After week 6

Wagner and I pull into the parking lot of the 6th Chicago Cyclocross Cup race to see the body's of those pre-riding the course covered in mud, a lot of mud. Rewind 24 hours, I was sitting in a Starbucks talking about "mud tires" with a few fellow cross racers when I made the proclamation "we will not have a mud race in Chicago, don't even worry about it." Was I wrong.

After the first hill Wagner came around me(on a single speed) poked my leg and took off. I did not see him until after the finish. He took 10Th, I could only get 22ND.

In the 50+ Gary Whalen took 9th, George got 12th.
In the 40+ Mike Grimm got 23rd
Cat 3 Ted "I am BACK" Burger got 12th place and finished with no front brake!!
John Kurtz took lucky 13th

We are still 4th overall in the Team standings.

Up next, Northbrook
