This past weekend Rock’d!

Another batch of race reports brings us into fall, although conditions this weekend were more like mid-June.  First up we see how Adam fared in his quest for cyclocross glory.  He raced at the Hill Yea! NEOCX cross race in Willoughby:

And another CX race on the mtn bike for me. I never expected that redlining for half an hour would be fun. I really enjoy racing but racing offroad is a cool new experience that I will probably continue to do. I keep thinking of things that I can do to get faster and better at cyclocross on my mountain bike. I suppose the best thing I could do is buy a cross bike, but that’s not in the cards. I guess I’ll have to keep racing on super wide/knobby tires and kick butt!

Leah Halloran slapped on the racing flats for a second place overall the Roc the Croc 5k at Crocker Park!!!

Ran Roc the Croc this weekend and it was a blast! The proceeds went to families who have children with cancer. The day started with a 5k. The race went well and I ended up second overall. After the race they had tons of things for kids to see and do. The most notable…stilt walkers. The event ended with a parade to celebrate the true heroes…the kids battling cancer. Definitely headed back next year!

And Zubricky and Rood ran arm in arm (for a while, at least) at the inagural Cleveland Rock & Roll Half Marathon which took in a good bit of downtown as well as the Tremont, Ohio City and Detroit Shoreway neighborhoods.

Scotty:

This was the inaugural race. The course started at the Rock hall and finished at the Casino. Hot and humid and a tough course made for a hard day. I liked the course because you have to race it, not just run hard. I was very happy with my results and I would like to thank everyone who came out to support.  (Ed: Scott, what could possibly be considered tough after American Zofingen??)

Roodski:

Was a great race on brutal course and tough weather conditions. Hot and Humid on October 6. I never expected that.
I am grateful for the Anne riding me in the 2 miles. I was a hurting kid. I It is always fun to battle it out with Scotty.
Not much to say about my race. But of the venue- if you didn’t race you should have.

Awesome jobs everyone!!!
