soft pedal at the end and put yourself in a lower position.
Move up’s include:
Harrison Webb, Brian Hancock, Tony Hersberger, Jimi Minnema, Eric Wolting, Jenny White, Jeff Warner
