Triple Crown of Kensington and Bike Stuff Raffle

Kenzo K

Come out to the triple crown of Kensington Cyclocross races. These cyclocross style urban races are going to be held under the lights at Cione Park between Huntington and Lehigh on Aramingo Avenue in beautiful “Port Fishington” over three Wednesdays in October (7th, 14th, and 21st).

The races are a mix of natural surfaces and pavement/concrete on pretty much a flat course with barriers, twists, turns, and all the fun you can pack into 40 minutes of racing your bike.

All bicycles are able to enter the rice, but make sure you and your machine can handle tight turns in grass, sand, and on concrete. All racers will be required to wear a helmet, but the entire risk of the evening is on you.

There is a $5 entry free for the race with 50% of the door for each gender going to the winner of the male and female winners, so spread the word because the more racers show up, the greater the purse! Don’t worry ladies; if we do not have a good turn out for your gender, you will still be well compensated for your efforts!

This is a “no class” race, so all “classes” start and finish together, so don’t complain about sandbagging, or racing fast folks because everyone has a chance to win. We will have winners for every evening as well as an overall series winner, so come to all three for a better chance at the overall prize of 20% of all your genders entries for the series! Cold hard cash for some cold hard racing!

Registration starts at 7pm in front of the pool at the corner of Huntington and Aramingo. Racing starts at 8 pm, or as soon as the pea-we football team finishes their practice. There is plenty of parking in this neighborhood, and most if it is very safe. There is a beer store across the street, and Wawa a block away for any of your pre or post race needs. Be respectful to the neighborhood and the residents as well as anyone using the park. Remember that this is a park for children, and they may be there, so be on your best behavior. If you are noticeably drunk, you will not be able to race or hang out at the race.

We need course marshals and some cheer sections, so bring your non-racing friends to help out and heckle you as you try to keep the vomit down.

RAIN OR SHINE! Proceeds from the race are donated to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

In adddition to the race, I and my friend Jenni are doing a raffle in exchange for donations to our Livestrong pages. $5 to Jenni gets you a chance to win sweet pink tires, and $5 to me lets you pick between an S-works helmet or a RELoad bags gift certificate.

    Why is it called a triple crown if there is only one race?

    err i can’t read, sorry. I just saw the dates at the top.

  4. ns says:

    can you be a little clearer on the address??? I cant find it on google maps.

  5. Kelly Cline says:

    I hope in the future we can coordinate the dates better as Wednesdays during September and October are traditionally for the Wednesday Night Workouts at the Belmont. The workouts are obviously more beneficial when there are more riders attending. Perhaps we can both benefit in the future by having them on different nights. Just a thought.

    I heard this race got moved to Thursday, is this true?

  7. Hey guys, I went out last night to race (Wednesday) and no one was there! I heard you guys may change the race to tonight? Is this true? You guys have a facebook blog?

      Hey John, Thanks for coming out, but we moved it along to Thursday to avoid conflicting with cross practice at belmont. There is a facebook event page for this event, and it is posted all over. Your best bet it to come here for any up to the minute details.
