After a rainy start the sun came out and Kerry raced to 2nd place finish at the Stony Creek XC race on 9/7/08 in Sport Women 25-39. Another Podium finish for Dark Horse Racing! Congrats, Kerry!
And Up North, Jody raced to a first place finish at the Chippewa Hills Trail Benefit Race. Here's her write up:
I raced The Chippewa Hills Pathway Thunderbay River Assn Trail Benefit on Saturday. There were only about 50 racers. The course sucked for the first 2.5 miles: Climb, climb, down, twist, turn, (caution sign) brake brake brake twist. Swear. Climb climb climb climb down down twist turn brake brake brake twist. swear.
Then came the water station. I was pissed because I was told it was fast and fun. So far it was not fast. But then the fun started. Climb, zoom, swoosh up down zoom swoosh, caution sign, swoosh, caution sign, zoom, caution sign, up down zoom swoosh up down zoom swoosh climb climb swoosh swoosh swoosh climb climb.
It was damn fun!!!!
Then I had to do the second lap: Climb climb climb climb down down twist turn brake brake brake twist. Swear. Repeat the fun fun fun part. Then the end: Single track, road, single track, single track, single track. Done. 1st place for me!
I have never done a race with so much single track. Yay!
This may be a race more of us will try next year! Congrats Jody!
