Skis and CX bike are packed...

Off for round #2 of our double header weekend.

Today, we pick up a bunch of Zamboni shavings from the ice rink and make a snow portion for today's course.

Yesterday, I managed to finish well into the lead lap. First time I've done that.

First tracks!




Girls on bikes on ice:






Had a few mechanicals today, so didn't do as well as I had hoped. Recovered well from them though. Still made the lead lap no problem.

I should point out that I was fighting pretty hard, first place in class was a free tattoo of a guy jumping a barrier carrying a bike. I'm normally not a fan of the concept, but winning one in a bike race? How punk rock can you get?

Well that's what you get for not using smugmug.

I think I owe my gallery server admin a beer or something. I'm sure it'll be back soon.

Hey Askel,

Is this a picture of you or another rider? If it's another ride, would he be from Alabama?


Hey rthuey
Snow.. Cyclecross is mainly a European winter downtime sport to stay in shape for the roadie set...

Scared me for a second, cause I thought my brother who lives over in 'Bama, I thought he jumped into cyclecross already. he's been talking about it but has his money wrapped up in his mountain bikes. Not that I would be affraid of him getting into cyclecross, but I know he just got his new house and should be silly-busy working on that...

OK, sorry I do not have a digital image of him... but I know how my brother looks!!!

Mountain bikes work too.





The best part of "bee" class CX- kicking back with a beer while the "eh" guys go at it.

You're lookin GOOD!
