SCCCX#2 ST. JOSEPH ISLAND CROSS

Owing to the popularity of the relay race at SCC CX#1, Algoma Bicycle Company has decided to bring the B relay back for St. Joseph Island Cross on Sunday, Sept 27.

 

So…there will be a 60-minute 2-person relay race starting at 11am and a 45-minute individual race starting at 12:45pm. Both races are open to all levels of riders, and riders can compete as a team in the first race and on their own in the second race, if they want extra racing.

 

Between the relay race and the individual race there will a short lap kids’ race suitable for young kids. Older kids are welcome to compete in the relay and/or individual races. We are continuing to offer reduced SCC membership fees for kids’ 12 or under ($10 instead of $30).
