November… time for the CX scene to get serious and at the national level it doesn’t get more serious than contesting who will get the honour of wearing a red and white jersey for the next year. This Saturday will be that day and it will mark the second time Toronto has hosted this event in as many years.
Last year it was Wendy Simms and Chris Sheppard who came out on top in the elite races with Evan McNeely capturing the under 23 title. The line-up for this year looks good and so does the weather… it will be interesting to see who’s got their training right and can bring the hardware home. A recap of last year is online at the 2010 National CX Gallery where there are a few photos to look through.
For this year, expect local stars like Emily Batty, Andrew Watson, Peter Mogg and more to be contesting the front of the race. I’m looking forward to being there! Here’s a sample from the 2010 CX action, hope you can make it to the races (key in this to get your GPS pointed the right way: “*PINE POINT PARK, ETOBICOKE” )
