Ciclistas del Rio

The Ciclistas del Rio club was represented at the 24 Hours of Moab mountain bike race this year by a 4 person team consisting of local riders; Brian Bluemle, Jeff Fox, Terry Gorsuch and Tom Miller. We overcame a few difficulties (me suffering from a miserable cold, Tom flatting on Pugsley in the middle of the night, Terry suffering vision problems during his 1:30 a.m. lap, and Brian breaking a crucial pivot bolt on the bike borrowed from John Tomac right before his first lap) to finish 13th out of 94 teams. Everyone stayed upright and avoided injury which is always foremost in importance during any bike race.

We had a blast, although it may have been hard to convince us of that fact during that 3rd night lap in the early a.m. hours. There is a special feeling about being out on course cranking away through the desert when the majority of the world is sound asleep. For those that have done a 24 hour race, you know exactly what I am talking about, for those that haven't, I recommend trying it, even it is in the "Just for Fun" class. Next stop on the tour is 24 Hours of Old Pueblo in Tucson, AZ during February. We have one local team organized for the single speed class but it would be great to show up in force with a couple of teams. There are solo, duo, and 4 person classed. Any interest?

Here is a link to a cool slide show of this years 24 Hours of Moab:

Boggy Cross #2: Race for Marilyn and Gareth

Boggy Cross #2 was well attended with 14 riders contributing $264.00 towards the medical expenses of Marilyn Cieszykowski.

Top 5 Results:

1) Travis Brown
2) Rob Schmidt
3) Cale Redpath
4) Jesse from FLC
5) David Paquette

Steve showin' some skills.

While Jesse and Dave ran,

Cale rode the rocky climb in style

Gilby's knee survived the log barriers.

Rob rode the really steep run-up. Well done!

Travis won and smiled even brighter when he selected a growler of Stout from Dolores River Brewing as his prize.


Day 2 we raced in the rain. Fortunately I'm ahead of this chasing group; unfortunately, I'm chasing two guys. Fortunately, the chasing group never caught me; unfotunately, I never caught the two leaders.

Chasing another orange LeMond -- I wonder if he's running clinchers?

Day One ended after 15 minutes. It helps when the tire stays glued to the rim.

Report from Boggy Cross

Dogs included, spectators out numbered riders 1.5 to 1. Alas, Michael laments, no beer tent.

There are some fast sections ...

A hill to ride or to run ...

Some logs to run over ...

And a really steep wall to run up.

Boggy Cross will run again on Sunday, October 7th at 11:00 AM -- if we can confirm at least 5 starters. Comment here or send an email to confirm your interest and for directions to the course. Mountain bikes are welcome.
