2008 Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup - SAT

The 2008 Whitmore's Landscaping Super Cross Cup, TWO UCI C1 Events, were a must go for Py this year again. Organized by Hampton Velo.

Saturday morning he go ready to race these two upcoming day in the 3/4 Master 35+ category and enjoy the rest of the day watching the remaining races. Driving out to Southampton took about 45min. Here is a link to the schedule.

It was a very cold and really windy November day, especially with that wind chill factor:

Already at the registration table he got little cold waiting in line, but the line was short. That done he got ready for warm up and checked out the course, did a couple of easy laps. It was about the same than last year, but in reverse for the first day. The ground was rock solid frozen and thus it was fast.

At some exposed spots of the course the cold wind blew straight into his face. The former challenging climb now turned into a tricky downhill as the turn at the bottom was off camber like on frozen grass -- which was a slide out for a bunch of riders later.

His race started at about 10:15, a big group some how slow going and bunching up several times, no real race feeling was coming, always stuck behind and not even really getting warm at this given conditions. The 40min flew by in time...

After that done, Py had a good time and took many many photos, enjoy:

Py got 13 highly official (whatsoever Northern America Cyclo Cross UCI Series) points for coming in as number 13 on Sunday. -- This should be equal to WP points o-) !!!
