“In Search of Nana’s Cup” Week 2

The TRS 80 was fed the data and crunched out the following results.

We had a few debuts to the standings this week, most notably the tandem State Farm boys.  In tenth, the Insurer of the Pain Cave aka Prefontaine aka Mr Iron Man showed his metal as he decimated the rear of the field putting OSAITW in his rightful place.  The Hebrew Hammer aka Carlos Jr rocked the straight bars to garner 5pts that put him on the board in ninth.  With 8pts in eighth place making his first appearance in the standings was Furious George.  In seventh place, the Muscle brought his “A” game out to Monarch HS and put the hurt on the RLW boys.  Sixth place in the standings this week, the Big Teplitzky, received  zero pts as he opted for a bye week.  In fifth, proving that over training can pay off if you are “In Search of DFL” is OSAITW.  The Sheppard of Pain proved that turning your front yard into a private cx course and holding daily races against his wife pays off putting him into fourth.  Lars Zoom keeping it consistent is in third.  With his debut, Speedy T doubled down rocketing him up into second in the standings.  Notorious holds his commanding lead in the standings.

For the love of SSCX

Team RLW has a considerable passion for racing cx on our singlespeeds. Some of the team is very good, some busting tail to get better. Because of this passion I share this awesome article SSCX Mr. McNeely writes a comprehensive article for all levels of interest and participation. I took away some great refreshers.

Several teammates worked with Raven Cycle Werks this past spring to bring about some awesome SSCX frames for
the cross season. The more we ride the more we appreciate these frames.
