Well, well, well. The Cyclocross series has begun in earnest now. This last weekend, the Seattle Cyclocross Series kicked off with the first race at Evergreen High School.
The sun was high, the course was FAST, and Recycled Cycles Racing flew the flag high with fast racing, solid results, and the loudest cheering section on the course (yes, this is an important thing).
It got so loud on our section of the course that the announcer dubbed our section the”Recycled Cycles Tunnel of Sound”. Yeah, ‘I’m kinda proud of that!
The day started out with a high point. Our friend Angela decided to don the Blue and Gold and try her hand at Cyclocross for the first time in years. She was nervous, but come game-time, she threw down HARD and came away with a WIN in her category!!! Nice job Angela!!!!
The day was early though, and we had several races to go. The Cat 4’s saw the return of the coveted “RCR White Jumpsuit Competition“. Basically, the highest placing Cat 4 is required to wear the amazing White Jumpsuit of ‘Cross. No fewer than 8 RCR riders stepped up in a massive field of over a hundred!!!
The end result was Randy snagging a 9th place in the 35+ Catagory, and Paul Priest taking the second highest placing of the day with a 7th place in the 45+!!!
The day wasn’t over yet. The big boys were still getting ready to go. We have 4 Category 2 riders on our team, so you know we were going to stick around!
I mean, look…
Sooooo dignified! 🙂
Man, what a great begining to the Series! Thanks to the promoters, and we will see you this weekend at CROSS-TOBER-FEST!!!!!!
