I'm happy (and relieved) to announce that we'll be racing CJCX out at Bush Acres again this year. It was a little touch-and-go due to some early scheduling conflicts but we've got those ironed out. We weren't sure our plan B was going to be ready in time, so it's nice to be heading back out to BAs. 


There are a couple of things to take note of:

1) These aren't really bike races/rides as much as they are celebrations of Ronny and Alli's wedding anniversary (Tuesday Sept 6th) and Alli's 29th birthday (Tuesday Sept 13th).  They just happen to have a cyclocross theme to them. Members of the Fort Collins cycling community are specifically invited to attend.

2) As noted above, we'll only be at BA's on the 6th and 13th. THe Ciclismo Youth Foundation will be hosting Short Track MTB races on the 20th and 27th.  More info on these soon. I'm guessing you can race your CX bike if you'd like.

3) This year we're going to start CJCX with a quick run/jog/walk (if you want) around the 1.5 mile course.  Runners off at 515 and back on the bike at 530. 

And the usual CJCX Copy and Paste from previous years:

Year number 11 for CJCX! 

Crazy Joseph Saperstein started these rides 11 years ago in FoCo public parks as a way to get in shape for the CX season (obviously), YGR took them over after he fled to the Bubble for financial reasons, then to Boston. Word on the streets is that the Republic revoked his pass and he was forced to return to CO. Perhaps we'll get him to come up to grace us with his presence. If not, that's cool too, he's kind of a creep.
The rides had been held at local parks but when the man got wind of them we had to take our message underground. That's when the man, the myth, the Ronny Bush stepped in. In 2012 RB and his wife started allowing us to race on their West FoCo property.

We'll again be enjoying 8 acres of hogback bliss owned by Ronny Bush and his wife Alli. The terrain is similar to that of the Dixon Reservoir area. They're opening up their yard and their bathroom to us for Tuesdays Sept 6th and 13th. We'll fire off 20 min races starting at 5:30. Each race will include an A pace, B pace and a C pace. We'll keep going until we're out of light.
Speaking of light, there's not a lot of it this time O year so bring your bike lights for the ride home.

There's plenty of parking if you need to race over in the tin coffin.
These FREE training rides are open to guests with any kind of bike. Feel free to come out and mix it up in the races or just ride on your own on course.
As always, if you feel you need to swear, poke people with sticks, pee on things or generally act like a jerk, please train elsewhere. We're lucky to have the opportunity to use this property so it is imperative that we treat it and the hosts with the utmost respect. Thankfully, we've never ever had an issue with this. High fives all around.  Please also be respectful of the Bush's neighbors at Westridge. For the most part they are very tolorant of these events but that could change very easily. 

The course is only open during these races unless you clear it with RB.
There are thorns on course. Get some Stans!
Course is located at 4520 Westridge Dr.

Be sure to thank Ronny and Alli for letting us trample their land. They'll be spectating.

joesapThe Crazy Joe Cross series will indeed be talking place this Sept at a new location and with a slightly abbreviated schedule.  The free 'races' will take place on Sept 6th and 13th at a yet to be determined location. 

The Ciclismo Youth Foundation has added two short track races to the calendar on the final two Tuesdays in Sept so we dropped those dates. There's a scheduling conflict at Bush Acres for the first two Tuesdays in Sept so we're on the hunt for a new venue. We've got a pretty good lead but we're not ready to announce just yet. 

Up to date info will be posted here when its available.

Here is the announcement from LAST year. Remember, we will NOT be at Bush Acres this year. 

If memory serves me correct, we're celebrating 10 years of CJCX!
