Results - Stage 1 GRC

Last night was the start of the 2007 Gravel Rouser...first off, I know everyone wants to see this years number it is

The course was a greasy clay type muddy, mostly downhill, with lots of off-camber sections. Approximately 1 - 1.5 miles in length, with lots of potential for disaster (20 ft drop off clifs) if your tires decide not to hook up. It is always cool to come down to Athens and ride singletrack that is more technical than anything in WI...especially after not riding a mountain bike for 4 months. I was a little sad to ride my brand new Trek Top Fuel 9.9 in such muddy conditions, but such is racing.

The final drop to the finish, on my way to the first victory of the season!

The top three..(check out the neck beard on Joey Boyle # 69)

I spy the meanest Hockey Mullet in Athens County in the back ground...

Check out Athens Bicyle for complete results and podium photos...

Tonight is the Grab & Git

The locals have the serious advantage, but we'll see what we can do...

Still think Tristan in Red looks a little FAT vs the old Blue kit.
