Walk and roll

Typically, fall means one thing to die-hard cyclists: cross season. And this year’s season will go slip-sliding away this Sat., Dec. 1, as Fort Lewis College Cycling hosts the final race in the Zia Taqueria 4 Corners Cyclocross Series. The racing takes place at Ray Denison Memorial Field with three waves of racing.

The first wave, at 10 a.m., is a 1-mile kids races with two categories, 6 and under; and 7–11. Durango Devo and FLC racers will lead a pre-race ride at 9:45 a.m. to give kids a preview and help with their skills.

At 11 a.m., the Open Women, Men B and Men 50+ will race. This wave will feature FLC cyclists Tristen Musselman, Anna Schehrer and Kelsay Lundberg as well as the rest of the women’s CX team. The Open Men and Men 35+ categories will start at 12 noon and race for 50 minutes. Many of Durango’s top cyclists, including Todd Wells, Ned Overend, Troy Wells and Travis Brown will test FLC riders Kobi Gyetvan, James Hilyer, Nash Dory, Thomas Gauthier and the rest of men’s team.

Both the mens and womens Hawks are looking to build their form in advance of the 2018 Collegiate Cyclocross National Championships in Louisville, Ky., Dec. 11-16.

Mountain bikes are welcome at all races and registration starts at 9 a.m. Entry fee is $25.

And for those who just like the mayhem that comes from racing skinny tires on snow, cyclocross makes for a great spectator sport. Don’t forget your cow bells.
