3) Pauwells
4) Meeusen
5) Aernouts

Marc's pics were:
Sven Nys
Neils Albert
Pauwels
Zdenek Stybar
Rob Peeters

Katie Compton
Daphny van den Brand
Marianne Vos
Sanne Cant
Lucie Chainel-Lefevre



Marc correctly picked three of the top five elite men including Pauwells 3rd place finish.  Most everyone was stymied by sty-bee's lack of performance today.  And Nys seemed as usual to give up once the podium seemed out of touch, finishing in a disappointing 7th.  However, even more impressive was Marc's pics for the elite women's race!


Congrats Marc, not get off the couch and start training!  Ithaca is less than seven and a half months away!!

Kuat Innovations and the NV

One thing that all 'cross races have in common is 'cross racing.

One thing that all 'cross races DON'T have in common is awesome sponsors like Kuat Racks.  Why is Kuat Racks an awesome sponsor?  Because YOU can win one of the most purpose-built hitch-mount bike racks ever built.
Why is the Kuat NV the best rack for cyclocross?  It's simple.  Unlike every other rack company, Kuat included a work stand into the NV.  So you want to work on your muddy 'cross bike between your pre-ride and the race?  No problem.  You don't want to scratch up your shiny new car (or old beater car) by leaning your bike against it after the race?  No problem.  Snap it into the integrated repair stand and do work, my friend.

As always, support the sponsors that support the Ithaca GP!

Win a free race entry!

So you want to race the Ithaca GP but don't want to wait until registration opens up to secure your spot on the start line?  Or maybe you're just too cheap to pay the race entry fee...  That's ok.  Either way, you're in luck.
How it works:
It's quite easy, actually.  The UCI Cyclocross World Championships are on Sunday, January 29 (incidentally the same day as the MMBA meeting in Lansing).  The Elite women and Elite men both race that day.  If you're lucky you will probably be able to find the race streamed live on cyclingfans.com.

SO, in order to win a free race entry to the fourth Ithaca Grand Prix of Cyclocross, you need to post your top FIVE places for both the Elite women AND the Elite Men's categories for the UCI Cyclocross World Championship race.

Write your choices in the "comments" section of this posting.  You will need to be a registered user and be willing to have your name announced as the winner.  Make sure to post your pics by MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY NIGHT, January 27.  Any pics received after midnight on Friday night will not count.

Fine print:
This will be good only for the 2012 race and is not transferable to anyone other than you, so if you can't make it tough luck.  I get to pick who is the winner based on the best choices overall, so don't complain.  Also it is good for only one race on the day, so if you want to be awesome and race in the B-Men, Masters 35+, and SS race, plan on paying the extra (small) fee for the 2nd and 3rd races.

Any questions?  Shoot me an e-mail racepromoter ATATATATATAT gmail.com

GOOD LUCK!

Veloshine

How exactly do YOU clean up after a 'cross race?  Use Veloshine wipes!


Veloshine wipes are 8" by 11" and are soft and strong.  They are hypoallergenic (not a degreaser) so they are perfect for cleaning your face and body off after a 'cross race before sitting in the car for the two hour ride home.  And on top of that, they are 100% biodegradable so don't feel guilty.

You can like them on Facebook HERE or follow them on Twitter HERE!

Remember, support the sponsors that support the Ithaca GP!
