DCCX, Tandem Style…

DCCX = Washington D.C. Cyclocross race, the fifth race in the 10-race Mid-Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association Cyclocross Series. This particular cyclocross race is noteworthy as was the first of what appear to be four events in the series with a tandem class.  The other three are:

If you live in the DC area and are interested, be forewarned that some of these teams are pretty hardcore cyclocross racers and cyclists.  You’ll definitely have fun, but getting a podium spot could be a stretch.

The DCCX first came to my attention at BikeForums, and then hit my radar again via my daily Google Search engine results in the form of an entry to the In The Crosshairs Blog entitled, DCXX Tandem: The Movie.  The image below will take you to the In The Crosshairs blog entry where you’ll find a summary of the tandem event, the making of the movie and at the bottom of the page the actual Vimeo video.

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
