Toronto club hosts UCI races, clinic

The Midweek Cycling Club will host the UCI-C2 International Pro-Am Cyclo-Cross on November 10 -11 at Centennial Park in Etobicoke, outside of Toronto, Ontario. Races will begin at 10am each day and run until the early evening. Adding a flair of Belgium and Holland, the Thistletown Lion's Club will have beer tents directly adjacent to the course (for spectators only, of course!). Information and a technical guide for the race can be found on the club's website.

The club also hosts a weekly cyclo-cross clinic at the site of the UCI race, allowing novices to learn the skills necessary to tackle the event from experienced, accomplished 'cross riders. There are special sessions for youth 10 to 16 years of age, and the course changes every week to give students experience against the full gamut of obstacles in cyclo-cross. Instruction and guidance are provided by expert cyclocross racers Carolyne Haille, Peter Morse, Lorne Anderson and Scott Doel. Sessions start at Centennial Park at 6pm Tuesdays until December.
