Continuing the trend of DRY cross races this season, the Amity (W.Va.) CycloCross race went off under sunny skies!
Story by Kirk Morrison
For November, the weather was amazing with sunshine and temperatures in the low 50’s.This was a fast, fairly dry course with a run-up (which could have used a rope ….. DX style !), some off-camber mud, and a steep downhill with a challenging off-camber right hand turn at the bottom.
The anticipated stream crossing (cold water!) was eliminated with the race-day construction of a make-shift running bridge.
Our group size was limited by the need for team members to set-up for tomorrow’s Murrysville CX (which Ag3r Promotes)...so "thank you to all the team members that actually “worked” this day instead of racing".
However, we were still able to make a good showing. Hannah had the top podium spot of the day. Nice job Hannah !
A summary of our finish spots are as follows.
Women – Cat4:
Hannah - 2nd Place
Rich - 4th Place
Kirk - 5th Place
Ray - 8th Place
Men – Cat3/4:
Steve - 14th Place (11th Cat3)
Men – SS Open:
Kirk - 10th Place
Another excellent race from JR and Gina at ABRA racing. Great fun !
