CXpreX 2018

For the last few years the Ann Arbor Velo Club has been hosting the CXpreX series to introduce new riders to cyclocross racing and to give experienced riders a place to get ready for the season. I'm pleased to announce that we're back again for 2018!

The series will be held on Thursday evenings at Hunt Park on August 16 and 23 we move to Leslie Park on August 30 and September .  
6 If you'd like to help out please reach out to the AAVC Board to volunteer.  We're always looking for volunteers to help with setup, registration and for experienced riders to lead the weekly clinics.

We'd like to invite you to an End Of Series Party! We'll meet in the Gulo Room at Wolverine State Brewing Company after we close down CXpreX #4. Come over, bring your # plate and get a discount on beverages, hang with the cool CX Racers, look at pics from the series and if we can figure out how to connect a laptop to the WSBC Video screens we'll watch For the Love of Mud.

Week 3! Already Wow. We're at Leslie Park for the next 2 weeks, Mt. Sisyphus has been mowed and it ready for running. Are you?

We could use a bit of help this week with registration. 2 people would be great! We could also use some early arrivals to help set the course, our Tuesday exploration has come up with a great CX course. We'll start setting the course @ 4 come on out if you can.

Here's a link to the volunteer spreadsheet:

Chris Aitken, Jack Hogan, Tom Chapman, and Josie Simpson will be leading a clinic on the Alma cyclocross course! If you're planning on racing @ Alma here's a great way to learn the course and get some pre-race practice laps. For more info go to Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross

Here's the results for the A's and B's. We know the C's and Jr's went out hard and fast. We don't report the results for the you because this event is supposed to be about learning and practice. The harsh reality of racing for results will come crashing down on you soon enough.

Week #1 Results

Week One Results for the A and B catagories. We don't publish C and Junior results. We feel that CXpreX is a learning experience and that publishing results puts pressure in the wrong place. We want you to to practice what you learn at these races and not just go all out to get the W. When the race season starts you should have a solid base of knowledge and experience and then you can go out and feel confident in your abilities and skills.

All the riders from the newest to the most experienced did some serious 'Cross racing in the beautiful Waterhill area of Ann Arbor.

Thanks to all the volunteers for putting this event together, without you we couldn't get it done!

Thanks to the racers, without you it wouldn't be worth doing.

Thanks to the Sponsors without you we wouldn't be eating and giving stuff away.
