Connecticut Series of Cyclocross

The five race Connecticut Series of Cyclocross wrapped up this weekend with two fun races. Yesterday’s Cheshire CX and today’s Hop Brook Cyclocross had very different courses. Interestingly, I ended up with the same result (9th in the 35+ race both days) but felt a lot better today on the fast and wide open course.

Yesterday’s more technical and hilly track was not good for me on an “out of synch” Saturday morning. After yesterday’s race, where I felt empty after a long work week, I rode stronger today and had a fun battle with Ted Haack, who got a gap with two to go. I didn’t give him 8th spot without working for it. I closed in on the last lap (but burned my matches doing so) and he pulled away again.Β It was brisk both days with morning temps in the 30’s (Fahrenheit). The double was a lot of fun. Yesterday’s Cheshire race and today’s Middlebury race are less than 15 minutes from Prospect, where Debbie’s parents live, so Β it was an easy commute both days.

Our kids got to race yesterday and it was a nice two loop course for them. I love watching little one’s tackle cross courses. They warmed up for the CX race with the Little Manchester Road Race earlier in the day, which was a very crowded affair (from what I heard). Debbie took them to Manchester first before meeting me at the cross race.

We enjoyed our picnic lunch on both days and had fun watching the other races while hanging with friends. The sunshine shone brilliantly. Cheshire Park was a challenging venue, as was Hop Brook Lake.

The star of the weekend was our 45+ teammate, Pat Cunningham. He dominated Cheshire for the win, and rode tactically smart Hop Brook on his way to 2nd place, which netted him the overall series title. Congratulations to Pat! Wade Summers, Art Roti, and I flew the Team Horst Engineering flag in the 35+ races.
