2013 Veteran’s Memorial Cyclocross p/b ERRACE.org

Today I got to do a “hometown” race, the inaugural Veteran’s Memorial Cyclocross p/b ERRACE.org. 2/3rds of the way through Debbie’s triathlon at Star Hill, I dropped the kids off at the day care and made my way to Colt Park in Hartford. Colt is one of the city’s classic green spaces and it was cool to race CX there. ERRACE is doing some really good stuff with their fight against cancer.

The course was more challenging than any of us expected. There is a bit of elevation to Colt Park and the ERRACE organizers made good use of it, winding us multiple times up and down the grassy grade. The course was mostly dry with only a few slick spots from the rain that fell earlier this week.

We made use of the stairs by the Samuel Colt memorial statue. We had one set of barriers. We had a lot of tight turns to go with those short but punch ups and downs. I had my usual battle with Art Roti until he put 30 seconds on me. I couldn’t close the gap and ended up battling with a Biker’s Edge rider the rest of the way.Β Team Horst Engineering had a strong showing with Andris Skulte, Randall Dutton, Wade Summers, Paul Nyberg, Mike Wonderly, Art and me all in our respective age group races.

Saturday races are never the best for me, so I’m looking forward to the trip to Putney, Vermont tomorrow for the West Hill Shop Cyclocross, which is one of my favorites.

Race Results (will be posted when available)

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
