Bicycle Racing, Apples, and Mud, Oh My!

CENTURIA—The 9th edition of the Baker Orchard Cyclocross Bike Race proved to be just what cyclocross should be—muddy and challenging.

Just under 200 racers found conditions similar to what the Europeans would call a great day for a cyclocross race.

Saturdays all morning drizzle made racers deal with the elements, and put on a great show for spectators.

Complete results for all classes can be found at www.cx-mn.com

In the Kid’s Race, a little help from dad is needed when the barriers are half as tall as you are, but the future stars give it Olympic effort.
