But add a cyclocross bike to that inch of snow? Jackpot. Calvin & Hobbes just needed a ‘cross bike.
Woke up to about 5 cm of wet, heavy snow. Evan was pumped.
In the first race, Naomi and Thomas took on the snow and wet with abandon.
They were probably running from this guy… whom Evan dubbed “the Green Monster”.
A little bit of drama early in the first race saw a local stalwart go down hard on an off-camber hill, resulting in a couple of broken bones in the right leg. Spoke with his wife tonight though, and Vytas is doing well and apparently will be back on the bike by spring. (UPDATE: Bob has posted more information about Vytas’ condition here).
Not sure what happened to the course between the first and second race… but it managed to get much, much, mmmuuuuch muddier. I think I ate more mud than food today.
Apparently putting on fuzzy lycra and ridding your bike around in the first snowfall of the year gets you labelled a “sadist”. Really?
Full results here as always.
