cx race in draper

it was warm and sunny today, nice shorts weather.

i didnt take any pics and heres a boring story.

we missed the C race due to me not getting up, paid some 5 spot lincolns to the B race and juniors, watched sherwinator crush the pro women and most the B class men. then watched reed hang with bart for half the race until his front tubular came off, that sucks.

alex g is on form in december with a 10 second gap to 2nd. the little paved climb brings out the fit guys and hurts the heavier ones.

no wonder mitch won the last race here, its probably a 3/4 mile paved uphill stretch thats just long enough to pop the weak links in your chase pack.

anyway then i rode home for about an hours worth of shammy time.
before that i took the road bike on this smooth buffed out course, its smoother than RMR and if any cx course is made for a roadie like turbo this is the one.

its so non technical and smooth i had to throw up.
RMR or hell of the north has more gravel and bumps than this course.

2 alex g
3 rico
4 alex r
5 jonny hintze took out atrain in the sprint for 5th.

robbie squire flatted while in 3rd, ali g spent the week in cali and had sea level syndrome. reed was on the best ride of the year and blew his tire off the rim.

atrain cant sprint cuz he starts out in the 12 cog and gets bogged down.

if alex g is this fast in december its going to be crazy in march. oh dang, i think hes sick of getting smoked in the march april races so hes copying barts yearly cross/ski plan.

wondering why crispy did 4 races and called it quits mid season, why bart, ali and kathy are not in portland racing cx big time, and why sager lives in ptown and doesnt race when hes the cross crusade champ?

maybe they are saving it for kansas city next weekend. sounds like a fun trip, but i went last year and it was the most boring 3 days of my life, other than watching 3 one hr races over 3 days.

i cant handle that kind of white line fever and down time.

this was a pretty boring week on the primetime blog, i have to come up with some new material. i lost interest lately.

were going to cabo next month, and madison. so the next 3 weeks until jan i dont see anything other than monotony abound.
we might go to deer valley if it snows, but i dont see that happening for awhile.
thx to theresa for some passes. i dont go to pc to ski unless i get hooked up like that. its better to go to 40 mins away at solitude.
but im not going to ski on ice and packed blow snow for $50 bucks a day.
week 3 of road riding is done, now tomorrow its supposed to be 50F and i will try the longest road ride since april of 3 hrs. since its going to snow here monday morning.
