The smackdowns are upon us all.
And yes, contrary to popular belief, no sea monsters.
Big props to people that are hooking us up with cool stuff to give to racers.
First off, Alex Evenings, for sponsoring the pro ladies with some free evening wear. Their stuff is hot, you can get all mucky at the race, clean up and look all gorgeous in time for dinner.
Second, http://www.procyclocross.com/ for once again throwing us everyones favourite foreign language cyclocross videos for wicked primes. Holla! If you have never checked out the site, go for it. Super races you can't get in this country, reasonable prices, and a super nice attitude. Great for winter roller sessions.
Third, our good friends at Wildthyme Restaurant and Bar, for allowing the smelly hordes of racers in after saturdays event for a great Prix Fixe dinner. (Rated excellent by the NYtimes, super food, and yes some vegan stuff.)
http://www.sysinc.org/ for loaning us the venue indoors, and the greatest changing rooms cyclocross has ever seen. Be sure to hit the ultra hot showers post race before dinner!
Anyone that has helped hold a rake, mower, banner, police barricade, stake, plank, rebar, hammer or picked up someone from the airport to help us pull this off. Word Way Up.
Bentley, Atlantic, and Capri
Jos and the guys from Fiordi Fruitta stayed out here one year, said it was nice. Islip MacArthur airport is in town, so there are a tonne of hotels. A La Quinta, and a big Holliday Inn come to mind, but I can't find them online. They do exist, I swear
