Spring Mount (PA)...the longest, most painful and enjoyable 40+ minutes i've had in a long time...the Yuengling Black and Tan i had after the race was better than usual

i mean, look at that bike...all-chinese 1990 steel schwinn with neither clip or clipless pedals! chain came off once...lost nearly a minute with that.

looking forward to the next race...and working on my leg power...i got blown out of the water but i did finish ahead of a handful of folks

yeah, it was more of a mess than i imagined...it would've been really a mess had it been raining...the sand and straw really gummed things up.

i remember at lap 4 the announcer saying (as i passed) what a 'beautiful' bike...and "ride what you brung" haha...i did. i had the stamina, but not the strength to drag this 30+ pound dinosaur around.

we're looking into the malvern race at phelps (i think)...late november?

I want to see that blue steel bike with the road brake, that's what I'll be doing if I can fit some knobbies on one of my rides.
The more I think of spending new money on a frame to build the more I'd rather look for an oldie.

Cool video, I'll have to start riding with the purpose of getting in shape to actually do this myself. Keep 'em coming!

Black and white pics really bring out the grit of CX! Beautiful!

I just got back from seeing my first race and my CX bike comes Monday so hope to be in it next season.
Here are pics of the race and a few funny things I saw, like Santa bunny-hopping the barriers!
Video to come soon hopefully.

"Found a dollar"

"Found a beer"

"Found Santa"

"Found Santa and a Beer"

And yes, that was in the middle of the Elite race.
