The First Ever Va Beach Soccer Stadium Crit!!!!!

It's wierd to be at the end of September and still racing on the road, but here we are... After a hard fought 3 loops of the Sat morn stage race, I threw my hat in the ring for a crit on the freshly paved crit loop at the va beach sports plex. I picked up some really nice Specialized all condition tires that just so happen to match my Slingshot color scheme (red, black, and white). They're working really nice and look forward to using them for winter miles.
The course is a .7 mile blacktop with no curbs and no sharp turns to speak of. 20 of us in the A group lined up and had a heck of a time facing the heat, wind, and speed. You can tell the guys who've hung it up for the season, and those who are still holding onto some form. My intent was to work as much as possible, and get used to speed on the CX bike. I think it went well... Before long groups were formed and it was hard to figure what was what. But then again, I usually have a hard time with that anyway. It was good to see three CX out there! Next week, I want to see MORE!
I envision good things to come from this venue in the future, and if you can---come out and support local racing!

Many of you have seen or know of jonathan Devich the photographer of the pro peleton...

Well I got a hold of his Dad--- Bob Devich who lit the fire for his love of the camera.
I put him in a headlock and said "gimme some photos man"!
Just kidding ;-)
I begged and pleaded for some photos for my blog. He said "whats a blog"?
Bob is also a big part of getting this race course built and setup for us.
so enjoy!

After the race I had to hydrate, and do a ton of yardwark at the new doghouse, and clear out the garage, and prep it for a fresh floor covering that will make it SWEET! The house is now ours and a lot of work will be put in this week before the big move down the street next weekend...

    Good race Kevin. Afterwards I went home, sat around, watched football and drank beer. Hope you had fun with the yard work.

    After all the housework, I went over to danbo's to watch The Flying Scotsman----a very good movie!
    And a few well deserved beers. I did get to see some of the Manning brothers games.

    Nice to see a cross bike rockin' it at a crit!

    Rockin is a little strong, rob. Knife to a gun fight is more accurate. forearms on bars...Isn't that against the rules?

  • At 1:08 PM EDT , Blogger Blog Bully said...

    The biggest decision of my day, lil fella, was which bar jersey to wear. Where were you all weekend? Top secret IC training?

    Although crit racing is like Nascar, it doesn't mean we can start a chat about Nascar...blog bully has spoken

     
  • At 9:34 AM EDT , Blogger Blog Bully said...

    Oh come on! Can't you people take credit for your own comments??

     
  • At 9:35 AM EDT , Blogger Marco said...

    The Dingo will say what we can and can't do. And if the fastest guy on your team/Cat 2 BAR Champion wants to talk about NASCAR then we'll talk about NASCAR.

     
  • At 10:12 AM EDT , Blogger Gene Fowler said...

    yeah..... what he said........

    Wait.... I'm like the 3rd or 4th fastest on my team!

    Looks like I surely missed out on the fun. Typical.

     
  • At 12:50 PM EDT , Blogger Blog Bully said...

    And if you had seen him this weekend you wouldn't even say 3rd or 4th...

     
  • At 12:53 PM EDT , Anonymous Coach K said...

    So you want him to be in peak form all year long?

     
  • At 1:40 PM EDT , Blogger Gene Fowler said...

    Hey "downgrade"

    I might be 3rd or 4th on my team but I am still faster than you! And I don't even know who you are!

    Damn "Bully" cut a brother some slack!

    The real bill c is peaking in september, so we know it wasn't him that posted that. Glad you like the shorts though. They're starting to screen door! One more winter on my spin bike in them and they will look like duke's shorts.
