Zipp OVCX by James Billiter

Lots of news is coming out of the Midwest as the Zipp OVCX Tour presented by Papa John’s gears up for this year’s final month of racing.  Race Director Brendan Canty reports that the course for this weekend’s Kentucky State Cyclocross Championships / Commonwealth Eye Surgery Promotion Cross will be, “on the faster side.”  The race will be held in Lexington’s Veterans Park, a well-known destination for mountain bikers and trail runners, and will also feature concessions by Bourbon n’ Toulouse, Lexington’s noted Cajun and Creole restaurant.  

The fast course in Lexington will be good preparation for the even faster course in Columbus, Ohio the following week.  Kyle Wingler of the Infirmary Mound Cross says the very popular course is “scary fast.”  And, speaking of scary fast, the organizers of the Indianapolis Double Cross Weekend have announced that world-famous Indy Car racing driver Thomas Scheckter will join Mayors Greg Ballard of Indianapolis and Charles Henderson of Greenwood as special guests of the St. Mary’s Child Center Cyclocross that comprises the Saturday half of the double-header weekend in Indianapolis on December 4 and 5.

The organizers of the Indianapolis Double Cross Weekend have also made special lodging arrangements that are so good that even some local riders may want to take advantage of them.  The special rates, which are only good for rooms booked by Monday, November 22, are at the Fort Harrison State Park Inn at the same venue and within walking distance of Saturday’s course.  Details and other information about the St. Mary’s Child Center Cyclocross can be found at  Information and registration for all of the remaining Zipp OVCX Tour presented by Papa John’s events can be found on
