If you’re trying to decide what to do on Sunday, you might want to roll over to Portland International Raceway to partake in a special edition of the Cross Crusade.
In addition to the typical Crusade craziness, this weekend is also the second annual SSCXWC — the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships. We wrote about the event earlier this week, but we missed a few details.
According to an email update on the event from Cross Crusade ringleader Brad Ross, the SSCXWC will be the last race of the day and the addition of the event means that the, “hilarity and stupidity factor will be ramped even that much higher than a normal Crusade Race (if there even is such a thing).”
Ross also reminds us that free beer will be flowing all day. All you’ve got to do is spend $4 on a Cross Crusade pint glass and you’re all set (don’t forget your ID).
In addition to free beer, cyclocross fans will be treated to some of the sport’s top stars. Olympian Adam Craig (who Ross says will be “sporting his infamous muscle suit”), National Champion Ryan Trebon (will be “whining about the mud”), and top pro Carl Decker (will be “rallying around the track in his 450 hp Subaru), and last year’s winner Barry (“Barely Legal”) Wicks.
And, as always, the expo area will feature coffee from Chris King, Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal, belgian waffles and frites, brats, and more.
It should be a great day for racing. See you out there.
