Hammer or be Hammered

Last year's Anvil was awesome, so I can't wait for this double-race weekend to come. It looks like Masters start at 12:30, and ladies start at 1:45, so if we're bold, we can race in Kanata, then head over to the Equestrian Centre! Elites have plenty of time, racing at 3pm.

Here's the info I've borrowed from

Ride with Rendall will be putting on a weekend of cyclocross racing in Ottawa on November 13-14 (the weekend after the Canadian Nationals). It will be two separate days of racing. Here is the schedule:

Course open for training - 10:30 to 11:30

U13-U15 - 11:30 to 11:50

Course open for training - 11:50 to 12:25

Master A-B-C, U19 men - 12:30 to 1:15

Course open for training - 1:15 to 1:40

Women Open (Elite, Maters, U19) - 1:45 to 2:30

Course open for training - 2:30 to 2:55

Elite/U23 Men - 3:00 to 4:00

Each day with a separate prize purse. The prize lists for the Elite/ Espoir men and Women's fields are based on the number of entries in each race. To help build up the numbers in the women's field to reach the highest payout, we are having a women's open category (elite women, masters women, junior women are combined. Note; there will still be prizes for the first junior and master ride). For out of town riders coming out to Nationals that are interested in staying in Ottawa until the race , we will do our best to find host housing.

In addition to the elite races, the will be races and prizes for all categories.

Note: Please don't jeoprodize our use of the venue by training at the facility prior to the event. The equestrian park is not open for riding/training until race day.

And, how about some cyclocross night ride races!

how cool (literally) would that be!

A wed night thing?

mooneys bay?
greens creek?
some of the greenspace (conroy pit)?
then the final frontier... in the gats late Nov ?

all done at night with night lights or whatever...

I heard they do this in TO.
