    Womens CX clinic at DCCX (DC)

    DCCX supports women's racing with free women-only clinics and a $1000 purse (matching the men)- please show you appreciation by attending our event- we want to have the biggest women's field in our series history (as we did last year). Also, promoters love it when you pre-reg early- it's stressful to put up the money then wonder if riders are going to show up!


    DCCX is rolling out the welcome mat for women racers with a special DC-ChiX clinic.

    Washington, D.C.'s only cyclocross race is already offering an equal payout for elite women and men, with a $1,000 purse going 10 deep. The Cat 1,2,3 Women's race is sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

    Now female crossers can bone up on their skills the day before.

    Hub Racing's Arley Kemmerer, the 2009 Ed Sander elite winner, will host a free clinic for women racers on Oct. 24 at 2pm. The clinic takes place on the Armed Forces Retirement Home -- on the DCCX course. This will give those women signed up to race on Sunday a chance to go over the course in advance with a seasoned pro.

    Topics for the 90-minute women's clinic will include mounting/dismounting, cornering, line selection and starts. Plus a chance to preview the DCCX course.

    Any woman who is registered to race can sign up for the clinic at no extra cost. To participate, you must first pre-register for DCCX and then send an email to DCMTB Clinic. The clinic is free, but riders must email to the address above in advance in order to be able to get on the grounds for the event.

    DCCX - Presented by Family Bike Shop - is Washington, DC's only cyclocross race. The third-annual event will be held on October 25th on the grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home. The historic venue near Georgia Ave. in the heart of Washington is off-limits to the general public the rest of the year.

    The race, sponsored by the DCMTB team, is part of the nine-part series of the Mid-Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association. DCCX registration opened last month and there are already almost 300 pre-registered racers. Proceeds from the race are donated to help veterans living at the facility.

    The Belgians Are Back for DCCX!

    Belgium has ale, frites, waffles, the European Union and -- as every cyclist knows -- cyclocross. In a historic arrangement again this year, the Belgian Embassy will be a sponsor of the “Lil’ Belgians” kids race at the October 25 DCCX cyclocross race. The kids, age three to nine, will take spins around the short track next to the DCCX course at the Armed Forces Retirement Home. Every participant is a winner, earning some chocolates for themselves.

    Just as it was last year, the kids race is being organized again this year by Joel Gwadz, author of a famous bike blog Gwadzilla, father of two boys and a man not afraid to race in a cheerleader's outfit. Unlike last year, the Belgian truffles and Cote d’ Or chocolates, which are donated by the embassy, will be shared with a few lucky winners of the men's and women's races that day. Other swag for winners includes beer from Blue Ridge Restaurant on Wisconsin Ave, bike gear from Family Bike Shop in Crofton, Maryland and gift certificates for Stickey Fingers bakery in Mt. Pleasant. Elite men and women winners earn cash, sponsored by Family Bike Shop and Whole Foods Market

    DCCX course work today went really well. the course is looking sharp!

    Amazingly, despite all the recent rain, the course isn't muddy at all. I did several laps and my bike is basically clean- drainage there is very good.

    BikeReg MABRAcross’ “Big One”

    Press Contact Information: BikeReg.com MABRAcross Series
    SpectaSport LLC; K...@SpectaSport.com
    Ken Getchell, Account Manager, 610-397-1950

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
    11-18-2009; Conshohocken, PA, USA: Last year’s inaugural (as a MABRAcross
    series event) DCCX cyclocross in Washington DC set an all-time
    BikeReg.com MABRAcross series record for attendance that still
    stands. But expectations are high that the race will shatter its own
    attendance record, especially after the success of last year. “If you
    look around the country, second year races usually have a large jump
    in attendance over their inaugural year; especially if it was a well-
    run race the first time out of the box,” says MABRAcross publicist Ken
    Getchell.
    Set in a secluded corner of the Armed Forces Retirement Home in
    Northwest Washington DC, DCCX has galvanized the local cycling
    community as they support the only cyclocross race of the year
    actually held within the border of Washington DC. Mainstream
    companies such as Whole Foods Market, Sticky Finger Bakery and Gam
    Printers have joined with cycling-oriented companies such as
    presenting sponsor Family Bike Shop to support an event that some say
    was the race of the year in 2008.
    After the success of last year, classes are expected to sell out this
    year, so riders should pre-register on BikeReg.com to assure their
    participation in one of the Mid Atlantic’s most popular events.
