Snow-racin' at 'cross #11

For Drew's second cyclocross race at Fort Buenaventura in Ogden, there was FRESH SNOW.

Carl was fine with that, but Scott wanted to cry.  Just kidding.

Jim, Drew, and my co-worker Rich (in red) were ready to go.

And they're off!

Carl takes a corner.

Jim coming in on his first lap.

The course was very slippery at this location (video above).  Luckily, none of my boys hurt themselves too badly in crashes.

Drew in the snow.

The snow was coming down pretty hard at times. (Click on any picture to see a larger version.)



Part of 'cross racing is jumping barriers.  Check out Jim's smooth moves and the not so smooth action on the guy behind him in below.

After the men's race, it was the ladies' turn.

Gigi took 2nd. Yay, Gigi.

Melissa has worked very hard with the race organizers putting on these races.

Theresa wears snow pants when racing.

Nancy was inspired by the snow.

Kathy is just wicked fast.

Erika is a faster than a rabbit.

Jen looks damn good.

Jenny is hard core.

And, me? I'm not foolish enough to race my bike in the cold and snow. No, my job this day was to fry up some hot greasy burgers as post-race fuel.   Insulated Carhartts are much, much warmer than cycling tights.
