That’s a lot of logos.
When you think about the Georgetown Cyclocross Festival, what comes to mind first?
250 ft of beach?
Tough, but rideable, hill climbs?
Gully-turns (akin to the Scuffle in Elgin)?
Just like previous editions of this young race, these features will be back in 2014, plus some new ones. Race Director, Rolando Roman has much to say, so without adieu…
Tell me a bit about your course – does it differ from years past?
Because sand and railroad ties are not hard enough by themselves at Georgetown. Hup! Hup!
The course has some changes from past years (3rd year event). We will have two run-ups; the first one will be along the hill side (same as last year) and a second one right after the tree single track section, this one will have five railroad ties with sand. I expect 100% dismount on this one. The sand pit got an overhaul from Georgetown Parks, a frame was build to maintain all the sand in the volleyball courts and they added several tons of sand. All I can say, it’s going to be a great place to cheer/heckle!
The official course map.
We will take racers to the tree section near the dog park, it will have some nice off camber and turns. Finally, the start and finish line will be at the same spot. This will help with the electronic timing and our nice 22 feet wide start/finish truss. The course is 1.7 miles long.
