2013 New England Regional Cyclocross Championships

Yesterday’s New England Regional Cyclocross Championship was a chilly affair. The event was at Coolidge Park in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. The 35+ race wasn’t until 2:50 P.M., so the sun was getting really low in the sky when we started, and it was practically gone when we finished. The temperature was down in the low-30’s Fahrenheit and my feet were very cold.

I drove up with teammate, Arthur Roti. Art had an awesome race and just missed cracking the top-15. He couldn’t close a gap on the last lap after a bobble in the sand pit. I didn’t have a very good race and came home in 23rd. These “masters” races are getting harder. The battle for the win came down to two former national champions.

Mark McCormack got the win. He is a multi-time U.S. champion. Todd Bowden was second. He is a former Canadian national champion. I take consolation in that I was only 3:51 back. Oh well. Not bad. My last ride was at last Sunday’s cross race. If I’m going to get faster at cross, I’m going to have to make the time to train a bit more.

Regardless, I’m having a blast with this. My Seven Mudhoney was again a beast of a machine. I love this bike. I rode most of the race in the big ring and chose to run the two uphill sections. There was no point in risking a fall when you are battling for 23rd place. Art and I did battle with the usual suspects. I was closing in on Keith Burgoyne on the last lap, but he held me off.

Next up is the double at next weekend’s Verge Series race in Sterling, MA. If it’s cold like yesterday (and today), then I’m wearing my knee warmers!

I finally caught up with my likeness at the @hmf_events Niantic Bay #Triathlon today. I heard about the #hartfordmarathon trailers (there are two) but hadn't seen my mug shot(s). It was a fantastic race on one of my favorite courses. #teamhorstsports @seven_cycles #sevencycles @runhmf This Valve Cap has always been one of my favorites. We are making it complete from 6061-T6 aluminum bar on our twin-turret/twin-spindle Eurotech multi-axis lathe. After Deburring and cleaning, it gets anodized (subcontracted to a key supplier) and then a steel helical insert is installed. #Aerospace #cnc #cncmachining #instamachinist #precisionmachining #machining #manufacturing #madeinnewengland #madeintheusa #Swissscrewmachining these Center Tubes complete from C1018 steel bar on a  Citizen L32. #cnc #cncmachining #precisionmachining @horsteng #horstengineering #instamachinist #madeinnewengland #madeintheusa Today is our #CareerFair and recruiting Open House @horsteng We are also working hard to introduce the next generation of workers to our industry. Hiring #precisionmachining skills for #turning #milling and #Swissscrewmachining Hoping for a big turnout. Growth is good. #precisionmachining #cnc #cncmachining #Aerospace #manufacturing #horstengineering #madeinnewengland #madeintheusa Rotary broaching the small internal hex in this special screw.

Definitely not a vegan trophy...but a nice hard earned handmade memento. @trailrunningmom was 5th in the Vertical Mile, 20th in the #Speedgoat50K and 1st in the Quadbanger. Better than @letourdefrance (which also ended today) she was first female in the final general classification (only woman to do all three). She saved her two hard falls until the last "stage." This woman is all blood and guts and the toughest chick I know! Our kids will get a kick out of the #Speedgoat trophy. #pursuitstrong @pursuitathlete @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #ultraspire #teamhorstsports #teamlivingston Just before the start of #speedgoat50k #Quadbanger @snowbird @mikewardian doing the only thing he does nearly as much as running! Posting on #instagram #twitter and #facebook #speedgoat50k It's been fun hanging with all these crazy runners.
