Saltsburg Double-Cross

Mike, Maria, Sierra & Casey Maher organized an invitation-only CycloCross race party as a warm up for the weekend's "official" cross racing!

The Saltsburg Double Cross was a 2-race, back-to-back, one-in-the-light and one-in-the-dark...

In the end, the Overall Combined results were:
Brian Hopkins - 1st Place
Mark Briercheck - 2nd Place
Henry Dimmick - 3rd Place

...with Saltsburg Style podium girls!   ...squishy trophies...

...and strange spectators!

Mike skipped Race #1 to make sure things got going as planned...and then joined in on Race #2 and took the WIN.

Hannah Brewer was the only Brew-Crew member to sucessfully finish both races.

...and Steve (legs like locomotives) Brewer broke most everything in site ...including exploding his chain into 3 pieces in the first pedal stroke of Race #1...!!!
