U.S Grand Prix of Cyclocross - Mercer
7:30 a.m.: Art and I pull up to Mercer County Park in a light misting rain. It had been raining there already for two days. Cars were lining up in the field.... over a thousand registered racers. This was the big foshizzle come to New Jersey. Racing from Campmor were: Laura, Tara and Art only in his 5th cross race. Destiny or my my better judgement had me at this race to support, and I do love to give back to my dear friends and teammates at the races at least one day a year. This was it.... slicker, rubber booties and umbrella. I had a blast!
Mud, lots of excitement, mud with grass, cowbells, mud, screaming, and more mud. What a day. I was exhausted just spectating. The Campmorians rocked out there with 3 podium finishes and no pitt bikes. Just hard working legs and spirits! -Ellen
Art finishing 3rd behind Richard Sachs
Laura 1st and 2nd place for both days
ah yes, and the clean up.....
