XC in Pictures

Quickie today. A Clarkson Student, Ashley, was at the race on Saturday taking pictures. (She promised to not take any pictures of me with my wheels not pointed down.)

Coming back on the hiking trail. Getting ready for some more single track.

Yes, I really do smile (periodically) when I am racing…..

Some “tasty” single track (I never ate it during this race šŸ˜‰ )

These trails are really nice and flowy. Nothing really technical. Just a nice trail in the woods to get into the single track frame of mind. I am very very luck to have these behind my office. I can just throw on a jersey, grab my bike, and do an hour during the day when I have a chance.

Here is the start courtesy of Brendan (Clarkson Cycling Club President). He did a great job organizing this event.

Do you see the 44 year old lurking at the start? (What the heck am I doing racing these “kids” anyway????)

And the Picture of the Day

Thanks Ashley!
