Kisscross #5: Richmond Hills Park

Posted on November 2, 2008 at 12:55pm 0 Comments

Got there really early today 'cause I wasn't sure which class I was going to race. My leg was still really sore from some muscle spasm issues Friday night but when it came down to it, I just couldn't move down a class. Fitness wise I am still a bit out of my league in the B class. As far as handling my bike, dismounts, getting back on the bike I feel great, just don't have the endurance to hang with the mid and top riders in the B's.



I like to watch the C race when I get there early.… Continue

Two weeks between races is toooo long and cold weather sucks!

Argh, it's Thursday which means it is almost the weekend, which means it is almost RACE DAY! I still kinda find it funny that I am slow and my goal is not to be DFL in the B race yet I can't wait for each race to get here. I wish there were more opportunities to race from week to week. The rapid decent into winter like weather is probably not helping. It takes a lot more motivation to get out and ride (let alone get up at 5AM and commute 12 miles in the dark while it is 28… Continue

Kisscross #4: Cannonsburg Ski Area

Posted on October 20, 2008 at 4:54am 0 Comments

Had another fun race. It was nice to get out on the new bike and put it through its paces. I might be sold on gears (at least for some of the time:) The Kona Jake is a great bike, super comfortable, stable, can't say enough. There were 38 racers in the B's and I was in the middle of the pack going into the first barrier section. I have been pretty smooth on and off the bike this season...until that first section yesterday! Stacked it into the barrier. Looked like a DOUCHE lol. By the time I got… Continue

New Steed....

My trusty old Specialized finally crapped out on me. Cracked the frame. With a race coming up this weekend and having missed commuting ALL WEEK I needed something... and fast! Called all the local shops, checked out all the sites, even went to fleaBay! Nothing. Cross Checks all sold out till Jan. and kinda pricey (for what I want). Everything was either too much $$$ or not in stock. I happened to check my local mountain bike assoc. website's classifieds and found an 08 Kona Jake with less than… Continue

Second race....

Had my 2nd CX race this weekend and it was great. I moved up to the B's to get more race for the money and met my goal of not finishing DFL (by one place). I think I would have been top 1/3 in the C race. The course was a lot of fun, but still brutal...especially with a LOOOOONG run-up that wasn't fun to get going on the singlespeed. Next race in a couple weeks on the 19th at Cannonsburg Ski Area. Maybe I will see ya there!



Hup Hup,



Jon



BTW, I added a bunch of… Continue

Unfortunately I've been stuck in Detroit for too long now. Abbey and I had an adventure race this past weekend and I seem to have messed up my foot pretty good.
