2009 Cyclocross Recap

This post is way overdue but things have been unexpectedly busy in the off-season so far. Not a bad thing by a long shot this blog has been easy to overlook. In any case, while my personal results were pretty poor by any standards, the racers we put on our wheels had some fantastic results.

I've probably missed quite a few results and along with these standouts there were countless top 5s and 10s in some of the nations most competitive cross races. Added to that are the many results posted in the amateur ranks by our racers in our sponsored clubs and customers across the county. I'm extremely proud of all our sponsored athletes and teams and while my chances of personally winning races are pretty low for the foreseeable future, it's a great feeling to have talented riders winning on wheels I've built.
