Florida 'Cross #3: Orlando

Just got home from the third stop on the Florida Cross Series: Orlando. The course was flat, fast and fun! Three barriers made good transitions essential and the wide open course was all about horsepower. Paul Kavan took top spot in the Men's A race.

The weather was anything buy 'cross-like, with sunny skies and temperatures in the 80's. Just as I got home it started to sprinkle. Figures!

Using the timing chips was a great way to keep the scoring accurate and easy, although some riders had problems because they attached the chips to their helmets or put them in the pockets. They were too far away from the sensors to score accurately. Problem is, if you have a spare bike and need to make a switch, you can't have it on your fork. I tucked mine in the leg of my shorts and had no problems.

Big thanks to TopView Sports, The Cycling Hub and Florida Cycling for putting together another great race! If you have any photos or stories you'd like to share just let us know.

See you all in Sarasota!

I was at the Orlando cross race and had a good time. Now I want to go to the one in Sarasota, but I can't seem to find any information about it online. What can you tell me about details?

there is very little info out there. I'll put the pdf on the blog so you can check it out. It will be a good race although the publicity is limited.
