This might repeat a bit of the information posted above, but here's the latest info for CX on Sunday:

Information for Race 3 of the Velo Espresso Fog City Cyclocross, Minogue Park, 17 August 2014.

Or register and pay on the day.

Race Format: 45 mins + 1 lap (Bell Lap)

Access to Minogue Park is off Tui Ave. The southern end of Tui Ave is a one way Exit onto Forest Lake Road, so you will need to enter via Forest Lake Road, Walsh Street, Huia Ave. When you get to the driveway on Tui Ave, please drive slowly and watch for pedestrians. You can park at the far end of the driveway, opposite the toilet. Parking is on the grass, please be careful of wet and soft patches. Try to take up the least amount of space possible to leave enough parking for people visiting the Model Railway.

Race HQ will be up the hill and visible from the parking area.

After the race, you are welcome to drive into town to Velo Espresso for a free shower. Please bring your own towel. A map and directions for gaining access to the secure parking garage are included in this info and will be available on the day.

Prizegiving will be held at good George Brewery, 32A Somerset Street, Frankton, from 1:30pm. A map is also available for this.

The weather is doing a fantastic job or surcharging the ground water system, so we can be assured of some good soggy chamois action on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Cheers
The Velo Espresso & Fog City Cyclocross Crew

I was looking forward to another session of Minogue Park punishment unfortunately this morning I did this :cry: : http://iconosquare.com/p/784927815874387567_594250262

All the best for this weekend - I have no doubt it'll be another great course.

I'll see you guys next month at the Avantidrome. Or maybe next weekend in Vegas, hopefully my foot's come right by then ...

But it's a bicycle race, it's not like you have to ru...

Oh wait. :(

Rest up Danny. Would be awesome to see you there if your foot can handle the jandal and isn't so swollen you can only wear jandals. :blink:

Weather is looking amazing. Might be a bit chilly, so maybe we'll even get some fog!!
