Waffles! Nutella!

DeKalb Race Flyer
Check out the original flyer here.

This Sunday is race number two of the Chicago Cyclocross Cup series. Held in Hopkins Park out in DeKalb, the course promises to be a real kicker with technical switchbacks, off-camber corners, and lots of run-ups. If that's not enough, a bake sale and waffles served Belgian style will keep the carb levels high, both pre- and post-race.

I must disclose that the above race is organized in part by my team, the Half Acre Cycling squad. Journalistic ethics and protocols aside, if you make it out, stop by and say hi and buy a waffle. Or three!
