Sunday I attended the Cross Winds Classic race that was sponsored by Central Arkansas Velo (CARVE), which was roughly 20 minutes east of Little Rock’s downtown area. Staging and parking was at the Stone Links subdivision club house parking lot, which was fairly packed out by the time the races were really rolling. The course was a 12.8 mile loop that was extremely flat and open, but the wind was relatively low that day so the ‘cross winds’ weren’t unbearable 😉 By means of the smooth talking of a friend, I was able to hop in the back bed of a wheel truck (better hold on!) and get some great shots of one of the earlier women’s race, as well as the standard fare sideline shots. Aside from a number of wrecks, the race was a huge success and I can’t wait for next year!
