CVC, a classic it was

Great race weekend, with somethin' for everyone. Each day a different guy laided the smack down, but Olaf sure took it to the streets on Sunday to deserve that win!!! Mick and Hutch put up a good fight, but the Safestrap boys had control. and like Towle said, one of the finest comebacks of all time! Once again TT'in is golden on the short walks home where there is no hidin' from the wind. It's late,.. gotta' go......

RR. this was a great par course, the real reason for showing, but I will have to say the crit was the most fun I have had in a while and that is kinda' scary. it had a beautiful stair step climb on winding narrow country roads. it did not seem that hard, but it was, cause the 2nd time up a couple of accellerations blew the group to bits. the usuals went up the road,.. Olaf, Martini, hutch, worthington... and us strangelers scratched our way back, but by then the real had gone down, the fastest gun in the west, quick draw Olaf, ripped up the road with the pocket rocket Worthington. and we thought our little group was saved with a quick catch after some yelling to organize the group (an organized chase is a rare bird here abouts').... the road had some great descents and only a bit of cross wind, so it was easy to do little while 'monster Mick, 'rockin Rob and 'hardman Hutch did the brunt of the chasing. the gap did not close till the last 5k, when we took it down from 1;35 to under :30. but 'quick draw took the booty. the 14 chasers grunted to the line as the Safestraps freshened up the sprint. .....more to come

TT, oh no, 8 miles straight and flat, then a couple of speed bumps and 8 more miles of a few raises and a couple of curves. The run along the river for a few was refreshing. I sure hope someone thinks this is cool, now I know why I love cross, it is always exciting. Ok, so not all of us can crank these things, but the 'monster did' in blazing style with the 'hardman' close behind. Looks like this really got quick draw steaming, as he "called them out" for Sundays crit.
