Cyclocross season is fast approaching and from what we keep hearing, a lot of you are just slightly excited! So grab your calendar and get a pen, we've got all your important GSX season dates.
 

KICK-OFF MEETING

If you want to race CX this year come out to the CX kick-off meeting on Wednesday August 27 at 6 PM at the Glotman Simpson Cycling Club office. This is when we all get to meet one another, go over the supported race calendar, pick up pre-ordered kit and answer any questions you have. We will also have very limited inventory for those wanting to purchase skinsuits, leg warmers, jackets and gloves.


SKILLS SESSION

We are changing it up this year, instead of Jericho we will hold this clinic on the Shore. Bob Welbourn will be covering control at speed with some training principles and prep for the first race of the season at Aldor Acres the following day.

Where: Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, meet at the parking lot at end of Lillooet Road, North Vancouver
WhenAugust 30, 8:30 AM
Length: 2 hours
Cost: Free to all 2014 registered Club Members
*We will hold a second clinic later in the season, date TBD


2014 SUPPORTED RACE DATES

What are supported races? GSX is for all Glotman Simpson Cycling members that want to train and race during CX season. We don't pretend to be an elite group of CX ninja masters, we just like dirt, beer, bacon and laughs!  As such, consider GSX your second home and when we support races we want you to have as much fun as we do.

GSX supported races have:

  • G2 in case you're so cold or toasted you need to hide in a truck!
  • Two large tents
  • Table
  • Trainers for warming up and cooling down
  • Chairs
  • Alete hydration drink
  • Gels and bars
  • 2 sets of pit wheels. If you need a wheel and it's in the pits, it's yours!
