Josh at the race.

Here' s Josh. He raced hard this weekend. I think he pulled 40th?

Here's a picture of the race in general. If you look closely you can see me and my costume.

And last but not least, Here's Dale (looking sharp in his new jersey, Jim (a different Jim), and Kevin enjoying the post race festivities.

OK, the images seem to be coming up not where I thought they would, but I'm sure you can all figure it out.

DC CX wrap up and this week's practice.

Halloween is way too fun. No practice this week. Perhaps we can switch it to Thursday, maybe it will just get bagged.

DCCX was a lot of fun. Long hard course. 3 people racing in Proteus Jerseys: Josh, Dale, and Jim. also a lot of people from the Wed. night practices.

Why don't any of the races here look like this????

The Rain, The mud, the singlespeeds, the grit, the grime, the crud, the sludge

It looks like fun. Most of our races seem don't quite hit this level.

Last night we had our wed. night practice and they were the worst weather conditions I have ever ridden in (for cross, not counting long road rides where the sky happened to open up and dump on you). It was pretty fun.

4 people showed up.
josh, kevin, chris, jim

Hopefully the rain will keep pounding us until Sunday so DCCX will look like one of those races from the northwest.

cross practice report

I thought I was going to be k-solo for a while. I wanted to stay visible but start riding and I managed to find a separate little loop that is all on grass/dirt and is all within plain view of the comcast center. oddly enough, it is fairly technical, a tight turn around a tree, an off camber descent with some loose dirt, and some darkness. It's about .4 miles long.

kevin showed up and we monkeyed with his headset for a bit and then took off, in the end it was 3 laps of the regular loop with the mini loop added in (also made for 3 additional trips up the big hill).

Jersey Orders!

Round two of the jersey orders went out last week. Unfortunately it's a 6 week turnaround time. That means jerseys will be ready by late november in time for a few races.

we still have some size small and extra small at the shop so if that describes you, you can still pick one up.

I might be able to tack one or two more on, so if you want to pick one up, let me know ASAP.
