Cheshire Cyclocross '08

This post should've been titled, "Matt Lolli And Doug Jenne Have Serious Mental Health Issues". Unfortunately, that didn't fit.
Matt & Doug rode in the Cheshire Cyclocross '08 series this morning, hosted by Cheshire Cycle complete with a Ghostship shout-out on their sponsors page.



Doug Jenne -- Vicious Cycles / Ghostship
Scorcher



It was my first time at a cyclocross event, let alone a New England cyclocross event. I can sum up the sport by saying "a bunch of cyclists with head problems ride retarded bikes in places they shouldn't, torturing themselves purely for my enjoyment." It was wild -- I think I've been converted. Who knew standing in 28 degree weather for three hours would be such a good time?!


Matt Lolli of Ghostship fame wore a milkshake costume...




My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...



Matt came in 16th out of about 40 people in the Cat. 4 / Public division.






Doug raced Cat. 2/3 (The Big Kids) and placed 18th. He had top ten for the first lap, but lost ground during the large grass flat section (hey, whaddya expect, he was runnin' a singlespeed!!!)

We also ran into Tayphoo, a New Haven native and frequenter of alleycats, riding for Sikorsky...

Matt obviously doesn't take racing seriously. That shit would never fly on Boulder.
Go ahead, ask him.
He'll agree with me.

You know, the Mayor is absolutely right. If 'Golfclap' were around, he'd have shut the whole thing down...
