Hi everyone,
It was a pleasure meeting and racing with a lot of you this past weekend. I know I had a lot of fun trading in my fat tires for some skinny ones at the Avondale Crit on Sunday.
I just wanted to elaborate on Braden’s report, specifically from the mountain side. Great job to Terrin Lane, Jason Hall, and Kyler Kienholz who represented this weekend at MBAA race #1 – McDowell Meltdown:
     Terrin Lane took 5th overall in women’s expert open class.
     Jason Hall took 20th overall in men’s expert open class.
     Kyler Kienholz was 20th in men’s Intermediate 35-49
     Gerrit Mack 22nd in Expert men’s open after a flat tire dropped him 12 spots.
I also wanted to mention the Carlos O’Brien’s Mountain Men Team (Braden, Jason H. Matt F. and I) took 7th overall in quad team racers at the 12 Hours of Papago the two weeks ago in Tempe.
The next mountain bike race is January 31st at Estrella MTN Park (4 miles directly South of the Avondale Crit). If you are interested in racing we would love to have you out there. Even if it is your first time, there’s a category for that!
I have attached a mountain specific race schedule for anyone who wants to get a little dirty with us. I look forward to riding with you all soon.
Thanks, Gerrit Mack
