Last Sunday Team Metropolis attended (and some of us actually participated in) the second Alley 'Cross race of the fall 2013 season at Overlook Park in North Portland. What's this Alley 'Cross thing you ask? Well, it's sort of a hybrid of a standard alley cat race and a regular cyclocross race. It starts with the entire field (there is only one category) putting their bikes in a designated start location, then convening a short distance away to receive instructions.
|The course awaits.|
|The racers receive their instructions.|
|And they're off!|
|Ho ho ho indeed.|
