I am teaming up with the MFG Cyclocross to supplement the CX season with a call to action.
We (everyone and anyone who wants to participate is welcomed) are taking over the Fallon Park Cyclocross course from 9am-5pm and going to try and complete 500 laps on a taped 6min CX course.
We are asking people across the country to buy laps as a way to donate to our effort. 1 lap = $5. Thus, the goal is to raise $2500. But the more laps y’all buy the more laps we are going to try and do. We won’t stop at 500 if y’all buy 600 and if we have to push into overtime we’ll do it and get the laps done!
Also, I will be offering 3 skills clinics throughout the day (3 separate 2 hr time frames, limited to 10 people per group). We will get together and turn laps for 2 hrs. Along the way we will be going over CX skills (dismount, remount, barrier suitcasing, and barrier hopping for those interested, shouldering, cornering, etc). These will cost the same as a typical race reg $35.
All the money raised will be going directly to the Roanoke Outside Foundation who is a huge backer of Go Cross and other outdoor events such as Go Fest. They are an outdoor-oriented organization looking to spread the love and knowledge of access and opportunity for outdoor recreation in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas.
