The North American UCI cyclo-cross calendar continues this weekend with another double: Toronto, Ontario hosts a two-race weekend while the Mid-Atlantic Cyclo-cross presented by SRAM series heads to Granogue and Wissahickon for its “Queen Weekend”.
It is the second weekend for the MAC, and series leaders Davide Frattini and Laura Van Gilder will try to extend their respective leads on the tough courses in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Luke Keough leads the U23 standings while sitting fourth overall in the men’s standings.
Team Kona's US 'cross champion Ryan Trebon and teammate Barry Wicks chose to skip the Toronto races, where the formidable Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld trio Tim Johnson, Jeremy Powers and Jamey Driscoll will be heavy favourites, and will race in Granogue and Wissahickon instead.
Racing begins Saturday, October 17 on the private 400 acre Granogue Estate near Wilmington, Delaware that is opened to both racers and spectators for this annual event.
The following day the racers head 25 miles north to the 33-acre Ludwig's Corner Horse Show and Country Fair Grounds in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. For more information on the two races, see BikeReg.com
