The last race of the day was the Mens 1/2/3. About 30 minutes before the race, Sam started working me to race along with him... so I could accumulate 3 total races on the day, a record! Being weak to peer pressure, I cracked open my wallet and shelled out a few more dollars to endure even more fun and pain! While I whittled away time near the back, Sam was near the front, spending the hour racing for 5th. But in his own 2nd race of the day, ultimately faded during his back-and-forth battle to take 6th in the Cat 1/2/3. By the end of the race, the sun was getting low in the sky, and we still had a 5+ hour drive home. All in all, a great course, and well worth the long drive to get there. And tomorrow?
The Murrysville CX. With a weather forecast of 35 degF and rain. YUK!
So far, Ag3r - ButlerHealthSystem has 5 riders signed up, racing in 3 different races. Additionally, Agr International is one of the sponsors... and ... as Agr's representative(!), I am enslaved to help with course set-up the day before, and the morning of, the race :) So if you are looking for something COOL and DIFFERENT to do over the Holiday weekend, THIS is it!
There is a (Nov 12) posting about the course to be found via our BLOG PEEPS links under "Team Freddie Fu". Check it out! If any of you are interested to attend, or help, leave me a comment to this posting.
Ride moto to work... with even bigger wet snow flakes sticking to my helmet shield, and now also the grass.
Hey everyone... Winter is coming!
Sam Morrison, Doug Frost, Henry Dimmick and Ray Sielski all came out to hammer their bodies and bikes over the rock gardens of Moraine... and to be there for the party if Sam was able to defend his Points Lead in the MOM Series.
On this day, we had every class covered...well ALMOST every class. We left our skirts at home, ON the riders we left at home...!!! After ~90 minutes of dust had settled...and blood had dried(!)... Sam finished the race as the 4th Expert, I finished 9th Sport, Frosty finished 6th Veteran's 35+ and Ray finished 12th Master's 45+. So Sam was able to clinch the Expert Class Series Win as the second youngest rider to ever accomplish such a feat in the 2o years of this series. A totally AWESOME effort :) Watch Sam's Blog for more on his race. ------------------ In the Weird Injury department, I received the following from another rider. We were both crossing over a rock pile with a sharp drop on the far side... and just as I was dropping my front wheel off the ledge, to my left, I saw the other rider's head going straight for the ground as he went over the bars.
In that same instant, I felt something hit my left elbow... which turned out to be his rear wheel coming over top both of us... causing my injury, but not causing me to go down.
Talk about being "derailled" :)
