    superior cross photos

    so i know a lot of folks went up to granogue this weekend, but team bike rack rolled deep in manassas on a really challenging course.

    warm up lap


    seth letting out a primal grunt


    ryan and i charging the woodchip pile




    portage


    heather tearing it up in the women's b


    in my pain cave. it looks like i'm smiling but all i remember about that point in the race is tunnel vision and trying to keep the ole airway open.


    in her first race, heather won team bike rack its first podium spot. way to go!

    That was a great course. Alot of lung burning on the backside climbs then no recovery before you hit the barriers and "mulch". Those dang "acorns" or whatever they were got me twice around the turns under the trees.
    I can't imagine how you guys did it on a SS. I pushed all of my 38x27 on those back side hills.
    I did the masters (~:40) and C races but ran out of gas towards the end of the C race to try to bridge any gaps and move up. I remember passing Seth (Florida jersey) early in the race on his SS on one of the climbs and looked down to see he was only spinning one gear and gave him nice compliment for doing this on a SS.

    one other fun fact: the race was called "superior cross" because its main sponsor was the superior paving company.

    didn't pay too much attention in english class, but i believe that's what we call "irony."

    NICE!!! Way to go Heather, first podium for Team Bike Rack. Great pix, and great racing for Team Bike Rack. Look for more great racing from these guys at DCCX.

    It's raining today finally in VA. The worst part about the cross races so far was the dust!
