This is a reminder to all that the IUSF Fall Cycling Series will be taking place this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! Unfortunately, registration closed yesterday, but for those not participating, come on out to watch! Thursday will be the annual Little 500 bike Cyclocross event on and around the track at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The weather looks like proper cyclocross weather, so participants should enjoy some mud and cowbells (hopefully) - spectators come watch as riders tackle the challenges of hay bales, stairs, track-pavements transitions, and more! Friday will be a new spin on an old event - the Duathlon. This year the Duathlon will take place both at and around Bill Armstrong Stadium with some running on Jordan Ave followed by 2 miles on the cinder Little 500 track and then some more running down to Assembly Hall and wrapping up at the Hall of Champions Concourse. Saturday will bring the now-annual Street Sprints competition on North Jordan Ave. This is probably the most exciting event in which participants will drag race from a dead stop down North Jordan in an all-out sprint.

Hope to see you all there either riding or spectating! Maybe you'll see some entertainment like this:
Sometimes, you forget to jump OVER the hay bale and run into it... (pay no mind to who it is in the picture). Photo courtesy of Lauren Gowdy.
