2014 Riverfront Crossfest

Cyclocross season is getting cranked up. Today was the Riverfront Crossfest at Riverside Park in Hartford, Connecticut. Team Horst Sports promoted this race many years ago when it was the Connecticut Riverfront Cyclocross. I think we last did it in 2009. I miss the race, but Dave Arnold and the Newington Bike crew worked with Ron Manizza to bring it back. Horst Engineering is a longtime supporter of Riverfront Recapture, the non-profit that is responsible for the boathouse and riverfront trails. They do a great job managing the park.

They had a different course than we had, but the park is still a great venue. Today, the weather was spectacular, with brilliant sunshine and cool temperatures. I was registered for the 40+ race, but with the recently fractured scapula, I was sidelined.

Still I went to watch, cheer, and take photos. I watched the 40+, 50+, 60+, and kids races. It was a glorious day. Yesterday was the Silk City Cyclocross in Manchester, so it was a great weekend to kickoff the Connecticut Series of Cyclocross. Ron puts on a good race. We supported him with Horst Spikes for prizes and will do so again at his next race, the Mansfield Hollow Cyclocross.

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 🚴🏽🍺
