Yankee TT: Joberon report

One Week Later. This weekend the winds were a blowin west. Towards beautiful sunshine, super fun and dry trails and Michigans Native Sun, Oberon, at the Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo. Another great showing of racers this weekend. About 25 lean mean MTB'n machinesin the Elite field. I hope we have at least that many for the cross country events coming up. I just saw the pro field in the World Cup yesterday was 200+. That's a bit much but it would be great to see 30 or 40 racers. Come on Michigan! Let's put MTB'n back on the map. I'm much happier this week about my race. I felt better and could tell the form is coming along. My legs weren't screaming the entire time as they were at Pontiac Lake. I didn't ride over my head and kept the Quiring bike upright. A pretty good ride. I almost wished it had been another lap. I think it was just the magical powers of the sun. After the race we were off to the Bell's Brewery to refuel. The Biergarten is open for business! It reminded me of summers in Germany. What a fantastic place to hang out. Especially after a MTB ride. Doesn't get much better. Someone at work just mentioned there's train service to Kzoo. Hmm. I need to look into that. See ya at the next one everybody. Enjoy the weather and be safe.


Jason Lummis raced at on the same day against 2000 crazy canadians. He managed a 31st despite a major mechanical which resulted in the use of only the larger cogs on his cassette. His Stans ZTR wheels and Crow tires made the mostly RR bed, dirt road and farm fields roll smooth. It was great race weather this past sunday for all.
Fort Custer XC race May 6th is next up after Simonster heads to Maryland for the AMBC state Championship he won last year ! This weekend--- Good Luck Mike !

Shoulda told the German about the Biergarten earlier!

Train to Kalamazoo? How about a bike ride across the state, have some drinks and take the train back...

Hey, this isn't related to you're team per se, but I'm getting my brother a Bell's cycle jersey, and I wanted to get a recommendation
on size. He's 6'2" and 180 lbs.

He used to go to school in KZoo, and we've both always been big Bell's fans. He's started doing triathalons now, so I figured I'd get him the official jersey.

Also, I have to lay my trademark Bell's joke on you: I guess they're coming up with an NA version of Oberon... they're calling it Soberon.

Thanks, and good luck racing!
