AACX Results

The 2016 edition of AACX at South River Farm was  a great success. We had nearly perfect weather and some new challenging feature to the course, notably the new “run up” that that challenged people to ride it successfully. Thanks to all who came out for the race and spread the word about the more interesting course for next year. Each year we make it even better. Full results with lap times from RaceWorksTiming.com: 2016 AACX Results. A big thanks to Race Director Iain Banks who worked tirelessly to put on the race. Also thanks to our partner Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks for the use of the park and the help with course grooming – everyone needs access to a backhoe! – we couldn’t do it without them.

Ride or Run, that is the question of the day!

Church Creek Time Trial Results

Thanks to all who braved the weather today to make it out to the Time Trial. True to the spring we have been having, the rain began in ernest at about race time and came down hard for the next 3 hours. But the officials did a great job of getting everyone off on time and reports were that riders warmed up a lot once underway.

Results are available at USA Cycling

Waiting for the start.
