Bob executes a near flawless bike change at Hawthorn Woods. Mind you this is his 2nd of three changes. Damn that boy is good!

Sand Pit Practice on Thursday


View Larger Map
Since the Carpentersville race will feature a sand pit we have decided to move our practice on Thursday to Commissioners Park in Alsip. The park is located at 12600 S. Kedzie Ave.

The park is equipped with lights so we will be able to stay longer than we have been lately. The course will feature a short steep hill that we can utilize a few different ways. Most importantly, there is a double wide sand volley ball pit, much like we will see on Sunday. If you haven't done the Carpentersville race in years past, expect a flat, fast course with a huge sand pit.

We will be bring both flags and barriers to the park, so expect a high quality training session with all of the feeling of a race. We will plan on between 30-40 minutes of "racing" with some skill drills immediately following.
