ROCKESHA!

Leto's got nothin' on us.

With a group this large in a town this small, there's still a few kinks to work out. Overall, hope everyone had a good time and thanks for coming out! If we get a nice weekend in January...

FRIDAY! FRIDAY! FRIDAY!!

Yes Yes Yes Folks!! We're doing it again!!

Rockesha Ride this Friday @6:00 pm!

Come out for about a 1hour tour of the Fox River Parkway and Riverwalk. We'll do the usual- bell ringing Past Carroll, Mass down Sunset and West Ave drags. All this culminates in downtown Waukesha where we'll find some good food and also sample some of Spring City's finer establishments.

BUCKLE UP, ITS BEEN AWHILE.

Wow. I understand a leafless November, but sleeveless?

Yeah, 70 some degrees today! Love Indian Summer!

Forget cross! On a day like this onetrack needs to be slayered! 3+ hours of rippin' Kettles! Even caught up with Forrest, who was also burning off the amazing Chicken curry dinner our good friends Krista & Brendan had us over for last night (Thanks guys!).

A few more sessions like that Fo and you'll be on the WETC program as well! Anyway, enough about today, lets catch up on some things you might've missed out on and also whats coming up, OK?

Nearly a week ago Russell threw down his 2nd Annual Tour of Tosa. Without getting into too many details(not only for legal reasons but because I'm just lazy), all I'll say is twice as many people were clued into the Shedmasters craziness this year and I don't see why twice as many wouldn't be there next year. If your still not sure, here's a blip of the Figure 8 Crit Race of Death!


There's also some less incriminating photos here, here & here.


Another thing thats still going on is Lapham Peak Wednesdays! Word from Jack is that while riding has become optional, eating is manadatory, so bring a dish to pass and all will be forgiven.

Looking ahead, I think another Rockesha Ride (aka Ranchito ride) is in the works for Friday Nov. 20. Mark your calendars. We may or may not hit El Ranchito, hence the name change, but it'll still be the same Spring City fun you're accustomed to. I'll try to reserve this weather as well but no guarantees..

On a sad note, I heard from Maciej today that the time him and his brother, Marcin, have with their mom is becoming shorter and shorter very quickly. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Now, gotta get back to this fine day.

After a good day Saturday, these two Tosa Mofo's caught me cuttin through their turf. Luckily we was right on the county line where they warned me to keep on rollin' and not even think about comin' back- til next Sunday! Who knows whats gonna happen then!

BEECHWOOD CROSS!

Word from Mike Curtes:

True that both WCA CX races for this weekend are cancelled due to perfect cross weather. Reason enough to get something new off the ground. Beechwood Recoil Cross will lay the foundation. Sunday 2pm. No Categories. 60 for all. $5 donations welcomed. Rain or rain or rain or shine. Spread the good word to those that you know will groove. BYO beer, grillables, bells, clean bikes, dogs, smiles, towels, shoes, legs, lungs, and ideas for the birth of our new Crosshairs CX Series. We’ll provide the grass, hills, mud, hills, fires, hills, grills, and hills. Years from now you can say you were there. Find someone who been…….and find your way.

See ya in the field!

Not sure I'll be able to make it, but trust me, these guys know how to throw an event! Good luck!

UNLIMITED RADNESS!



photos:Chudy, Brittany & Regina
It really never ends. Saturday involved shot guns, flyovers, wool, drinking, fire jumping, an amazing array of stews, cookies, dogs, Douglas, swag and even a little bike racing. Thanks to all the fine people who make happen, it was a Blast!

Sunday, Kelli and I headed south of the border to Do The Rock. That went well too, she took the win in the 8 mile and I won the 35 miler. We figured that earned us a Culvers stop for dinner.

See ya then!

FALL COLOR FEST '09






photos:Kelli & John Hanson


With rain the night before and a big cross race going on up the road, turnout for this years FCF was surprisingly well. Nathan was off the front early and never looked back, while I lead the chase group of Maciej and Ted Hanes up the northern route of the 28 mile loop. My attempts to stretch the group out took its toll as I let Maciej by when we hit the climbs at Emma and did my best to hold off Ted for 5 more miles down the connector. After crossing Young Rd., Ted made his move in a field section to go after Maciej. I dropped into survival mode the last couple miles and held on to 4th. I was happy for Nathan since I know he was gunning for this race and had fun racing with Ted & Maciej. Good to see Carlos roll in a little bit after me in 5th, putting 3 of the WETC riders in the top 5! Thanks to Trek, Wheel & Sprocket and the Bike Patrol for putting on a fun event!

SCOTT'S LAST STOP IN WAUKESHA!


Think riding around the clock is hard? Imagine riding around the world. If you're in Waukesha this Friday(and why wouldn't you be?), you can ask Scott Stoll what its like. You can even pick up his book, Falling Uphill and read about his adventures. Seriously, one of the coolest people I've met in the past few months and his experiences are an inspiration to many. If you're in town Friday night be sure to stop by Martha Merrells on Main and say 'Hi'. While we're at it, anyone up for a ride then?

LAST ONE


Into the rain & darkness- Pirate, Rick, Matt G, Matt G & young 'Contador'.
