Results & Pictures

Sorry this has taken me so long to post. This year really kicked me in the rear! But all worth it, we created a course that I think was a hit!

I am sure most of you have found results etc. but here is a list just in case.

Huge thank you to all that helped make this possible. Special thanks to my wife who puts up with my obsession with bike racing and came out to volunteer and watch our boy simultaneously. Darrel and Jennifer Williams who showed up before the sun came up and stayed until the tape was torn down. Randy and his crew, Juston and Dave. Ed Schilling always hooks us up with more supplies and time year after year. Colton for coming out of the woodwork and helping tape before his Cat 4/5 race. As always Horizon Cycling.

Also wanted to give some credit to Dale Nichols from IA. Never met him until Sunday. He drove down from northern IA to race and also was the first guy to show up to help mark the course at zero dark 30 in morning! Seriously thank you Dale!

I honestly bit off more than I could chew with my course ambitions and needed all the help I could get. We literally finished taping and marking the course an hour before the first race started! So If I missed anyone I sincerely apologize and your help was truly appreciated. Its honestly pretty challenging juggling a race on top of family, work etc.

Here are some pics of the park to wet your whistle!

Cool tree lined section on the long course extension
Can't have you drive to Joetown without climbing some hills! (Entrance to the long course extension)
Cat 3, SS, M 1/2 & W Cat 1/2/3

1st real run up!!! If you can get to the top on your bike your a better rider than I am!!
Second ride/run up. You can make it to the entrance fairly easily if you don't care about your rims (I do),
Most likely you will have to get off your bike on the other side though. Also note to watch your melon on the other side,
It narrows towards the last set of stairs you see. 

See you Sunday!!!!

Getting Close!!

Don't know about you but I am ready for some steady cross racing around these parts!!

A couple quick items to go over...

Parking: We should have plenty of parking for everyone. Lets try and fill up the main lot before we spill out to other parts of the park.

Tents: Just put them up close to the finish area by the playground (just a suggestion) or any other place you want actually.

Also, if you wish to volunteer with set up/ course marshal etc. Shoot me an email with your t-shirt size.

NOTE: There is not two separate courses. The main course or "short course" is 1.5 miles and will be utilized by all races. The addition of a section on the south end of the park is the "long course" and adds a couple hundred feet of elevation, off camber tuns and about another .75 miles. This section will be opened for the last races of the day: Cat 3, Singlespeed, Womans and Mens Open races.

So Masters racers have a decision to make. Either race Masters on the short course or jump into a category race.

Robidoux Roundup CX Course, 2015

I can't figure out a better way to show the course layout so here are some links from my Strava run.

I am 95% certain this is basically how its going to lay out.

Robidoux Roundup CX - Long Course - This course is going to be ran only for Woman 1/2/3, Singlespeed, Mens Cat 1/2 & Cat 3 races only. So if your a fast Masters guy I would consider jumping into a category race for this one.

Robidoux Roundup CX - Short Course - This is going to be the main course ran for Mens and Womans Cat 4/5, Masters races and the Juniors.

The course is going to be challenging for everyone, the only thing the long course is going to offer more than the short course is a power climb or two and some off camber cornering.

We are going to have a kids race also!!! Weather is usually pretty good still so bring out the family and the bike for the little guy/gal!!

I am behind on my USA cycling duties and will get the flyer and everything up and going hopefully no later then and of day tomorrow.
