This last weekend marked the long-awaited return of our only local cyclocross race — Morgan Cross! Oct. 5th, 2013 was the last time the event was held and for many locals, including us, it was the first cyclocross race we’d ever experienced. To say that we were excited at the prospect of its return and even more so as a sponsor of the event would be a huge understatement. Along with many volunteers we spent Friday night before the event solidifying the course with stakes and tape, installing barriers, and clearing debris.
…and then we raced bikes!
All day long, y’all!
Nothing like a little staging to settle the nerves…
Finding a solid line in the sandpit was easier said than done!
Among several obstacles the course included a super inconsistent sandpit that claimed many victims, and a burly 20-set staircase to keep things nice and painful.
Topped off the day with some fat bike action!
A heartfelt heckle to all the rad organizers and sponsors that brought on the triumphant return of our local ‘cross race!
