Here are a few from today in Midland. Overall a great day to ride bikes around a park. Course ended up being quite a bit faster than we had intended but was overall a lot of fun. Emphasis was placed at bike handling skills at speed. Congrats to Tom Burke and Anne Grofvert for wins in the A-race today!
Kristie managed to get some awesome photos today...
|Start of the elite race|
|The beach section was pretty compact and proved to be tough on the legs all day|
|Burke entering the sand|
|Simon and I rode around all day together|
|Last 400 m of the final lap...Simon left a small gap to his left which I took|
|The left turn immediately after this was fast|
|Team Drake / Argyle Army took top honors in the team race. Andy Klumb, Anne Grofvert, and Andy Brown tore apart laps 2, 3, and 1, respectively.|
|The Heed and BARTS were the spoils from the team effort, and thanks to the BICYCLE HQ for a gift certificate that netted (with a bit extra) the Gore WS gloves. Since the shop owner, John, was at the race he offered to head over to open the shop on a Sunday so I could go pick something out!|
