Platte City CX Pics

Here's some pics from Boss Cross 3 in Platte City
Course was fun but difficult by CX standards with a pretty fair amount of climbing, soft ground and few muddy spots to navigate.
The cat 4 35 plus race was early so I did that one while Randy, Nate, David and Brad did the regular cat 4 so I was able to get these pics. Nate had some early race chain problems and DNF'd so unfortunately I did'nt get any pics of him

David leading the out the Joetown boys early

Randy shouldering his bike, actually passed the dude in front
of him on foot... Pretty impressive from my perspective


Start of the Cat 4 Race
Great racing guys, hopefully we can get a good group out for the races next weekend!

Hey all! That was a TOUGH freakin course on Sat. a.m.! When I saw 5 to go in my race, I thought no freakin way!! You guys are doing great, toeing the line is half the battle, the series points add up and reward you for your efforts...I am sitting in 7th for the 35 plus Boss Cross Series, Hoppe is leading his cat. 4 35 plus group with one race in that series to go on Dec. 5th, you all need to be at that race to cheer on Craig as series champ! Sorry I missed you today Randy, spent some QT with the family and then raced the 3/4's. I loved that course today! Took a different approach and finished 8th. I think I made a break through in my fitness today and looking forward to racing next weekend! Hope to see you all out on Sat. night or Sunday in Leavenworth, KS. The Leavenworth course will be awesome I am sure!

Later,

JP

Notice there was no pics of me?
I was the mountain biker dressed as a road biker doing a cyclocross race... Hey, it's Halloween everyday for me!

JDOUG said...

I like that!

In the first pic of Cameron I just wanted to add that not only is he riding a single speed in the open class but I'm fairly certain it's a fixie and I think he still beat half the field!

JDOUG said...

I read it is a fixie, he is also now sponsord by Specialized for mtb... Crazy good...
We need him to get a timed lap in at Krug, see how bad we suck...

Yeah...Cameron is wicked good! He is also one of the coolest pro's you could ever meet and extremly humble! I will get him up to Krug this Winter for sure...JP
