If you get a chance to go out and watch a cross race, I suggest you do it. It is a great sport to test your endurance and challenge your bike skills. Redbike did a great job putting on the race and the venue (Hermitage Park) was perfect. Hopefully there will be more spectators at the next race on September 27th.
The next race in the Edmonton area is the: Jim Horner Grand Prix of Cyclo-cross on Saturday September 27, 2014 run by Juventus Cycling Club. Races start at 10:00am. Go to http://www.albertabicycle.ab.ca/events for a complete list of races.
