"Chiropractic Weekend" races Aug 23 & 24 (WI)

Just a reminder that there IS racing in Wisconsin this coming weekend.

A Criterium in Brookfield on Saturday, Time Trial on Sunday in Dousman.

The following weekend is a cyclocross clinic in Madison, put on by Bike Planet and UCI Cyclocross star Johnathon Page.

Despite popular belief, there IS life north of the Cheddar Curtain.

Due to work, I didn't get there until mid-afternoon but did catch the Masters 1/2/3, Cat.3, and Pro 1/2/3.

Hung out with friends, new and old -




Cheered on Frunkin riding his first 3's race -




Cheered on Recursive testing out his new race bike -




Then enjoyed a very aggressive 2's race -




Will try to catch the time trial tomorrow, but looking bleak due to work. Will see.

Good times.


Recursive + Frunkin: will email your pix to 'ya. Frunkin - need your email.

i think that's just how he makes sure the bike can stand up to his style of racing...

congrats on the upgrade frunkin. how was racing with the 3s?

i raced the 4s in the morning - it was hot, wet, muggy and painful. i just about puked on the last lap, then i sat up for the finish when everyone else was taking off (still finished 8 or 9 out of 20 or so b/c i didn't get dropped like the other half that started).

Greg Cullen used to race 1's or 2's a few years back, he should definately be a 3 or higher.

The 3's were hard. It wasn't like the 4/5's where it would be kind of fast then slow then maybe an attack. People were attacking all the time. I think it was a little more physically demanding then 4/5's but the big difference is in the tactics.
BTW I had a (back of) pack finish for 13th/18

Modest Frunkin then did his 'cool down lap' and directly lined up with the 1's and 2's for the Pro 1/2/3 race.

WAY TO GO FRUNKIN !! He knows how to take a beating!



I just rolled in from 90 minutes on the MTB and gotta go right back out to shoot pix at the velodrome in Kenosha. It's Madison night for the main event!
