Saturday's #1 A beautiful day for a race, #2 Amazing endurance

Chelsea after competing in her first Cyclocross race. Thirty minutes of slugging through fields, up hills, over barriers and through mud.

Chad is cheering Chelsea on with a cowbell. We cheered from the sidelines, but Chad ran right into the course to cheer his wife on.

Chad's turn. The 'A' class entries spent 45 minutes (!) doing the same. It's a grueling task, but everyone is lighthearted and good-natured about it.

Chad and his main competitor coming up a hill.

Bodies and bikes are covered in mud at the end.

  1. Oh, what fun! Not a bad way to stay in shape, either (if you don't mind mud). I love that your posting more photos, Leonora--they're wonderful to see. :)
