I now have photos from the Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race on September 12th, 2009 posted for all categories. I had photos posted for all but the last 2 races before I went to Interbike. Unfortunately I got sick soon after I got back and didn’t get much done last week.
Race results can be found on the ACA website by clicking here. We had good turnout although racer numbers were down slightly from last years first race. I’m not sure why but maybe it’s because the cross schedule is getting fuller.
There was lots of good racing action all day. It was cool and overcast most of the day. It finally rained a little during the SM 4 race. About half way the final race, SM 3 and Singlespeeds, the rain really started coming down.
There were a couple spots that were causing crashes. One was the sharp off camber right turn along the parking lot. The other one was the turn at the short, steep drop after the straight section with the start/finish. There also was a crash at the start of the SM Cat 3 race. I made a video of the crashes from some of my photos.
Next Pikes Peak Velo cyclocross race is November 21st at the same location.
