|Dave going after it. SQUIRREL!!!!|
|Jarod somewhere towards the front. Not enough O's in smoooooth...|
|Jarod not having enough O's. More of a smoth...|
|Thomas taking it very serious at first.|
|Adam with his game face on.|
Thomas had a very good first lap and a half (I'd estimate he was in the top teens somewhere.). Before I think fatigue and a week off the bike from a work injury. Started to catch up to him.
|There is no smiling in a race! Only pain and grimacing allowed...|
|Adam in the sea of people...|
Adam had a good race as well. Until... (Did you notice there always seems to be one of those in cross racing? Me too.) He snapped his derailleur hanger with one lap to go. But to his credit and determination he ran that bastard all the way in. In fact, because he was the last guy on the course. When he crossed the finish line with the bike on his shoulder he got a standing cheer from everyone around the start/finish line. It was pretty cool...
|I really do have freakish calf muscles. Look at those things!|
The only race left on this calendar year (Versus the Mayan one. They have an awesome series. The only problem is that they sacrifice the winner... Not much of a motivator to be anything other than pack fodder.) is the OBRA Cyclocross Championship down in Eugene this Saturday.
And with the weather being what it is. It looks like it's going to be a true hard man's race. Cold as shit and muddy as hell. Should be fun!
Only weird thing is that it appears that they are going to have the Master B's race with the Beginner's and the Clydesdale's. That will make for a (ahem..) interesting race. I'll be curious to see how they deal with the start. Or if it's going to be a mass free for all. There will be a lot of pissed off B's with all the lapped traffic. I guess we'll all see soon enough.
Thanks for reading.
