Town Hall Cross V3

Just a quick post here.  This past weekend was the third annual Town Hall Cross that Greg and I cooked up a few years back as a good idea to give back to the sport.  Well, the event BLOSSOMED in a big way this year, nearly doubled our pre-registration from 203 in 2011 to 383 in 2012!  We added some great stuff like gourmet food from Bolete, three kegs of beer and a live band Gallons to Ounces.  It turned out to be quite a party event and fun seemed to be had by all.  And oh yeah, there was racing as well.  Course was muddy from a bunch of rain leading up to the race and it was classic cyclocross.

We scrambled to find extra parking, but our donation to the fire company and the two fire police directing parking saved the day.
A sold out field of 100 Cat 4 riders ascends the St. Lukes Staircase on the first lap.  The hill was the easy part!
Greg's ascending...
Newest Lamprey member Joe Pigga finished in the money in the 1/2/3 race.  Oh, did I mention there was mud?
Cross is fun, teammates are awesome!
Marten putting on a charge in the 1/2/3.  Look at the crowd cheering on!
Joe going for it early in the 1/2/3.
Kids race was a huge hit, so big we ran out of prizes.  Will change that for next year.
My first 1/2/3 race, 60 minutes with no warm up or anything.  17/25 finishers, I'll take it.  Going motocross style through the ruts here.
There will be mud.  Pinky got the call up today, she has 36/27 gearing for the hill climb!
Joshua was all smiles.  My favorite shot...ever.

A happy race director, sporting the 2012 edition shirt!
Specialized hooked us up BIG TIME.  We raffled off a frameset and had some of the best prizes around.
