Peak Season # 1

To dream the impossible dream.......yeah, I know it's corny but this day was really unique as me, the hopeless cyclocross clutz had the perfect day and won the 45 B catagory race with team mate John Fritz coming in 9th. Better look now-it's not likely to ever happen again ! What will happen again is the team's dominance of the local scene, even in the last few weeks of the season. With much of the squad staying home on the cloudy,rainy day Scott and Alex still put on a clinic going 1&2 distancing themselves in the first lap from the field never to be caught. The field was led and energetically tortured by A.K. who almost got third, being narrowly outsprinted by former multiple national champ Don Myrah. Dean Poshard returned to racing after injury and held on for 13th place. Stella went for the single speed race and finished 7th, beating a few of the area's gearless greats. Courtney and Scott held up top ten finishes in the 35 B group going 4th and 8th ,with our mechanic on his day off racing for the first time in how many years ? Ryan finished his 4 laps in 24th. Brett Lambert overcame a slow start to make his way to the front in the 45 A group but was outpowered at the line by an on form Norm Kreiss. Frank Kalcic raced in a blinding fast 35 A group to finish 14th. All in all , it was a good day for the team and the first really rainy race of the season....at least for the A's and single speeds.
