More Cyclocross, Colorado State Championships & a Slow SS Sunday

We raced the Boulder Res for the 3rd time of the season on a cold & windy Saturday. We set up the beer tent with a few Spot Brand tents to spread the gospel of beer & bikes. They had a few bikes along including the "brother" of our "Black & Tan" Single speed belt, the "Tan & Black" 1 x 9 chaindrive. Sorry about the lack of pictures, but come to the Cyclocross State Championship to see them yourself. Speaking of the CCXSC, the good word of the street says it's gonna be run in Lyons, CO! I rode the area today & we can lay a killer course including & a tough run/climb & tricky good bike handling sections. Of course I'm not in charge of laying out the course but I'm excited to see what Brian can do with it. Here are some shots of the Races this past weekend.Dale rollin' the Belt DriveBlue Sky Velo under the view of Haystack Mountain.

Saturday night was big in Lyons so we hustled home to see the "Parade of Lights", Fireworks & then the Live Music @ OB who was celebrating the 5 year anniversary. Sunday morning thethought of the long drive & racing at Bear Lake had faded, but the Packers weren't playing so DC & I grabbed the single speeds & headed out to Hall Ranch. I love winter evenings at hall. Sharing the calm area with the deer & ripping snow covered single track. We started out at the casa de Chase & a shared Gordon.

We enjoyed the view with a shared brew before heading back down

& we're out

If you can't get enough of us you can check out what these mag's have to say.

See you next weekend on our hometurf as Lyons gets the first taste of Cyclocross. Speaking of taste, come to Oskar Blues after the race & get a FREE beer with your pinned number.
