HUP!

 

Posted by Picasa


We (me, the didlet, the wife, and the mom) managed to get over to Richmond Park last Sunday to see Mike, Ted, John J, and Danielle in the second-to-last KissCross cyclocross race of the year. I gather we didn't get the usual 'cross experience, as it was neither wet nor snowy, but between the wind, the hills, the barriers, the logs, the off-camber Corner of Doom, and the fairly crowded field were memorable enough! And I didn't even get over to the sand pit! More piccies are here.

Like I said, though, it was the second-to-last race of the season, so you've all got one more opportunity to watch 'em tear it up - December 8 in Holland, at Ridgepoint Church. First race (the "C" race) is at 11 am, the B race is at noon, and the A race is at 1 pm. Wear warm, grubby clothes, and bring your camera and your cowbell! Can we have a JDRF cheering section?

Awesome pics did! How fitting that I "took a knee" at the bottom tree as it truly was humbling. We need you ON THE BIKE at Ridge Point!

That's about 98% pics my wife took, so I'll pass on the props to her. She'd never used her camera in its "action" mode, and was a little surprised at how fast it fired off pictures - made for some great sequences, though!

Did, et. al.
Those pics make it actually look FUN! Made me ALMOST (Mike, I said ALMOST) try a cross race...
What? Who said that?

Certainly not me....

Best, y'all - you rock!
