Teaberry



MBM racer Josh "Bucky" Spencer spanks all comers in today's 20 miler actually (23.2). Thats the good news. The "bad" news for Josh is the spontaneous demand from the crowd during the awards presentation that he advance to the 40+ mile crowd! Congratulations to all of the MBM first timers including a strong finish by Brad in the 20, Scott in the 10 and a valiant attempt derailed by tire issues for Brian. Matt won the 10 for the old guys. Many other strong finishes by the seasoned regulars, to many to list. And koodos to Chuck for reversing the finish order from the last race, (yea he got me, 3 minutes). Next year chuck, I concede iron cross in advance.

Thanks to all of my fellow racers for making this event so much fun, thanks to the volunteers and G-burg for putting on a good event, best T-shirt to date.

Congrats to Bucky BUT the t-shirts are f*cking stupid. I wouldn't even wash my car with that t-shirt.

Welll, you can partially blame me for the t-shirts. Look back a few months to see where the offense occurred.

Brian F. finished the 40 with 7 flats!

The shirts show the hubris of the "michauxslovakian mafia" however it still made me laugh. I don't take anything on those shirts to seriously.

That was the best five miles of my life! Yea I know, the race was ten. Maybe next time. Thanks to all that waited for me at the top of any hill this past year. I tried like hell today.
To those that finished and those that won, good show!
It was pretty cool to see all the MBM jerseys.

Hey Nevada BOP and the rest of MBM missed you today. At the spa? Your riding to fast to stay home. Hope all is well.

Nevada was at the final rest stop on the 40 loop. He was back in the parking lot hanging out after most had left. Gotta love volunteering!

I had a great weekend, I'm glad so many others did too.

Great day for a ride! Had fun despite overhydrating and fighting cramps from about mile 2 onward.

greensickle said...

To me it felt like just another Sunday ride....out with a bunch of guys I can't keep up with!...Good times!

Congrats to everyone that raced yesterday especially the guy who won the 20 under the MBM banner. Nice job Buck!
I sorry that I didn't race with you all but I'm damn glad I didn't give those GETTYSBURG BICYCLE AND FITNESS premadonnas any of my money.

dirtygirlmagnet said...

but they deserve our money, since they own the forrest we ride in.

I'm just thankful The "mafia" allowed MBM (and we outnumbered even G-burg jerseys) to ride in their forest for the race. How gracious of them! And by the way: I REALLY need a new Cross bike and I will definately be checking out Merv's! Oh and I think I will only do Zack Adams' races from now on in Michaux.

Trish - The Cycle Works has a 51" Redline in stock for around $800. I don't know what components are on it though. I emailed you info on a Bianchi 'cross bike too. Good luck!

Nevada said...

Rob - yes a spa day right up my alley! I had a mud facial it was great.
Actually I was just lazy. Rode with a few guys early in the morning before the race and then helped at the last aid station on the 40 mile. Sorry I missed most of you. I was hoping to be back sooner. See you on the trails.

Tomi said...

ZOMG!! They made T-shirt poking fun at ALL of us, boycott, boycott, BOYCOTTTTT!!!!!

Ya'll need to lighten up.

CrashedAgain said...

T shirt is great!. Somehow, they come up with consistently good T shirts. This might be the best, with its bit of local humor. Thanks to Gburg for another fun race.

Lightly used 26er tire for sale. Only 40 miles on it. And I ride great lines so I'm sure it's fine. (not compatible with Stan's anymore)

Don't sweat it Josh. They gave me $hit years ago when I won the clydesdale category. Even back then, I wish I wasn't over 200.
