End of the Cyclocross Season

Well, another cross season has come and gone. I'm happy with my first year in the GACX series. Hopefully next year will be better. The last two races i finished in 6th place. The last race i lost fifth in a sprint. The top 5 guys were still way out in front, but maybe next year i'll find a little more speed. Now is the time to ride more for fun than for training. Time to hit the gym to build a little muscle. Sara, Katie and I are going to explore some of the state parks nearby. Heck we paid 30 bucks for the annual pass, we need to get our money's worth out of it.

Here are some pic's from the weekend:

bumpy grass downhill with a steep run up at the bottom
the tougher of the two sets of stairs, i hate uneven steps!!
Here I am Sprinting for the finish, I got a late jump since i didn't realize when i passed this guy going down the bumpy downhill that he was ahead of me and not just lap traffic. If i had a kick like Russell the Muscle i could have taken 5th.
My folks made it out to this race, it's like being in High school again, except where did all that gray hair come from?!?

Sara and Katie at Amicalola Falls for our post race hike.

Katie and me on the hike.

Sara and I got all gussied up for here company Christmas party. I just noticed that i had my coat buttoned in this pic, you can tell i wear a coat and tie all the time. Sara looks great!
