    • 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.

      • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

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

  8. 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.
