Delaware Trail Spinners Fair Hill Classic XC

Sunday July 18, 2010

Race went good… again no flats witch is a key factor in having a satisfying racing experience.
There was a large field…maybe 40? It seemed like 40…. I had a slow start … i spent the race passing people … even though I wanted the race to be over by about mile 20 or so I did pass about 3 more people after that… so I suppose those extra 7 miles were good for me even if I wasn’t having fun anymore.

I came in 10th.

It was a cool course … lots of bend and short steep climbs.

Jeff Dickey, teammate came in 5th… even after stopping to fill a water bottle and making a wrong turn.

Rest of the team had solid results too…I believe we were all mechanical and injury free this weekend!!!

John Arias and Scott Wilson scored 1st and and 3rd in cat 1 race

Danzeisen and Quigley Summer Sizzler

Sun July 11 Danzeisen and Quigley Summer Sizzler Gloucester County College, NJ XC

Race had lots of bends... it was fast rolling with slick roots.

Race went well… I didn’t flat…. I came in 7th place witch is about par for what I expect from myself assuming that everything is working correctly. Aaron won the elite open!!! and Jay won the masters Category!!! but things didn’t go so smoothly for the rest of the team… crashes, broken seat posts, broken chains and possible broken hand.

Hopefully all injuries sustained will heal fast.

Bart the team director gave me a new nick name “stacks”… in reference to the height of the spacer on my steer tube… hopefully I don’t end up like the stacks form Goodfellas

Bart was kind enough to host a BBQ at his place after the race… it was a good time

I car pooled with Jeff Dicky… we saw some crazy people while driving home…
