Green Acres cyclocross race report

This was easily my favorite course of the year so far. It had a monster climb that you could barely ride up, lots of off camber, some 180s, a nice downhill, some evil-ly spaced barriers, a couple of nice little runups, just enough recovery stretches, and the weather cooperated to bring along some muddy cyclocross condititons. The promoter did a great job of making it an event, with brats, beer, a nice fire to warm up by while watching the race, and some sweet swag to keep everyone around for a while. Good turnout, lots of spectators, lots of people to catch up with, and some great racing action. Chip timing made for quick and accurate results.

Crossniacs were well represented with CJ, Jared, Nate, Ladric, Guy, Erik, FPA and more. CJ was 1st and Jared 2nd in the 35+ race and Ladric was 2nd in the 45+ race. This was a tough course, but the best time I've had on the 'cross bike so far this year! Crossniacs can be proud.
