The Cycle University Varsity cyclo-cross program will once again be taking on the Northwest cyclo-cross circuit for 2012. All of these riders and support personnel have been recruited for both their professionalism, ability, sportsmanship, attitude, committment to the sport, and the ability to work in a team setting.

Woolley Cross - Sedro Woolley, WA

I made my way today up to Sedro Woolley for the classic "Woolley Cross", part of the Cascade Cyclocross Series.  I always love this course, for the way it flows, great run ups, wet/spongy ground, and the fact that its on the property of the old Northern State Mental Institution, specifically - the said farm that was operated by the Institution back in the day.
  With much smaller crowds than an SCX or MFG race, the race has an old school feeling that can be summed up as "quality over quantity" specifically in the competition.  Within the first half lap I found myself racing alone as the three guys in front faded out of sight.  I ended up finishing up in 4th place having a fun race and enjoying the day in cold, and wet true Northwest 'Cross conditions.
  Now its time to clean up the bikes and prepare for tomorrows MFG race at Magnuson Park in Seattle.  Ya gotta love double duty.
