This weekend offers up two great days of racing with Breast Cancer Awareness Cyclocross Challenge in Hagerstown, Md., and the Winchester Apple Harvest Cross in Winchester, Va. Who will be in the leaders jerseys at the end of these races is anybody’s guess. Same goes for the team competition. Certain teams lost key members to bad luck, others such as Adventures for the Cure are waiting for their big guns to toe the line for the first time.

So what’s going to happen? Will the soaked courses favor one team over another? Will C3-Athletes Serving Athletes’ Bad Andy, Sam The Hammer and Mark Broadwater have enough fire power to fight off Haymarket’s Joey D, Jared and Gonzo? Or will 2009 series champ Wes Schempf’s absence on Saturday mean clear sailing for the Haymarket squad? Maybe, instead, it’s an opportunity for AFC strongman, Adam Driscoll, to test his surgically repaired knee against the region’s best riders. Will Driscoll’s presence, along with ever improving Pat Blair, be enough for AFC to contend for top honors with the major players in the region? And let’s not forget about the ALAN juggernaut of Wittwer and Weaver, who will be opening their MABRAcross accounts this weekend.

For the women, Jennifer Maxwell is picking up right where she left off in 2009 and it is not clear where the challenge will come from. With no Julie Kuliecza or Lenore Pipes pre-registered, Maxwell is left looking at new challengers to her title. Will Erin Silliman’s venture into cyclocross make it a battle of the women roadies? Or will some rising star show her mettle as the series progresses?

Verge Sport’s Michael Magur has returned north and will not be present at this round of the Master’s elite races to defend the jersey he helped create. Does this leave the door open for Kris Auer, Michael Birner or Yanni Papadopoulos to take Magur’s top spot? Who will wear it next? Only time, and an ability to ride in slop will tell.

Our goal is to have results up on by Wednesday each week. We know you will be checking many times before that, but just in case it slips your mind, check for updates. Also, don’t forget to visit us on Facebook and follow our Twitter feed.
