Save the date!

Why?

The Prairie Peddler is happy to announce that we'll be putting on a cyclocross race! It is part of the Viroqua Cross Series. As such, it is a points race for what's happening up there. Newlin, time to get down here and do some planning! And to top it all off, there's no WCA races that weekend. Think we'll get an influx of 'easterner's' here? Lets hope so.

The course promises to be fast and furious. It'll be scenic for those not in the pain cave, and with good light, a great photographers course.

Of course I'll be posting updates as organization progresses.

Have suggestions for a name? Mississippi Cross? PdC Cross? Border Cross?

Listening to: Nothing. The shop is quiet. Peaceful.

I can remember sitting in my apartment in 1985 at the bottom of Gage hill when I saw a guy riding a Bianchi cyclocross bike, been in love with it ever since, hope to be there and working on the logistics. May have to bring some Springfield contingent and find a new western shirt for the occasion.
