Love Beer. Love Life
Love Beer. Love Life is our sponsor Harpoon's motto and we encourage all of you to do just that. This weekend is featuring a double VT double Zank SSCX weekend. Its a double we have been wanting to make happen for a long time. Paradise CX Frenzy and Putney are very close to each other. It makes it very easy to make a weekend out of it. The two races are both so much fun. Different styles of courses and both have awesome venues to both race, spectate and hangout. I mean how could it be better than Paradise? The Paradise course goes literally right by the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT. And Harpoon always welcomes us with open arms. This year, like past years each 21+ registered racer gets a token for a beer or rootbeer redeemable at the Riverbend Taps on Saturday. This year we will also be holding a costume race! It is Halloween after all! Best male and female costumed racer in the SSCX race will win one of our super limited edition Zank SSCX orange hoodies.
Putney the following day is a legendary race in the NECX. Pretty sure it is the longest continually run CX race in New England. The course is PURE VT. Held at West Hill and on a course that throws a lot of different features at you it is to me the defining course in the NECX. I love both courses. Paradise has a great grass course with lots of turns and a sneaky runup. And of course a run through the beer garden! Putney is all dirt, pump track, drop off, corn field and one of the nastiest runnups around.
We will have the new Zank SSCX series tshirts and hoodies as well as the final jars of Mad Alchemy NECX blend! We have nine left. Get them while they are hot! And they are hot. The aroma of maple goodness gives you watts. If you want a jar email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or come look for us in the HUP Death Star. We are in the sweet spot of CX season. The weather is getting cooler, leaves are at peak foliage and there may even be mud!!! Hopefully see a ton of you up in VT!
