2011 Kisscross Season Finale-Holland

IMG_8013


The 2011 Kisscross season ended on Sunday in true Belgian cyclocross style. For the first time this season we had some nasty adverse conditions. There was rain, wind, cold and mud. More mud than we have had this entire season and I for one was looking forward to it. I think everyone was getting a little too comfortable with the mild weather at most of the races this year. The mostly flat stadium course was set up nicely with a couple tough stair sections, a couple off camber sections and one section where the mud was so deep you were forced to dismount your bike and run for a while until you reached the pavement again. This was my first cross race without barriers but the conditions were so tricky that I didn’t even realize they weren’t there. Earlier in the week there was some smack talking going on between Captain Rick and Kim Thomas of the Fusion team. So I guess it was settled that the team with the best overall finishers would be receiving free beer from the losers. Founders racers came out in droves to back up Rick’s smack talking, and we laid the smack down on a tough Fusion team. Founders racers are not used to actually buying their own post race beers so we sure as hell were not going to buy beer for anybody else.
Another awesome course, another awesome season. See you in March at the Barry Roubaix!
