This is a big week for cyclocross! Lance was out at CrossVegas last week and is training for the Grand Prix in Gloucester - can a Dirt Derby appearance be long coming?

To help celebrate the launch of the Lonestar Cyclocross Series presented by Capoforma this Saturday at the 2nd Annual Pflugerville Grand Prix, Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop and Violet Crown are hosting a cyclocross clinic this Thursday. This is a great chance to hone your bike handling skills and get an introduction to the coolest thing you can do on two wheels. Bring a 'cross bike, mountain bike, or any sturdy road bike that can ride on grass. Meet at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop, Austin's Cyclocross Headquarters, for a quick meet and greet before rolling out at 5:30 to go practice, returning to the shop at 7:30. For more info call Eileen or Stack or the shop: (512) 473-0222

Mountain Bikers! Its time to bounce back from Palo Duro and get your bike handling honed at the Dirt Derby Presented by Hammer Nutrition so you are ready for Power Pedal! We will be hosting the first Texas Short Track race at Lake Bryan on October 11 - unlike the Dirt Derby, this will be on a totally separate course from the AggieCross races we are staging that morning, and will include NEW trail sections that will not be part of the XC course.
