\’Cross For A Good Cause

October 19, 2005 – Last night (Tuesday) was the first of a four-week cyclo-cross series held at the National Cycling Centre — Atlantic Canada (St-Anselme Park, Dieppe) where every penny raised in registration goes in for a good cause and the series winner will decide the which Foundation the donations will go to. The series is proudly presented by Mike’s Bike Shop.

For this fun twilight event (and yes, lights will become more and more valuable as weeks progress), all categories are regrouped and riders are assigned a specific handicap. For example, top riders in the field needed to lap novice riders at least three times (on a short version of a cross course) to win the event. This proved to challenge everyone to give it their best effort”¦ it also encourage a few riders to come and join us for the first time and discover the discipline of cyclo-cross. For this event, mountain bikes are also accepted.

The event is also surrounded with a fun relaxed ambiance. After the race, a skid contest was even held and was taken by Patrice Boudreau, followed closely by Jeff Currie.

We greatly invite every cyclists to join the group next Tuesday at 6:00 pm for a good cause. For some photos of last night, click on http://paddlerx.smugmug.com/gallery/891018. Do not hesitate to use them for your publication.
