FGD Challenge—Post-Menno Cross

Saturday's race was fantastic. While it was entertaining for spectators like me to watch, it sucked for the racers (see Mike's race review below).

It was great to have Kyle and Michelle finally get out for a race. We've been after those two since there was still snow on the ground to get out and race. Hopefully it won't be their last showing. Rumour has it Michelle's out buying some cross tires for the Bourkvale throwdown.

RRR fielded a team of 6 riders which matches our best showing at a race this season. Unfortunately, those black shirts seem to multiply like rabbits come cross season. With 13 riders out, the FGBC quelched any hopes we had at reeling them back in the FGD Challenge. I dare say, however, that if we can maintain or increase our numbers (oh, Larry/Jane, where art thou?) and the FGBC continues to under-inflate their tires, we may be able to slow the bleeding.

Saturday was a 109-59 victory for the black.

Joke all you want about his wardrobe malfunctions...Brad's a stud. He'll prove that again on Sunday.


  1. Brad is a stud. All that talk about how old and slow he is. We at the FGBC don't buy it. Rumour has it some of his competition are moving up from B to A for the remainder of the season. I'm predicting that the Impaler will find his way onto the B podium before the season is done. That is awesome.

  2. I have to find a way to derail the Wheels of Justice to get there, but hey, all's fair in love and war, right?

  3. Maybe I'll distract him with some mid-race purse snatching.

  4. Agreed - all's fair. But I feel compelled to point out that I'm far more likely to be derailed by pre-race beers. Just sayin'.
