It was an awesome Double loop that is for sure. Lots of fun. Sunday was also a great time at the Shedd Park Lowell MA cyclocross! George Bennington and I ripped open the Masters Field (which was pretty large this year). George had an excellent race with some great technical riding over some really nasty roots on the side of a hill. We rode together for several laps, which was really fun to ride with a Teammate! We ended up with a group of 5 including my other buddies John Plump. Chris Burke and Derek Griggs. We handed out blows to one another lap after lap until Chris got a little gap on the downhill and stayed clear and I ended up sprinting it out the John. George was chasing with Derek and was quick on our wheels. It was a fun race, though I did really feel the efforts of the SMR 2X in the start of the first lap (which was killer). It was excellent to pace with a few other riders and this was a really nice course with a little bit for everyone including a barrier/run-up and several other difficult rooty sections and a hard steep ride up. The other fun part of this course is the cinder track, which always leaves your face looking like a coal miner! George and I missed Bruce Shwab who was getting over being sick and Jeff Fisher who had some family obligations. We need our Masters Team ready for Sterling, MA Double Verge race next weekend!
Maine Cyclocross Camp 2012
