Another year of mountain bike racing is in the books. Congratulation to Ben as he finished the season with 3 wins and many great results. He finished up the season in 3rd place overall in the Open Jr catagory.

Lynne & I also finished with good placings and look forward to next year.

As we all pause to reflect on our lives after hearing the unfortunate news about one of our own yesterday, I suggest we all take pause and rethink our attitudes towards life, traffic, and our loved ones.

Peace!

WOW - what a racing year it's been. And now with one more Mountain Bike race left on the calendar (Sheboygan) I can't believe it's almost over for another year. Friend Jim F wanted to know when I was going to update the blog again. This is it!

The summer racing went well for Lynne, Ben, and I. We had a blast out west at Nationals in Granby, Colorado. Ben and I then raced the Ore to Shore event in Marquette, Michigan. He took 34th overal and first in his age group. I raced Fat Tire Tire Fest with a goal to go under the 3 hour mark. Goal not made! With conditions being worse this year versus last year I've been told that my finishing time of one minute slower than last year was a pretty good result.

WORS racing has been fun this again. The Open Jr racers have been bringing their 'A' game and racing action has been fast and furious. Lynne and I have done well at many of the WORS events with Lynne taking third this year and me finishing fourth.

Cyclo-cross action began this past weekend for Ben as he raced the WCA Domes race and finished 2nd in the Jr's and around 6th or 7th in Cat 4 men's race - after t-boning a fellow racer that had crashed in front of him and flipping over the bars. Working hard at getting through the crowd lap by lap was a good learning experience for him.

Next up is the Grafton Cyclo-cross and WORS Sheboygan races this weekend. I may even attempt the Grafton race! Until next time.

It's been a while and just to touch base - Winter appears to have settled in for good - Santa Rampage was a blast on Saturday. Once I get my photos off loaded from the camera I'll share with you all.
