Menno Cross Report
The Menno Cross course was dialed in better than ever with a lot of flowing grass sections, the flyover, barriers at the food tent and a perfect run-up at the bunker. The weather was beautiful but the dry heat put a boatload of hurt on the racers including Paul K who blew apart mid-race and looked like he might need CPR while he was being treated for heat exhaustion - I hope you're OK DB. James was passing racers every lap at the barriers with his dialed in dis/re-mounts, Cheryl had the race of her life finishing second in C, Joanne, Sandra and honorary goddess Anita were all hurting and racing well, Steven had a strong race as his bruise/goiter didn't appear to slow him down, Albert put all the youngin's to shame, Franklin's bike blew apart mid-race, Gavin continues to impress and move up the B-boys ladder (he seems to spend the entire race in his drop-bars - awesome), and I continue to tumble down the standings as quickly as I found myself strewn on the ground being driven over by living legend Bill Algeo. In the A race, the cricket chirped his way to the top of the podium defending his MC title from 2011.
