Cross is On!

September 16, 2010

Last weekend saw the UCI cyclocross opener in our backyard here in the Lehigh Valley. Naturally, we came out in force with the camper and El Camino for both the racing and spectating. The boss-man Ryan (Of Flanders) Pomajevich took a Top 10 in the masters race despite a few tumbles and the rest of at least tried to look good while suffering.

Thanks to the UCI points, we also got to watch a hell of turnout for the men’s and women’s pro races. Luke Keough won took the men’s title despite still being too young for beer. Cyclocross-favorite Adam Myerson, however, took second after Luke pulled under him in a final corner. And Adam, as we know, loves a good Belgian brew.

Sunday saw the smaller Concrete Crate Cross run by Ray Ignosh. We used almost an identical course, but backwards and with a sprinkling of rain. The moisture turned Saturday’s fast, but unforgiving, course into a smooth a tacky dream. We were rolling around corners like slot cars.

I think we’re all looking forward to the races to come, the laps the hammer, and the beers to drain. Hell yeah, it’s cross season!
