In addition to the second annual Cyclocross Clinics hosted by champion cyclocross racerJake Wells this weekend, the Vail Recreation District is excited to announce the first-ever Cyclocross Race at Maloit Park in Minturn! The race will be held Wednesday, and registration and race details are available online at http://www.vailrec.com. Clinics will be held Saturday and Sunday and will cater to both adults and children. According to Wells, cyclocross races consist of many laps, approximately 1.5 to 2 miles each, on a course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, hills and obstacles requiring the rider to dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstructions and remount. This is the last chance to race in a VRD cycling event for 2012, so bring your cross or mountain bike and join in the fun!
