Jackal and Adam....

Richard's pre-race prep....

The Kid....


It's been said before.... Those DICE people know how to put on a race. Wow! Great venue, well organized, fast! It was sweet!


Brother of Jackal started in the Beginner 4s and finished 10th of 14. Pretty good seein's how work has kept him off the bike for the last two weeks. Steady improvement, Buddy! Lookin' good!


Landon finished 2nd in a fairly large Masters 50+ field. The man is a machine!


Jackal and Adam Price fought from the start until the finish on the 3/4 combined race. It was some of the most exciting CX racing I've ever witnessed. They were seriously side by side the entire race. Wow!


Brian Eppen won the Open race with Andy Leuck from Rassy's and Steve Bullerman from Bike Tech finishing 3rd and 4th, respectively. Good job, guys! Great racing.


The course had some really fast sections and some gooey peanut butter sections. In my opinion it was the best course we'd been on this year. There was an extremely fast downhill section which was a transition from grass to asphalt to grass then to the difficult (ass kicking) run-up. Amazing! Plenty of suffering to go around, for sure.


Me? I finished in my traditional position. DFL. But I had fun. Beau Coup fun. It was good!


Thanks to the people from DICE who made it all happen. Y'all done good!


Ride safe.


Peace out, yo!

Blue - I think jackal's right leg is in two up lead group. It is so nice to see you out there throwing it down - having some fun.

Hey, If I was there we could have had a heated battle for DFL to match the one at the front.
My first CX race is Nov 1.

Good to see you again, nice pictures. Sorry I didn't talk to you when I came around. I was trying to keep my stomach on the other end of my mouth for most of the race.

Hey, at least your having fun!!
Congrats to the boys and their finishes too.
I almost entered this weeks local CX series race but we had things to do and Rene had been out of town all week, so . . .
Question: Can you race cross with a single speed mountain bike? I am thinking of doing the next race but don't know if they would allow me to use my 29er.
Looks like hella fun regardless!

cx is just too much fun!

typically they allow you to ride mountain bikes without barends in cx races. there are quite a few ss bikes out there, too. i wouldn't think it would be a problem. have fun with it!!!! :)
