Time to put together your weekend plans.
Whether you like cyclocross or not, you’ve got to be excited and inspired by the season of Team S&M CX cyclocross rider Clara Honsinger. She just keeps getting better and better. Last weekend at a very challenging UCI World Cup race she went from a start of around 40th place to finish 19th. 19th! That’s against the very best racers in the world. And she was the 2nd place Under-23 rider. On
Saturday Sunday, Honsinger will look to close out her big season with a strong showing in the U23 race at the World Championships in Denmark. If you’re not lucky enough to be there in person, roll over to Breadwinner Cafe on Williams Avenue where they’ll open early to see the live feed.
And that’s just one of the great ideas we’ve got for you. Check out all of our upcoming event picks below…

Endless Summer Saturdays Club Roule Ride – 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Crema (NE)
I’ve been watching this weekly ride from afar and the turnout and vibe looks really strong. It’s a nice intermediate pace that appeals to a lot of riders. Expect 25-30 miles with a good dose of climbing. More info here.
