First, and most importantly, a big thanks goes out to Twenty20 Cycling for hosting a phenomal event. Putting on one race is never an easy feat, and they really outdid themselves with two days of national-caliber fun. The course was creative and challenging, and completely reworked overnight so that racers didn’t face the same course on Sunday that they conquered Saturday. If anything went wrong over the weekend, we didn’t know about it!
Results from the races have been posted. Day One is here. Day two is here. A quick perusal will note several top-20 finishes from Bike Laners, as well as a couple podiums! Oh, and by the way, there were FOURTEEN Bike Lane racers out this weekend! We’ve got a lot of photos from the event that we’re still sorting through, so stay tuned (and yeah, the SM100 photos are coming, too. Patience is a virtue). The guys that bring expensive cameras to races have already posted hundreds of pics, so sift through those in the mean time, if that’s your thing:

Proof that the racing is 100% underway: Sunday, 26 September brings the Ed Sander Memorial Cyclocross, hosted by NCVC. Expect another big Bike Lane presence. If you haven’t decided to do the race, you should. And you should register now. All the fields except for Masters Cat 3,4 Men 35+/45+ still have slots available. Cat 4 men, that means you! In case you missed it, register HERE.
Lastly, the Iron Cross race web site is finally live! Iron Cross is long. Really long. It’s North America’s longest cyclocross race. Everybody will be there. All the cool kids are doing it. It’s a good thing you have friends like us to tell you about this sort of thing. Go register and join in the, uh, “fun”.
