LARPD Opens Cross Season This Weekend In Livermore!

Karen & Shane Huntoon will kick start the 2009 Cyclocross season for Northern California this Saturday in Livermore with their excellent LARPD Series opener. Both Karen & Shane have had successful bicycle racing careers and they use this experience to put forth fun and well run races for all ages and skill levels. It is on for Cross racing this weekend, the season starts now! For the first few races of the LARPD Series the courses feature some cool grass sections of riding. There will also be many twists and turns to tantalize and test all riders while preparing everyone for the challenges that racing Cross delivers. Amazingly the temperature forecast looks not overly hot & brutal as it can be scorching in the East Bay this time of year. It should be a very pleasant day for racing this Sat., Sept 5, Nor-Cal's first Cross event LARPD #1...

I highly recommend having a go at some Livermore races. The action is fast and the riding is straight up fun. There is no better way to start the season then jumping right on some of the sweet courses Shane puts together. Will Huntoon use his famous "six-pack" board set up??, I doubt it for the Series opener. One thing you can count on is a good time!

Thanks to Karen & Shane for all their cooperation with overall scheduling of the Nor-Cal races, and for having a great LARPD Series for those who want to race and have good times on the Cross bike!

Yeeha! I'm all over that action! Shane really is a great guy, and I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting Karen. I'm so stoked for the season to finally be here! Looking forward to seeing a bunch of NorCal crossers this Saturday!
