The "Off Season Team Night Out" was its usual success. Burgers were snarfed, Beer Quaffed (Al N. even had some beer!!), Videos watched, unsuspecting dive bar patrons confused. Pretty much normal. A Wednesday school night and a "blizzard" kept the debauchery to a minimum, good for all the old people.
Our buddy Lee of the Miners Tavern
hooked us up once again, a great venue, big screen, and a few pitchers of good beer on him. Many thanks, and good luck to Lee on his second Leadville 100 this year.
We did an expanded Team Award/Accomplishment section this year, with 4 riders getting awards for their efforts over the season. Besides these nifty certificates, Some nasty Belgian Beer & Mad Alchemy Embro was doled out to the hard working recipients. (Click-ey on the certificates below to get the full test of the awards.)
Jonathan Jones - Media Darling
Armin Bantowsky - Best Race Planning (Armin, do NOT think the irony of giving YOU a "race Planning" award is not intended & intentional...)
David Claude - Get Back on that Horse
Ric Stofflet - Most improved Rider (or most improvement in gravity avoidance... NEVER have we seen someone crash SIX times in one race, and yet finish.)
Video Productions are available on DVD upon request, but the 2 full productions are also here for your viewing pleasure.

That wraps up the CX season for sure. Spring "Training" camps, summer MTB, and maybe a trail work day are the top of the team activity list for the Summer. Enjoy the "quiet" time, soon it will warm up.....
