CXMAS 2008!

BETTER GET READY!
Updated 12/4/08


Bookmark this post as details will be added as the date gets closer.
For now:

When:
  • Sunday December 21, 2008. Starts at 12 noon. Pre-race meeting at 11:55am. We will be set-up by 11:30 to take racers names and give out numbers.

What:
  • A non-race of 32 miles along gravel, pavement, and other surfaces with no real singletrack. Be ready to climb, run, hop barriers and numerous other things while on your bike and while carrying your bike. Bring your cyclocross, mountain, or maybe even big tire equipped road bikes. (see course description below).

Cost:
  • Free

Where:
  • Start/Finish at Klondike Park in St. Charles County off of HWY 94 where refreshments around the fire will also follow. Park next to the Shower House or the lot nearby next to the playground. Start will be near there. FYI, water is off and the Shower House is closed at Klondike this time of year.

Course:
  • Starts in Klondike Park. It will loop around part of the park and then exit the park down to the Katy Trail. Route heads east on the Katy until Terry Rd. Left onto Terry. Continue up Terry until it ends at Duke road. Turn right onto Duke. Continue on Duke until Matson hill gravel road. Right on Matson down the hill until the Katy trail. Turn left heading east on the Katy Trail. Continue on the Katy until the Hamburg Trail. Turn left onto the Hamburg. Veer right on the Hamburg under Hwy 94. Climb the Hamburg until the drop down into Lost Valley. Turn left down the gravel road into Lost Valley. Head straight up the next gravel hill continuing to follow signs along old road and other detours in Lost Valley. Exit Lost Valley at main parking lot. Cross Hwy 94 to access Hamburg trail again. Head south on the Hamburg to the Katy Trail, making a right on the Katy heading west back to Klondike. At the Klondike Boat ramp turn right onto the gravel path that heads to the front entrance of Klondike Park. Follow course signs back to the finish line near the start area.
  • Along the route will be sections of barriers and other obstacles to keep things interesting. Be alert. There will also be course marshals at some of these locations who will have zip ties to hand out to verify you've made it to that point of the route.
  • The course will be marked with tape and arrows detailing the route. Maps may be posted here as the date draws near.
Additional info:
  • With no true singletrack in the course this non race will happen whether it rains, snows, or is sunny and bright and whether its ridiculously cold or unseasonably warm.
  • You must be entirely self-supported for this non race. We will not be providing any assistance along the route, nor will we be sweeping the route to check for lagging riders. Please understand what this means.
  • The route is open to other users such as walkers and other cyclists. About 30% of the course is on roads (gravel and paved) open to vehicle traffic. Ride responsibly and follow all traffic laws.
  • Expected finishing times are from a little under 2 hours to maybe three hours. Average time around 2:15.
  • Decoration of person and/or bike in an appropriate seasonal or event theme will be rewarded.
A note on bike choice:
  • A cyclocross bike is probably the best bike choice. I've ridden all parts of the course (that are meant to be ridden) on my cross bike with 35c tires. Larger tires will offer more control in some sections, but could slow you down on the fast sections of the course. Much skinnier tires could require you to run sections and/or risk flatting.
  • This is just a recommendation on bike. Ride what you got. Cyclocross, mountain bike, your dad's hybrid, or whatever you think will work. Just come out and have fun.
Sponsors:

Thanks to our sponsors for providing prizes, schwag, and promotional help.

That's the greatest Spoke Card yet! That face shows Seagal in his darkest moment of true agony, i.e. a CX race.

CockPuncher said...

This sounds awesome. I assume someone will be pulling a BOB w/ the beer?

Sandbox/Gino said...

Coach-
This is no mere spoke card. Just might be showing up in a mailbox near you courtesy of the Hub...

Puncher-
I think I will definitely give you bonus points if you pull a BOB full of beer for this. Major points if you finish the race with the BOB still attached to your bike.

Doctor said...

I just finished turning my hill bike into a singlespeed CXMAS bike. Hopefully the roids I ordered off the interweb pay off for this one. There's not a test is there?

Casey Ryback said...

We could try administering a test, and if you DON'T test positive for SOMETHING (i.e 'roids, pot, alcohol, jenkem) you are dq'd.

Doctor said...

Each substance should have it's own point value, resulting in an equivalent amount taken off of your time. If you have jenkem and PCP in your system you could win the race regardless of your actual time.

Mason Storm said...

Aloha Bitches! CXmas will be amazing! I will be back on the mainland next week, so if anyone wants to go do some work on the course holla at your boi!
M. Storm

Nico Toscani said...

Mason, have the Dr. take a look at your boil before I "holla" at it.

Doctor said...

The Doctor respectfully declines to look at Storm's Boil.

Mason Storm said...

BOI !
Please Dr. this boil is keeping me from all sorts of "honeymoon" activities. I need your assistance! Seriously though I just got done pounding some pale ales on Waikiki beach......suck on that!

Marc said...

Oh yeah, well it's 30 degrees and dreary in Milwaukee! Oh, wait, this weather sucks. Forget I said anything. Carry on.

Casey Ryback said...

Well, you better be CX'ing it up, Shop Ministor...

haricots verts said...

Is the course suitable for a trailer?

Does it have to be a "seasonal" costume?

Sandbox/Gino said...

Nate-
All of the rideable parts can take a trailer, but think cyclocross. Can you carry said trailer and the bike over obstacles? If so your "prize" will reflect that.
Any costume is welcome. Those that fit the theme will likely receive greater reward. But if you want to show up wearing an "out-of-seasonal" costume like only a speedo on a 30deg day then you just might come out on top.

I have an iPod and it was hooked up to my old computer, but my old computer got a virus and I had to throw it out. I have all of my music on my iPod. I bought a new computer and I downloaded iTunes on it, how can I get the music on my iPod into the iTunes library of my new computer? I've done it before, but I have no idea how. It keeps saying that the iPod is already synced to another computer, and asking me if I want to delete all of the music on it. I want to keep the music on my iPod. Please help me, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks! [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

I've been ripping songs off of videos using video2mp3 for a really long while and then a week ago, I got a computer virus--but I don't think it was from ripping but could it be? Also, if the songs are already on my iPod, does the iPod retain the virus as well yet is just unaffected by the virus? I saved all my music files on a flash drive before I reformatted my computer and I haven't installed any anti virus software yet--should I reload all my files or no?
