On to Hot Springs

It was a tough day in Russellville. First off, you should know that #opcx2013 race director Anthony Moats likes tough courses, and this year's version did not disappoint.  The first half of the course was basically a barrier, followed by a muddy creek crossing, followed by a watt-sucking false flat, followed by a steep walk-up, followed by a brief technical downhill section, followed by a steep paved climb.  The second half was a net descent but had plenty of tricky sections, including another creek crossing, to keep things interesting.

Add some stiff headwinds and unseasonably hot weather in the mid-80s, and you had some very challenging conditions. In true CX spirit, both racers and spectators had a great time.

Results and points are up!

Next the series moves down to Hot Springs.  This will be a great weekend, with the brand new race Cedarglades Cyclocross on Saturday, followed by the perennial mountain bike season closer Attila the Hun on Sunday.  Stay for the whole weekend!
