The Madison is a fun two-person relay race where partners tag off to each other to do their alternating laps. We ask that a faster rider team up with a slower rider with the intention of balancing the field or perhaps get to know someone that you do not normally ride with. It’s supposed to be fun, so don’t sandbag. You can invite your spouse or a friend or people new to cyclocross. New riders are able to purchase a single day race permit along with their race registration. Reminder that registration closes Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. for everyone.
There will be 3 races.
Race 1: 9:00 a.m.
This race is for parent/kid combinations, kid/kid combinations and beginners to cyclocross. It will be a half hour long. All U11 and U13 riders must do this race, along with any U15’s who would like a shorter, less competitive race. New riders who are developing CX bike handling skills may also be best suited to this race. If a parent/adult rides with a child in this race, they may also ride in one of the other two later races.
Race 2: 10:00 a.m.
Race 3: 11:45 a.m.
These 2 races are open to all categories of riders other than U11 and U13. Each is one hour long. Riders may choose to ride in one of these races, you may not do both. Race 3 will be more competitive.
Teams can be of any combination and we often have parent/child, spouses, friends, young/older riders, experienced rider with a newbie. Just don’t make it two fast riders.
We will organize all teams in advance. If you have a madison partner set up, please notify Bob Woods by Thursday at noon (the sooner the better). Bob needs to know your names, rider numbers (indicate day registration if applicable), and the race you would like to ride in.
If you do not have a partner in mind, please send your name, rider number and choice of race to Bob and he will find a partner for you. Again, the deadline is Thursday noon.
The number of riders this year is high. We cannot accommodate partnering riders on the spot on Sunday morning. You need to contact Bob in advance (as above) in order to participate.
