Double Cross Weekend
With two races to choose from this weekend, plus the added pressures of laundry and skinning my cat, what’s a girl to do? I decided to do some “research” (Google surfing) to weigh one against the other in anticipation of the onslaught.
The Southern Cross race on Sunday in Altona has a very squiggly course map:
And unlike the fledgling St. Malo race on Sunday, this race has history so I was able to check out some video from last year’s race which gave me an idea (and terrible screen shots) of what lies ahead.
They have the mayor out performing his honourable and mayoral barbequely duties:
Not to be outdone by Menno Cross, they will probably have mud. We’ll see how it tastes in comparison:
AND you can ride whatever kind of bike you want, like this super awesome number from last year with a flowered banana seat. Sweet!!
Did I mention they will have beer?
