Perth Cyclocross – Back for a second year!
The Ottawa Bicycle Club is returning to host a morning of cyclocross racing in Perth! The Perth race is race number seven of the ten race series being held this fall throughout the Ottawa Valley.
Cyclocross is the fastest growing discipline in cycling, with popularity skyrocketing worldwide. Specialized cyclocross bikes (think of a road bike with mountain bike tires) are used as racers ride on grassy fields, dismount their bikes and carry them over barriers, run up steep, short hills and ride through sand pits or mud depending upon conditions!
Races are very spectator friendly, presenting many opportunities to see the action up close and personal!
The racing in Perth will occur on Sunday, November 6 at Conlon Farm Recreation Complex. Come on out to cheer on some of the best racers in Canada (including current and former National and Provincial champions!) Races start at 9am (for U17 and younger, Women, Masters B Men and older & Novices) with the second race starting at 10:45am (Elite Men, Masters A Men & Junior Men.)
For more information on the races, go to www.cyclocross.org, or call race organizer Bob Woods at 613-256-1874. Or, just make your way to Conlon Farm on Sunday, November 6! If you’re interested in racing yourself, see the website for registration details.
