2008 NC State Games- Mountain Bike Championship




Greensboro- Bull City Cycling had a strong showing at today's NC State Games Mountain Bike Championship. Chris, Dave, JD, and I made the trip out to the host venue, Greensboro's Country Park. We found a fast, well-marked, non-technical course to our liking. Chris, Dave, and JD lined up for the ultra-competitive single speed class which had one of the day's larger fields. After three fast laps Chris came in for 1st place, JD a close 4th, and Dave a strong 5th place. Chris has a bling gold medal and statewide bragging rights. BCC will also be designing a jersey indicating his new status. Start sending in ideas. Below, Chris on the podium's top step.
I fared well with a 3rd place in the very lightly contested Sport Men's race. Apparently, the cool kids aren't riding gears anymore which makes for easier placings. Or the gear-loving crowd forewent the state race for the 12 Hour Cowbell Challenge which was in held in Charlotte today. Here's my podium shot.




Thanks to our sponsors, loved ones, and our supporters for making these results possible.

Did a giant Dewey Cox impersonator win the Sport Men's division? And did he race in shorts and sandals?

And did he race in shorts and sandals?

And belt, no less.

I like that Ali took his helmet to the podium. Hey, you can never be to careful, just look at what happened to Mark Cavendish.

That's awesome. I like how he gets up and tries to play it off by being super-animated.

Ali's ready, though: such things will not happen to BCCers.
