Are you ready to race!!! (Read with fight announcer voice)

Clear your weekends!! MABRA's has a fall full of 'cross races (See Sept. - Dec. in the calendar below). There were some weekends last year where there wasn't much racing. Doesn't look like that will be an issue this year. If its Saturday or Sunday, it's 'cross time.

Jim - time to get the cones and barriers out and meet over at the Comcast Center!

Congrats to Chris Mattingly

Proteus rider Chris Mattingly gets big props for cracking the top 10 this week at Capital Cross Classic out in Reston. Chris finished with a sweet 10th place finish in wicked cold weather in a huge field of something like 90 guys in the end of the season finale.

Great job Chris!
