VERGE Cycle Smart Northampton Cross Race Day 2 Video & Photos

Originally uploaded by sipclip&go
It was another glorious day for racing, and spectating out here in western Massachusetts. Again it was a mish-mosh of viewing races, as my 3 year old was slightly less excited then he was on the first day, cutting the day short. I was able to move around the park enough to get some nice footage of the women in the sand, plus a few other good shots of the men racing around a particularly winding part of the race course. They changed the course for today, and the run ups were a little less intense.

Today I sampled a bit in the beer garden. It was pretty refreshing to sip beer on a cold November day.


Even the kids enjoyed racing, and I was happy that I delayed my son’s participation in the kids race. He’s going to have to get those training wheels off to compete with these little kids. I even spied a few pint sized cross bikes, and one kid in full bike gear, Lycra included. These kids don’t mess around!

    ‘Cross is so fun to watch. The racers make it look so easy!

    They sure do make it look easy! I really enjoy watching it, but I wonder if doing it would warp my perspective. I like watching those racers on the back of the pack–they struggle more, but I think it gives mere mortals the more accurate picture of how tough this sport is. My cow bell tolls for them!
