Cap City Cross #7

We went to the final race in the Cap City Cross series this past Sunday in Upper Arlington. The weather was sunny, but cold and windy, and the course was bigger than the previous race we had been to. We arrived well after the racing had started, but made it in time to see the womens race and the elite mens. Cyclocross is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, and it’s too bad more people do not show up to watch. I met some really cool friendly people, and now I just need to figure out racers names. I recognize faces, uniforms and bikes, but damned if I’ve figured out their names. So, if anyone knows any of the racers here, please email me and let me know. Enjoy the photos!

Hope you enjoyed all of the pictures from the race. The last two images of the winners, sadly no one stuck around for the ceremony, those that stuck around are all pretty much in the pics. Too bad, come on people you just stood around for an hour in the cold to watch these guys race…in the cold…show them some respect by sticking around for the awards ceremony. *I hop off my soapbox now*

RIDE SAFE!

Peace, Patrick – SSD Crew
