My family came out to Spooky Cross on Saturday night, so I had my own photographer, here's a few of them.

Spooky Cross this past weekend. Beer handups.

That would be a beer handup that just left the frame to the right...

If that's your "o" face then I think you might be doing it wrong.

More pics from Bubba 'Cross #3

Our local series really doesn't like barriers. We usually only get one section with two barriers (if we're lucky). This particular race we got one lousy barrier.


Yes, I brought a bottle. I needed it. And dude behind me must be putting on a show for the camera because I whizzed by him just a few seconds before this was snapped...

"Hnnngh!"

Edit: I was going to post an equally embarrasing race photo of me but I race at 10am and no one ever bothers shooting those races.

And yes, that's Tim Johnson cutting a hard left as he was off on a break-away to buzz my camera and scare the piss out of me. Much yelling and laugher ensued. He's good people.
