Cross Tastic Report

The best results from team ABES was Mia completing 3 laps of the kids race.  She beat my best efforts which had me 1/3 of a lap into the race when my derailer derailed my chances of finishing.  Seems I picked up something in the tall grass that sucked into my chain and caused my bike to blow apart.  That sucks.  It’s better than a broken nose (Gary), F’d up hand (Brad), kidney stone attack (Mike) or a broken hand (Cam at Southern Cross – who amazingly still won the B race).  So although I want to bitch, I’ll pass for now.  There are plenty of reports and pictures by those that got to race (bastards).  The next cross race is Halloween at the Harbour put on by the fine folks at Red River Racing.  It should be fun.  It will be painful but race day is a good day.


  1. That's a fantastic video; a great way to start the day. Now, just imagine doing that in your halloween costume and you'll be mentally set for Saturday.

  2. Too bad about the derailleur. Makes ss more tempting, doesn't it?

  3. For riding around town I love my fixed gear. I'm not that good or crazy to race SS. Some say All you need is one - for me it's more like - All I need is one more.
    Looking forward to RRR's halloween race. Hopefully there are no river crossings like in the video. That was nuts. JS
