YGR CX Stamp

There are a bunch of things going on this week to keep everyone busy; races, rides, a post race party, an advocacy meeting, a fund raiser, a ladies night out and a legal hearing. Plenty of opportunities to get involved and have some fun.

 

New Belgium Cyclo-cross end of season Party

Because we ran out of light at our last race, we'd like to gather folks (spectators, racers and volunteers) for a quick get together and finish up our raffles and say thanks!

All are welcome to attend, but we especially want to see the Open & Singlespeed categories, as well as racers who participated in 4 out of 5 races. We'll be picking a lucky winner for a NBB cruiser, as well as some Rio Grand gift cards. We'll have some swag on hand to throw out to the crowd as well. And of course, there will be beer for sale.

Tuesday, November 6th, 6pm - 7pm
