Trek CXC Cup 2015
Joey King summed it up "I rode my bicycle and it hurt a lot so I did it again." It was fantastic racing/hurting this past weekend in Waterloo, Wisconsin. The Trek CXC is a C1 event on Saturday and C2 on Sunday. The best CX event in Wisconsin hands down. Saturday we had a number of AMR racers out in different Categories. Joey King Raced masters and singlespeed; Mio Suzuki raced womens 4; Carl Baker (AMR member racing in Bontrager kit), Derek Slates & myself raced both SS and CX4 on Saturday; Laura Andrews did the CX3 Women's; Julie Saeler (AMR member racing for Trek CXC) raced Women's 2's; Shannon Mortimer did the women's masters, CX3, & CX45 mens race! It was a hard day of racing thankfully the tent was well positioned for quick breaks and resting. Laura also had a cooler full of Sassy Cow Chocolate milk ready for our team for post races. #wisconsindariy Single speed race was fun because we had a large group at the start, although that changed very quickly as Derek had mechanical's and Carl involved in a crash. In the 4/5 group I got caught up in the banners trying to avoid a crash and could not get out, so it ended up being a chase of the back of the field. Overall everyone survived and had a great time.
Sunday we decided to do it all again. This time it was just Joey, Shannon, Laura, Carl, myself & Julie racing. The previous days races had gotten to me so this day just was about survival. Again everyone had a great day and fantastic end to the weekend. Looking forward to this race next year.
