    Great racing today on an awesome course. Long shot… but I lost a Garmin out there. If anyone found it please let me know

    Amazing race day. The course was amazing. Good times all around.

      Thank you! Love to see the lower 4b’s getting some coverage.

      awwwwwww yeah! thanks for taking pics of the 4B’s!

    I lost a couple derailleur pulley wheels out there.


    • 10/29/2012 at 1:16 pm

      Ron, I think I saw them go flying off into the grass shortly after your derailleur exploded. I must admit it was a cool sight to see as silver pieces went flying upward after hearing a loud bang. However it most likely wasn’t very cool for you. You are either very strong or your derailleur was on it’s last legs…..or perhaps both. Better luck next week, that’s what keeps us coming back time and time again.

        10/29/2012 at 1:23 pm

        Awesome. As far as i can tell i broke my chain which then got caught up in my rear wheel and sucked the derailleur with it.


        • 10/29/2012 at 1:58 pm

          It was in the 40 plus race correct? All I can say is that it was an awesome sight!


          • 10/29/2012 at 2:07 pm

            Yes. I was so jazzed to be sitting 12th. It was going to be my best result in the 40+. And only 700m to go. Next time I guess.


            • 11/01/2012 at 7:46 am

              Ron, not only did I get a front row view of the carnage of your derailleur exploding but I took your spot finishing 12th. It looks like from where you started you really had a great race. What’s even more ironic is I just realized that for a year you Frank and I raced together for the Pony Shop back in 1988 or 89. What a small world. See you Sunday.


              • 11/01/2012 at 9:24 am

                Yeah i had a great race and that’s what made it so disappointing. I’m also trying to improve my start position so that really hurt. That’s awesome about the Pony Shop days. We’ll have to connect some more. I’m not racing this weekend but I’ll be at Indian Lakes on Saturday.

      You earned the call-up, Andy!


  8. 10/28/2012 at 7:25 pm

    My first real cross race and I had a great time! The crowd was a blast.

    What a great course today!! Props to Rob, Peter, and all that help make it happen at Bicycle Heaven


  10. 10/28/2012 at 9:59 pm

    Thanks Bicycle Heaven for a blast today! Glad I could help out a little, only to have my arse handed to me by a 10 year old. I still don’t get why everyone booed me on the hill out of the woods for elbowing the kid and taking his spot :p I kid! I kid!

    Did anyone else see Georgia Gould’s twin sister Gina in the 4B’s? ;-)

    Regular work to do this morning but hope to get some shots up later today – I have shots from all the races!! Awesome races – so much fun!


    • 10/29/2012 at 8:57 am

      Can’t wait to see them!


    • 10/29/2012 at 10:03 am

      Me too, Lauri, you’re photos are great.


    • 10/29/2012 at 10:43 am

      Nice to have met you yesterday. (I am the one that said Mondays are Zero Productivity Days due to my frequenting this page on a quarterly hour basis.) Thanks for documenting these historic events. ;-)

    I LOVED this course. Thank you to everyone who helped out. It was very fun.


  15. 10/29/2012 at 11:45 am

    Oh, someone needs to let the Velo City shirt dude know that they need to make sizes a bit larger. I would love to get a shirt, but being a full-figured male, I can’t wear any of the shirts. The large fits my Maltese perfectly, and she is only 7 pounds. Enough of this whippet love!

    Can I just say I’m sorry to the guy with the megaphone during the 4b races. I think I ran over your foot.


    • 10/29/2012 at 12:13 pm

      No need to say sorry. More than likely he was one of Rob’s guys and probably deserved it :) Oh, speaking of sorry, Rob & I decided during the 40+ race that there is no “sorry” in cyclocross!

    Any word on when the W4 results will be posted? Not that I was in contention for anything, but just curious. Thx.

    This course was so, so AWESOME. Thanks BH for putting on such a great race!! And Rob, thanks for the muffin…I probably would’ve died out there…


    • 10/30/2012 at 3:00 pm

      You and Ben are in the running for the most wattage per couple. I feel a little uncomfortable pointing this out, but it was Shelly’s muffin

        it was a good muffin.


  19. 10/29/2012 at 2:55 pm

    Snowy Mountain Photography was busy busy busy at Campton Hills. Photos from every race, costumes galore.

    I don’t know who won the costume contest overall, but props go out to the W4 field for having the most and best costumes as a percentage of total riders.

    This was only my third race, so what do I know, but big props to the course designers. Such great rhythm. Definitely my favorite so far.

    Bicycle Heaven Race Report – There is a link at the bottom with about 400 pics from the day.


  24. 10/30/2012 at 9:56 am

    I’ve started to add just the costume photos to my facebook page – will also be uploading these to my website this week and will share links as they are uploaded.

    Last Lap 40+ Can you tell where the guy behind me bumped me rounding the final turn?http://youtu.be/Q6N7WORvd1k


  27. 10/30/2012 at 2:56 pm

    Thanks to everyone in the Chicross community who came out and made Campton Cross an awesome event. Tony Reinks won the costume contest! He was a freakishly amazing geisha girl a couple of years ago as well and so this was a long time coming. The engineering alone that kept the giant lampshade on his head was worth the bottle of Yaeger, and seeing his hairy, stocky self saunter down the main walkway in fishnet stockings set the tone for the day.


  28. 10/31/2012 at 7:36 am

    Here are the photos from the Women’s 123, Mens 50+ & 6+ and single speed.


  29. 10/31/2012 at 7:37 am

    and the link to the Cat 3 race


    • 10/31/2012 at 10:55 am

      Great to meet you Lauri – impressed by your passion for the CCC. Keep an eye out for me if you travel to Montrose.


      • 10/31/2012 at 12:18 pm

        Thanks Eric! Great to meet you as well. I’m not sure if I’ll be up at Montrose or not – need to check my calendar! Have a good weeken!


  30. 10/31/2012 at 9:38 am

    Here’s our write-up. Thanks Bicycle Heaven! http://www.tuxedothunder.com/races/ccc-7-campton-cross/


  31. 10/31/2012 at 10:49 am

    Sorry it took a while, but there are literally one thousand photos from Campton up at http://facebook.com/burnhamracing. If I didn’t catch you, you were either moving too fast or your costume involved some kind of well-conceived forest camouflage. Either way, well done. Now somebody take my camera away before I hurt myself.


  32. 10/31/2012 at 12:17 pm

    And here are the Women’s Cat 4 and Juniors photos


  33. 10/31/2012 at 8:51 pm

    Cat123 photos! 4A&B tomorrow!



  34. 11/01/2012 at 8:21 pm

    Finally – Cat 4A & 4B Photos! See you all in Woodstock!


    • 11/03/2012 at 9:42 am

      Thanks for taking these great photos. I look forward to you capturing my simultaneous suffering and pleasure on the bike at Woodstock!
