    Early Birds


    Little update on the Early Birds. This Sunday at least no rain, just some very little drizzel or fog at the first quarter of the ride.

     A good sized group of about 20 riders gathered at the start, Manroville/King Kullen to get going by 7:30am. A nice paceline formed and moved out on the North Route into slight head wind.

    Py's view of the 2008 Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup Weekend

    The 2008 Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup (by Hampton Velo) -- part of the North American Cyclocross Trophy -- took place on Nov. 22/23 in Southampton. It was a great event filled with plenty of action. It was bitter cold and windy on Saturday, but this could not stop any action on the race course.

    Sunday was less windy and this made the sunny day just so much more comfortable, even it was not much warmer at all. A set of exiting races, enjoy some more views:
