kelley acres

_JF00200_20081005-6

made a few pictures of the cat 4 race at kelley acres this morning while i was waiting for my race... here are a few of them that i'm particularly happy with. they seem to "get" the feeling of a cross race.

i raced the 3/4 and after 1 cross race last season, none so far this year, and no training for the last month (and not much before that) i paid dearly. i was (nearly?) dfl, lapped by the top 4, and suffering like a dog. cool -- if not very traditional -- course that favors people who can climb and ride.

great fall morning light (aided by custom optimize image settings) makes for some beautiful colors...

Hi, as a mt. bike aficionado, i thought you and your readers would like to know about the the Mount Kenya 10 to 4 (10thousand feet to 4 thousand feet) http://www.10to4.org/
a race in Kenya to raise money for Mount Kenya and its diverse assembly of animal life. What a great experience. I hope that you and other american riders would consider competing some day. At one place the race was shortly held up by elephants!
One of the greatest bike experiences of my life. cheers,
