The biggest weekend in Alberta Cyclocross will return for it's third great year this October 2nd and 3rd. The Dark Knight and The Oval 'Cross are back. Rumour has it that it is ... bigger, better, and well ... new.

The courses move to C.O.P. I am sure the atmosphere and lunacy will be the same as in the past. If you have not experienced watching cyclo cross ... well this is the weekend to get on that. I have raced both the Dark Knight and the Oval Cross since they have begun. The Dark Knight is fun, crazy and blasting with music to make you want to shake your bootie whilst on a bike.

There is going to be a downhill pump track (frankly I do not know what that is) but it sounds fun as it promises air!
