This past Sunday, on 10-10-10, South Central Racing put on the 2nd annual “Cross at the River” cyclocross race. Racers made multiple laps on a course which began near the footbridge at the end of East Main Street and made its way as far downriver as the steps at the whitewater park’s new wave, before returning upstream. According to race director (and owner of Central Colorado Kitchens) Doug Robeson, the course was “A nice blend of dirt path, trails, pavement, grass and a couple of hills.”
“We had around 280 racers,” Doug told me, “almost double last year.” Cross at the River was sanctioned by the American Cycling Association this year and was the first of nine events on the Colorado Cross Cup circuit. “They scaled the circuit back this year, so each event is more prestigious”- and better attended.
Here’s a video I put together of the 2009 race followed by a gallery of images I snapped Sunday. Enjoy!
