Are you, like our very own Ella Neurohr, a LADY JUNIOR? Are you a lady junior who placed in the top 5 in your category (10-14 or 15-18)?
If so, then we have a medal or ribbon for you! Some of you have very kind and patient parents who stuck around to see you stand proud on that podium. And, understandably, some of you had to return to the life that is outside of cyclocross.
If you are a lady junior who didn't get a chance to grab your medal or ribbon from Hopkins Park, Chicago Cuttin Crew will have it for you at Dan Ryan Woods this weekend! If you aren't going to be able to make it to Dan Ryan, then email us at chicagocuttincrew AT gmail DOT com, and we'll mail it to you.
For the rest of you: The Official Mumford Race Report
First and foremost I would like to state that I won cat three Hopkins Park last year. So on Saturday night I had a team get together at my condo. Many folks were in attendance. In the morning Mike drove me to the race in his 2004 Toyota Tacoma TRD. Its black and in top working order. He brought two Cannondales with him. At registration I snuck up behind Chris J and grabbed his butt with both hands. He turned around with a flustered look on his face and grumbled "I would have punched you in the face if it wasn't you." Lesson learned, don't grab butts. I rode two practice laps all slow with no feeling of how the course would feel fast. In the future I will be scrumping my practice runs just like DH. On the start line I was all nonchalant and the whistle caught me way off guard. During the race those awful people who watch cyclo races were all like "hey catch Scott and Brian." If I could have I would have. DONT TELL ME WHAT TO DO YOU'RE NOT MY BOSS! I got third in the mans race. Mike got some real nice looking wheels from Rob at P S I MET. We took them to Roscoe Village Bikes to get tires glued. Then I bought a single can of beer from Lush. You see I can have one beer and feel real good. I have a low body mass index thus making me sensitive to caffeine and alcohol. Oh yeah and big ups to my competition. Dave Lombardo I know you have my number, it's only a matter of time before you beat me. Keep it up. However by then Matt Silvia will be beating us all.
