msg #1 – 10/13/2007
Results from MSG #1 on 10/13/2007 are posted. The beautiful weather and dry, fast course brought out a record number of racers. 103 Belgian CX’ers pinned on a race number and tested their mettle. The day dawned clear and chilly on this Saturday. However, by the time the racing heated up at 11am, the temperatures had too. Fresh off his win last weekend at the Mack Daddy CX race, Will Black demolished the Pro/1/2 field in similar fashion while Cara McCauley won the Pro/1/2/3 Women’s event.
Perhaps the most exciting finish of the day was the 50-yard drag race the tifosi was treated to when Andy Applegate and Eric Wondergem rounded the last turn together. Andy, seasoned veteran that he is, had the presence of mind to throw his bike in the sprint.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered and helped with course setup/takedown, registration, course marshals, food, officials, etc. A special thank you goes out to John Chandler, M.D. for his expertise and care at the barriers during the first race. Without him, things could have been much different for the injured rider, Jeremy Chandler (his son). Volunteers, there are too many people to list, but without you, it would not have been the same. If you have not pitched in to help yet, please bear in mind that if many people share the load, it is lighter for all those involved.
POD results are here. You may pick up your prize at registration next week.
