Reigning U.S. Junior National Champ Zach McDonald was deep into talks with a prominent cyclocross professional team (with a virus-stricken star rider), but due to financial troubles the verbal agreement fell through at the last moment. While he was discouraged by the 11th hour hiccup, he has not let that dampen his ambitions to race a full cyclocross season, with the big boys in the U.S. and in Europe.

McDonald isn’t a stranger to success in Europe, as he took an impressive third place at the Roubaix World Cup last year, and is hosting a fundraiser event to attend the Koksijde World Cup and EuroCrossCamp.  Details below:

This Saturday the 21st of November Classic Cycle is hosting a benefit party to help raise money to send Zach McDonald to the Koksijde World Cup in Belgium and the EuroCrossCamp.

It’s going to be a good time for all – here’s what’s on tap for the day: Classic Cycle is donating 10% of all sales made that Saturday – a great excuse to get any equipment (or that shiny new bike) that you have been longing for. From 5:30pm to 7:30pm there will be beverages, appetizers, a raffle, some stories, pictures (all things cyclocross), and a silent auction. There will be some great stuff on hand! Hopefully everyone can stop by and at least catch up with others who share the same interest in cyclocross and cycling.

Classic Cycle is located on Bainbridge Island at 740 Winslow Way E a short ferry ride from Seattle. It is a short walk (3 minutes) from the ferry, so park on the Seattle side and walk or ride over – that way the ferry ride is free going back to Seattle!

Driving? Carpool to save money and the earth! As you get off the boat simply travel to the stoplight at the top of the hill and take a right at the police station. Classic Cycle is 200 feet from there on the left. Hope you all can make it!
