Mud Studs & Studettes

Went over to watch Jingle Cross under the lights on Friday. Had a good time hanging with various members of ShortBus. It was good to see some of the Colorado contingent back in Iowa. The usual beer drinking and heckling ensued. It was fun for all, even the folks on the bikes. We even managed to get a smile out of Mer on the Mt. Krumpet descent. It was mud city owing to the rains the preceding three days in the week. Wheels were ceasing to turn and rear derailleurs were departing frames with great regularity. Fun Fun.

Meredith Miller, the "800 Pound Gorilla" (sorry Mer *lol*), slew all in the elite women. That was great since she's been on the podium several times this year, but never on the top step in this year's cross season. As expected, it was someone named Wells winning the men's race. A link to Cyclocross Magazine here provides more detail.

The above clip is something I found when looking for results for Saturday. It's from last year, but it provides a taste of the insanity. A very nice film.
