|Froze Goat #1 Washington Wallow
We held the first Froze Goat Cyclocross Race this Saturday in Washington Missouri. Only the hardiest, toughest, craziest folks showed as rain threatened but held off. It's really cool the way this came together with so many people helping out. Mad props to Crazy Jack and Squadra Chupacabra for sponsoring the series and to Mesa cycles for providing prizes for the B and C races. Justin Grisham and Kurt Russell, local boyz in Washington, showed us this gem of a venue which is the local high school's cross country course. The whole thing is on a farm that goes way back to the early 1800s. The course consisted of wide open grassy fields and a couple of good plunges into and out of a ravine, and two long, smooth, taxing climbs. 2 more races to go- the next one is in Edwardsville IL Sunday the 11th. Roasted goat to be served! cabrito, baby! go to www.stlbiking.com for info. it's the only game in town and it is gamey!
