Stopped by the final race in the MFG Cross series yesterday, held at Woodland Park. The occasional sprinkle, and cool weather made for a perfect cross day. I can’t express how pumped I am that Seattle has finally allowed a cross event to take place within the city limits. Woodland Park was a great park to host the event, and I hope that all that attended had a good time. I didn’t make it to the wrap party at Brouwer’s post race, but I’m sure it was a blast. I snapped a few photos and got to see Benny, though I missed his race. Cross racing is a great spectator sport, and Raleigh even had test bikes available if people wanted to get muddy.
My computer is in need of many updates, so I can’t see the posted results, but you can HERE
I hope that James, riding for uBRDO did well, he has been in the top of Men’s Cat 3 for this series. Good on ya.
If you attended, or even if you didn’t, but you are supportive of more races being held in Seattle City Parks, please let your voice be heard. For whatever reason, the supporters of these events are not as vocal as the few negative Nancy’s out there. So sing sweet songs from your rooftops to the City of Seattle – and let them know that you encourage them in working with local race promoters. You can email these folks at the Seattle Parks Department with your kudos:
