Not typical cyclocross weather in Wisconsin, however we made the best of the unseasonably warmer temps. High was roughly around 50's for the end of the day. No snow or mud, more of a dusty fast track. The course had lots of great turns, a few off camber areas, two dismounts and a cheeseburger. Yep... Cheeseburger. The women's race even had an award for the first 3 women to jump the cheeseburger. Proudly the first and third racer to do so were our very own Heather and Heidi. Liz had the best podium finish with a second place finish in the Women's 4/5's. Congrats LIZ! Not shown in the photos, Mike Van Dyke & Chris Brown also raced, but it was during races where the photographer didn't get a chance to take photos. Also a few shots of Brandon racing his second race of the day in Single Speed fashion with a Wrestling mask on to please the promoters and their wrestling theme event. Hopefully more photos to come. Again lots of fun to partially end the season. The Mid West Championships will be held tomorrow in Sun Prairie.
2018-Lots of fun things are happening in cycling, we are one of them. Now is the time that people start looking for new teams or their very first team. If that is you, then welcome to AMR. We accept all levels of riders. We do have a few asks for every member, from don't fling poo (monkey joke) to participate in at least two events as an Angry Monkey.
So what is new for 2018-
The idea of a blog and posting updates is awesome. The practice of updating a blog and posting updates is, not as much awesome. It isn't because we haven't been busy. We have been out and about at races, leading group rides and just having good old fashion fun. Below are some images of AMR Members who have been out and about the past few months, but didn't always get a full post update.
Hard work pays off. Leading up to the event AMR members put in countless hours working on the course prep & volunteering for the thousands of people who would be out that weekend in September. From raking, to sawing, removing stumps, course marshals, beer sales, clean up and more, we helped make it happen, which makes us proud. Biggest shout out is to AMR member Carl Bakker who led all the volunteers for the event. His hard work shows. The team had a great showing at the race too. See the slide show below. We had a number of teammates racing and here is the list of racers:
Brandon Andrews, Laura Andrews, Chris Brown, Heather Gregoire, Liz Horning, Casey Kohner, David Lieck, Jesus Sanchez, Nico Schifano, Jeff Schifano, Storm Schmitt, Dustin Morfey, Mike Van Dyke, Brianne Van Dyke, Heidi Zepeda and Julie Saler* &Travis Saler* who race with Trek CXC team, but also support AMR.
