MennoCross Photos

Cheryl and I took some photos of ABES and friends in the C, B and kids races at the cyclocrossiest race MennoCross has ever had.

ThNR Report

Ben, Albert, Gavin, Steve, Dan, Kris, DB, Franklin, Jeff, Tom, Shaun and I took to the dark streets and SX course.  David and Steven joined us at the clubhouse where minutes include: Stevens report on the sweet Burwaldy woods single-track, a lack of wings on wing night (two weeks in a row = boo) had us riding to McD’s for a mid-meeting greasing, Dan has double B O, Paul is cyclo-lusting, Franklin intends on making SX13 a gong show, Jews Harp V Mouth Organ, a Tom Waits album played on the juke box – a pleasant change, Dan promised an upcoming Thursday Night French Fry Ride, prince Albert (the man, the myth, the piercing), and sausage-bicycle awards.  Good times.  JS

ThNR – CX Edition

This week we’ll gather at ABES headquarters at 7:00 so we can ride the SX13 course before the sun sets. 

It seems that the first laps of a new cross course suck arse, but the more you ride it, the more fun it gets as you slowly begin to understand the lines, when to shift and where to stay off the brakes.  We best git learnin.  See you at 7:00.  JS

ThNR Report

Shaun, Gavin, Steven, Chaz, James and I met to sample the SX13 course at the park.  Steven had mowed through the tall grass and we could finally see what the terrain had to offer.  We found a couple of holes and tree stumps but nothing the good people from the town can’t fix.  The course flows well and the mowed sections on the hill look cool.  It’s going to be sweet (painful).  We were joined by Albert, Dan, Franklin, and DB.  We spied Tom and Duke cycling about but they don’t play well with others and tend to avoid the peloton.  We all convened at the clubhouse where the minutes include: watching Teemu V the Jets, Gavin Whoreschou, stop the spread of ABES, DX13 awesomeness was the awesomest, passing like a boss, everybody wants to be Mr. Black, Shaun has lost 45 lbs by riding bike and hating life, pantyhose bibs, Leo “Dutch boy” Dyck likes to plug holes, Steve Perry, Buffalow wings, Peter Sagan knows how to load his bike, Franklin finds Mark Cavendish and Zach Bogosian dreeeamyyy, my clumsy attempt as a percussionist - I could be 2nd triangle material if i practiced, DB and Franklin have started Cross Club at high school (right on), new jersey design, DSwank bought a round with his VLT winnings and Franklin took his winnings and ran away.  Good times.  JS
Winner winner chicken dinner - see you suckers later!
Shaun doesn't need these anymore
