This weekend was filled with great cyclocross action that included the 9th edition of the Barrie Cycling Club’s Baseball ‘Cross plus the first edition of the Vaughan Cyclocross Classic.
The Baseball CX has traditionally been a fun shoot as it has a great mud feature. I have to say though, it was a dry course for the first time I’ve been there! The VCX Classic was an unknown, a venue very few people had seen before. Both courses shared United Health Care’s racer Davide Frattini as course designer with Ashley Barson from Woodbridge Cyclepath also working on the Vaughan course. And the new VCX course got rave reviews. It was a well organized event and was a lot of fun to cover. I can see them hosting a provincial championship in short order and perhaps even be a venue for a national championship a few years down the road. That’s personal opinion though! Time will tell.
Meanwhile, here’s a teaser gallery from VCX. You’ll find a larger gallery up on my website. Happy browsing!
