Bergen's Cutoff Race Report

Bit of a smaller crowd than we've had at recent races. Plenty of underwhelming excuses were offered up by the absent ones. And of course these were duly mocked by the few, the proud, the hard core who did brave the long, lonely journey to NK for the race. But the continuity has been preserved. The race season goes on. There is even talk of extending the once-a-month race schedule into summer. This was, of course, a sponsored event. So loyalty was duly rewarded with donated FGD and toques. The secretary will post a picture.

As for the race itself, a nice little course that looks promising as a repeat venue. Several endos were performed--the result of a rather steep dropoff down the old rail bed and the diminishing snow conditions in later laps, not to mention poor bike-handling skills. But no major injuries to report.



Next race is the Altona Open on March 4th. Perhaps our goal should be at least to match the participations numbers that Altona will put up.

In other news, Floyd sits in 4th place after the 3.1 km opening prologue TT at the T of CA. The race continues this afternoon. Check out the latest interview with Floyd from cyclingnews.
