CX Course, thanks to Randy


Randy must have spent a long hot afternoon out with his mower today. I stumbled upon him as he was about 75% done push-mowing a CX course like last year. I was explaining to my mom what he was out there doing, and she replied, "He's been out there quite a while, I think he's mowing the whole field." I'm sure he'll tell you he can navigate using the earth's magnetic fields like many insects, and I'm now inclined to believe him. I went out & GPS'd a lap when he was finished, and would you believe it came out 1.02 miles? He's either damn good, or damn lucky! (I hope this pic attaches correctly)

Not sure about the barriers. I would think on the top flat somewhere but Bradbob pointed out maybe keepin em back to the edges and outta sight would keep em from being vandalized. We need to make some that are portable. Any of you frogpokers wanna come up with something? The trail hippie

Nice job with the mower Randy... Thanks dude!
That's alot tougher riding than I expected. I was ready to pack it in after only 3 laps but I toughed it out for a few more.
My vote would be for one set of barriers on top after the 4th switchback heading back north and a second set just before the trees right after the cork screw. I think to get the most out of training for the barriers you need to have a little speed going into them... If they get vandalized we'll just have to deal with it... Just my opinion for what it's worth.
I'll see if we have any scrap materials at the shop that might work for the barriers.

Nice work Randy! I should be up in a few weeks to check it out, I will let you all know...I will be racing this weekend, leaving Sat. night, i guess Gary has a place for us to stay...not sure how much room, I will check?
Don't forget to register for Jingle Cross if you are going up! They start you by how you register. I will already be in Iowa, this year I plan on Racing Friday Night and Saturday. So, I will be back with the family on Saturday night...Talk to you freaks later! JP
