We’re up next with the WCC’s home race, KWCX at Bingemans. The course has changed a little bit, but not much. The first climb has been paved, well it’s tar and chip, we have a longer start/finish straight and a bit more space and straight stuff between the two climbs.
I asked to have sportif and single speed categories included for men and women. This will give people that aren’t too serious, or that want to have more fun at the end of the day, a place to race or just experience the event without too much pressure.
We arranged to have some food available from Bingemans between 12:30 and 2 pm. There will be hamburgers, sausage and chicken on a bun as well as pop/water. We’ll sell tickets for the food. Hopefully some people from the club that don’t race come out, enjoy the afternoon, get something to eat and cheer on the racers.
Speaking of cheering on the racers, I’d really love to see a bunch of spectators. At European races the start/finish is lined with people clapping and cheering. We can provide that kind of experience for the racers if we ask the other people we know in the club and even our friends to come out and take some of the racing in.

Registration CLOSES Oct 26 at 11:59. Don’t leave it to the last minute. Also, if you register for single speed and it’s your second race it’s only $10!!! Do it.
Volunteers. The sign up sheet is here, KWCX 2022 If anyone knows some students or young adults that could volunteer as course marshals it would be appreciated. We need 8 to be on the safe side. The spot for Registration Assistant is also open. We could use a few more people on race setup day, but we’ll be okay as a few racing friends are driving here for the weekend and will help.
Volunteers on Saturday and Sunday will be provided with food, drink and breaks. I’ll likely buy pizza on Saturday and source the volunteer food from what we have available from Bingemans on Sunday. If anyone has any food restrictions leave a comment on the signup form or message me.
Big thanks to everyone that has already signed up to volunteer and race. This is truly a great club run event, we couldn’t do it without all the support from our awesome club members.
