This was a big one, folks.  Cyclocross has been absent from downtown Toronto for the past few years but on Saturday, October 29, 2016, that all changed.   This race was the culmination of almost two years of work from a group of dedicated volunteers, a number of whom are LDCC members.  The course was twisty, technical and fun, and included the longest run-up of the season yet.  226 people and one inflatable dummy came out to Christie Pits Park to join in an all-day celebration of the return of cyclocross to downtown Toronto.  The LapDogs cyclocross race team were out in force, and a number of them found out that the only thing more fun that putting on a cyclocross race is participating in it!
