The mud and the blood and the beer
Wait long enough and ye will have mud. Sure, it took the whole season but a nice Portland style rainy day made for a nice wet exit of what has been a very successful season for HRS/ Rock Lobster. Stella scored her 5th win of the season and won the overall in the Peak Season series. Dean Poshard continued his improvement with a second on the day and second overall in the series. We were treated to a few seldom seen team members making their presence known, namely Rob Evans and Julie Brothers. Julie wound up third in the womens masters overall. Max Fraser, our only junior who haden't been able to race all season showed up and won his race....now he gets the distinction of being this seasons only undefeated team member. Tim Watson's consistant performance earned hem the overll win in the highly competetive 35 plus A division. Tom Sullivan showed up and secured his 7th overall in the mens 45 plus A division. Aaron Kereluk although not present wound up third overall in the mens elite inspite of mechanicals and illness for much of the series. Dodgeball was on a tear leading out the elite race until a rolled tire sent him to the pits. Frank Kalcic showed some fearless bombong of the muddy off-camber section where many of the racers elected to dismount and run. Yours truly missed a third spot overall in the mens 45 B division by a paltry two points..........whatcha gonna do? David Wyandt dominantly lead the series until injury forced an early end to his season. Nick Purtscher also had to hang up the 'cross bike with health issues. One thing about this tam, though- when one person has to hang up the bike there seems to be others capeable of standing up. We have that good of a team.
