Bilenky Junkyard Cross

The best race of the year is coming up this weekend, and with the condtions of last year, the race became even more epic than ever before. A cross race in two feet of snow built the reputation of this classic event and can only serve to increase the attendance for this year.

There is so much fun to be had at this event. I don’t think I ever laughed as much in a race as I did last year. For 5$ and an afternoon in a junkyard, you will experience an event unlike any other. What other brand of misfits would risk tetnus and a junk car pile collapse in the sake of cyclocross than Philly cyclocrossers?

There is a thin coating of snow on the ground as of this afternoon and more to come on Sunday. Snow does not make this event fun, it is the nature of our family and the love of this sport mixed perfectly with the setting that the Bilenky junkyard presents.

In discusssions with some of the Bilenky course building elves, I found out that this course is going to be somewhat technical with features that will give people deeper chills than the snowy dumpster flyover of last year.

Here is a hint.
Here is a video that I shot last year.
