It All Kicks Off This Weekend

The 2010 season is officially here, meaning the RRR/FGBC Challenge is about to heat up. Rules for the challenge are still being ironed out—those details will take care of themselves...for now we just need to focus on the next 10 days.

Sunday's Spring Classic in Burxelles, Het Grote Ras, promises lot of hurt and fun, Belgian style.

Details here and here

Next on the schedule is the May 2nd annual mountain bike season opener at Grand Beach.

Also on May 2nd is FOG's All Comers Time Trial at Birds Hill Park. As the race's name implies, all are welcome. No MCA license is required as the FOG groupetto has got your back, insurance-wise at least. This is a perfect opportunity for those RRRers who have been focused on the TT discipline...especially if you're a girl. Lots of points for RRR can be earned here.
