If you wanted to, you could race twice a weekend from now until the end of December. Like wheelsets in Jeremy Powers’ caravan, there are just so many to choose from (32 total).
Variety and choice is great for you, the #TXCX racer. You are in the driver’s seat, so to speak. But how do you pick the races you want to attend?
It’s your schedule and your time, so be sure to choose the ones that matter most to YOU. Here are eleven differentiators for you to consider when drafting your race calendar this year.
Most everyone is going to choose the local race, right? After all, if you don’t have to travel why would you? There are many reasons to think beyond your region, and we’ll get to them. But know that the new TXBRA calendar has a slew of experiences and you might not be limited to your area code.
Did you like the flyover at Give Me Some Sugar CX? How about the beer garden, costumes and racing through an olde-timey village at Spooky CX? Whatever you like at events, you should make sure they are on your calendar.
Also know your designer – Some track architects really know their terrain, and it shows by the flow – lots of tight turns and technical challenges (any Fawley event). Or maybe you want it more like a road event – all straights and gentle sweepers (Six Shooter, Webberville). It’s your call what you like, so capitalize.
