Hi All,

Few pics below from the First round of the Welsh Cyclocross League in the UK.

Second season for me (ACME jersey) I've been dying to get stuck back in since the last race of '10!

Muddy Wheels at Dieppe, NB, Canada. It was my first race ever on a bicycle - finished first in "C" category (first timers Cat)

Gorgeous night - 22-23 degrees. Great mixture of slow, tight, technical terrain with some flat out gravel track. Nasty hill with a barrier that forced a foot climb - ouch.

DCCX-V. October 23 @ the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Northwest Washington, DC.
Three cheers for DCMTB for putting on a great event.This was my second race ever and first one this year.
Kudos to my girlfriend for taking pictures that don't show the complete and total pain & exhaustion that my lungs are going through.



And a picture of the tandem race in which I did not compete.

Agreed.

Unfortunately, there was a pretty poor costume turnout at the race I did. I was expecting to have a relatively lame costume, but like 90% of the people there raced in their usual kit.

Here's my weak effort:





I really should have raced on my Cross Check.


On the other hand, the course was excellent. Here are a few pics I took after I finished my race.

Yeah, memories of that run up have me choosing Apple Core Cross over Edgefield this Saturday. I need something flat.

A short steep run-up like you get at Barton is more fun -- steep enough that you definitely have to run it, but short enough that you dig in and sprint up the hill.

Here are some shots from a race a week ago, Syracross at Highland Forest just outside of Syracuse, NY. It was probably about 32* out and snow was still on the ground, not cold enough to freeze the mud though and there was plenty of it.

They had probably seen this and expected more than just a bumble bee.

It wouldn't surprise me at all. We just had a 12-year old get a mandatory upgrade from Beginner to C after his fourth podium finish.

The mixing of juniors and adults makes for some fun pictures. This is my personal favorite, from Alpenrose in 2009:
