Snow Crossed

leave a comment »

It appears that winter has decided to bless northern Utah with it’s presence.  Temperatures in the 20’s and a gray sky greeted racers for the final points race of the 2009 UTCX Series.  While many in the state struggled to simply drive their cars, these brave souls ventured forth in to the elements in search of double points and the chance to say, “Yes I race Cross, in all conditions.”  No fair weather racing here, no sir.  Ogden’s Fort Buenaventura Historic Park provided the venue. Ma Nature, the weather.  Participants, their own embrocation.

As the day progressed, the course became more and more trecherous, leading to many instances of this…..

In the end, The Church Of The Big Ring took home bragging rights as the top team for the 2009 season.  Bart Gillespie (MonaVie/Cannondale) holds on to his title as Cross King by a narrow 20 point margin over Ali Goulet (CotBR).  On the ladies side Erika Powers (Revolution Cycles/Peak Fasteners) carries off the honors of top female crosser.  Top honors go to the Utah Valley University Grill for their Double Cheese Burger.

Just for fun a short trip down by the river.
