2013 Silk City Cyclocross

My cyclocross season kicked off today at the Silk City Cyclocross, the first race in the Connecticut Series of Cyclocross. It isn’t easy to transition from 5-10 hour races to 45 minute races, but I’m going to try. It will take me a few more races to figure things out and develop the fitness required for such intense efforts. I have to work on my bike handling skills too, but I’ve been doing cross for 18 years. It will come back.

It was great to see so many friends at the race. Of all the cross races in New England, this is the closest cross race to my house, so I rode the eight miles to and from Manchester Community College, which is a fun venue. It was warm and dry, so the technical course was fast and dusty. Team Horst Engineering was well represented in both the Men’s 45+ and Men’s 35+ races. Matt Domnarski and Wade Summers had stellar results, taking first and second in the 45+.

A second year tradition, the noon-time kids race was a blast for the little ones and both of our children did the 10 minute race on a short course.

Race Results (will be posted when available)

Late night #carfreecommute via the #hopriverstateparktrail #railtrail #bicycle Fantastic and "educational" @hookerbeer tour with @ypoglobal friends. #hookerbeer #beer #ypo #manufacturing #craftbeer #madeinhartford #madeinconnecticut πŸΊπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Start of this morning's 33rd annual #soapstonemountaintrailrace. @trailrunningmom warned the 225 runners that there are rocks and roots on the course. She then offered the patented #shenipsitstriders start line money back guarantee. #trailrunning πŸƒπŸ»β›° #carfreecommute #burnsideavenue @horsteng #horstengineering #teamhorstsports #biketowork #biketoworkday #bicycle Broke out the #bridgestonemb1 and the #trailabike for a post-dinner Monday night #railtrail spin with the family. It's nice to have daylight at 8:00 P.M. #hopriverstateparktrail Little D at the #mothersdaydash 5K in Rockville. #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #running @trailrunningmom doing her #trailrunning thing. He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #Friday evening ride on the newly named #BreakawayBrewHaus Loop. Congrats to Our neighbor Matt on the launch of his new business. #tgif #happyhour #teamhorstsports #bolton #hopriverstateparktrail #beer #bicycle 🚴🏽🍺
