Wildness at the flyover. I had to edit out the bad crash… a bit too wild to post on this blog. Glad everyone was alright from the sounds of it.

Usually we all make the traffic ridden drive Friday night after work to Baltimore for Charm City Cross but this year we opted to wake up at 6am in order to get there before the 8:30am race for Lauren.  6am – 3:15pm is a long day before your race starts.  Im always pretty bad at remembering to eat and drink throughout the day while getting my cheer/heckle on. We got everything setup then lurked around a bit.  We got into a conversation with some parents of the newly developed children’s cyclocross team that had 20+ riders in the new 8:30am juniors field.  It was seriously awesome to see how many kids were racing for the first year and having a blast.

2015 Cooper River Cross – CRCX

13 Oct

We woke up around 6:30am, packed the car and got over to help Jeff getting things ready for race day.  They had trudged around in the wild rain the day before and got the majority of the course done with little to clean up tape wise that morning.

For the amount of wild rain we had just gotten I was seriously amazed how dry the course was.  there was one section that eventually got turned up and slightly ‘sloggy’ but there was almost no mud at all.  It was crazy.

I helped with starts/heckled everyone which is one of my specialties.

start of the Cat4 mens race:

I ended up racing later in the day but by the second lap my back hated me and the pressure I had set and we soft pedaled in and out of the saddle for the next +40mins. Ooof! I had a blast at the race but could have done without the racing part. I was so out of it for no reason before the race. I pinned Blakes number upside down and I forgot to take my warm-up pants off before I started racing… All in all a solid day with a solid crew!

I need to upload the GoPro video still!

UCI Road Worlds – Richmond, VA

13 Oct

Since The Pope was comign to Philly and all of us who lived int he city wanted to get out!!! we crammed into the car and drove down to Richmond, VA after work Friday night.

Dinner in Fredericksburg at Sammy T’s on the way down was pretty great!

we had to pick up some booze for the Arrow Racing crew… not sure why they wanted the college dranks but they were supplying the beer

We got in that night and checked out our AirBnB south of the city.  Weird little neighborhood that looked like it was up and coming.  It was rainy and cold but we still managed to muster up some will power and met everyone from philly at the bar(s).  Some of us went a little too hard that night and we went to bed sometime after 4.

The next morning most of us woke up.  We opted out of the ride and hit Harrison St Cafe for some eats.  Then we went to watch the womens road race.
