Pretty Cool
to bolster interest the hosts of the Lily Ponds Cyclocross Race are offering a 5 dollar off entry fee to mountainbikers without a USCF license (as to balance the annoying one day fee)
seems like a cool thing to do
I did the event last year (as well did my brother and Evan)
I got my ass kicked in the Bs (sometimes known as the KILLER BEES)
had a great time
(not to mention the free massage afterwards was pretty sweet)

read as follows
the message is from a person I have never met
or maybe I have....the cycling culture is small
he seems to be associated with one of my comic book character arch enemies.....KEVIN DILLARD a member of NCVC
one of the few mountainbike members of NCVC
one of the oldest cycling clubs in Washington DC
and also the former sponsor of one of my Clydesdale Comic Book Arch rival characters; Bill Davis
(well, maybe Bill Davis is more like a pro-wrestler....he is definitely a character!)
((if you care.....go to a race report to read how I got played by Bill Davis
in a 22 mile single track clydesdale event))

((((you have to scroll down past the images))))
should be a good event
if I am not celebrating Indian Summer with my family and my dogs in the Outer Banks I most certainly be there...cross bike and all

it is actually Lilypons
it looks like the money goes to a good cause

Hi Joel,
One of my mtn biking teammates, Kevin Dillard, (who is coming to lay down smack against the roadies at this cross race) suggested that I send you a bit of info for your blog.

We'll give any mtn bikers w/o a uscf license a $5 dollar discount for the race as they'll need to purchase a one-day license for $5.


2004 Ed Sander Memorial Century and Cross Race
October 2nd
Buckeystown, MD

In August 2001, NCVC member Ed Sander passed away in a training accident. To honor his memory, National Capital Velo Club and Edís former employer, Lilypons, hold an annual century ride with the proceeds going to a college scholarship fund for Edís only son, Chris.

Last year, we added a cross race to the day to spice the event up a bit. This race will be the First Event in the MABRA Cyclocross Series and the preseason warmup for the Verge Mid Atlantic Cyclocross Championship Series.
