October 18

October 11

As this is a volunteer run series, we need all riders to help with at least one course set up to keep events running on time. Please use the signup form here.   

We need 6 people for this Friday, Oct 14, 9am at Long Sault and 10 for all the rest of the events, Sundays at 7am. Once volunteer slots fill that event location will no longer be available. 

You will receive a reminder email with details just before your time slot. Thanks so much for continuing to make the EOCX race series a success!

Update Oct 13

Thanks to everyone for signing up son far. We’re full for volunteers for Long Sault but can still use help for the rest of the events. I’d suggested that the number of volunteers for each event would be capped at 10 but truth told we can always use more people, up to 20, just makes the work go smoother and faster, especially if folks can’t make for one reason or another. So if you’ve not volunteered yet, please do! Numbers are still low for Brockville, Cornwall, and Perth events.

October 7

A draft spreadsheet of the Madison teams and race times is ready. I’ve sent an email to all the team coordinators to review and confirm all is good. Please let me know if you are planning to race, submitted a team, and HAVE NOT received that email.

October 3

Get your teams ready! EOCX Madison is coming up. Get the following information together and send it to me at easternontariocyclocross@gmail.com:

  1. Your team name
  2. Your team coordinator (with email address) and partner names
  3. Event you are doing: 9am, 10:30, or 11:30am

Some notes:

  • We currently have 3-4 volunteers but need 10 for setup. Let me know if you can help out when you send your team info
  • Riders can participate in multiple races, however not with the same partner
  • The 10:30 AM is a kids race but partners can be an adult or kid

October 2

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about event and series registration. CCN race reg closes weekly on Wednesday at 11:59pm and reopens again on Sunday. Registration is the available again Sunday to Wednesday for the following weekend’s events. Sorry if that wasn’t clear before. This closing period allows the team to organize chips and race rosters. So there’s always other opportunities to register for EOCX events.

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS! 

1) We need 2-3 people to help with setup this Friday, September 30 at 9am Woodlands Beach in Long Sault. This is a private course that allows us to set up a few days before the event.
