Hibernia Race Report

Hibernia STXC ahr-166 mhr-176

Expert A-Raced against Ryan Leech,Wes Schempf,Ray Adams,Kyle Hammaker,Nathan Diebert,Zach Adams,Martin Kell,etc…

Couldn't match the starting acceleration of the leaders.Settled into a groove and started clawing people back after the second lap or so.Passed one of the riders and was reeling in Tim Messersmith from Trek-but as the bell lap sounded everybody on the whole course seemed to surge ahead with one last attack and I lost hold on Messersmith.I attacked as well but still wasn't able to keep from getting lapped by the two leaders(Leach and Hammaker) 50 yards from the finish line.--------yay I wasn't last!!!!

Yeti ARC-X
Those who live in Colorado have probably seen the occasional Yeti cross bike at the races�but they were rare, custom bikes that were made exclusively for elite racers and well-connected shop employees. Well, those days are over, check out the 2008 ARC-X

Nittany MBA Spring Group Ride

Hey Kids!

The annual spring Greenwood Furnace mountain bike group ride will be held Sunday, April 29th. It is a few weeks earlier than normal due to races and Mother's Day. We'll meet at 11am at Greenwood Furnace State Park in the picnic area behind the ranger station off route 305, just over the bridge on the left. We will have both intermediate and advanced rides. Nittany MBA will also have burgers afterwards. If people would like to bring a side dish or desert, it would be appreciated but certainly not necessary. This is always a fun time for everybody.

Sunday MTB Ride


Is anyone going to show up at Caledonia?
I'm willing to ride RAIN OR SHINE.

If nobody wishes to do the same,I'm going to ride @ Mont Alto because I know the area better.-----
How about some feedback if you're gonna make it.

Put on your rain slickers for 2-2.5 hours.

Joel Moats

PS ---The Hibernia Short Track was cancelled due to the Huge Snow Storm we are having.Hmmm

Ride Report - Where have all the cyclists gone?

Riders: Sue Witter, Chris Bratthauar

So it's a bit windier and colder than usual for this time of year...maybe 20 degrees or so with 20+ mph winds. I expected the ride to be lightly attended on Thursday night, but figured someone would show up. At 4:45 pm I was the only one in the parking lot and I was starting to think that the Thursday night ride location had changed without me knowing.

Then Witter's YUV (yuppie utility vehicle) slinked into the lot. Whew, I thought, atleast I don't have to ride in the cold by myself tonight. We both got dressed in enough gear for a January ride and headed out.

Once we got moving it was relatively easy to stay warm on the climbs but the descents were a bit chilly. Two hours on a cold Thursday night and we packed it in. We got back to the cars right about 7 pm with the temperature dropping along with the little sunlight that was left.

Hopefully, as the weather warms, the rest of the Thursday night crew will turn up.

Happy Easter!
