CX Race Report

Paul Lennon Race Report – 1/15/2012

Bill, Jordan, Brandon and myself raced the ride on race at Boomtown today.  Due to the fact that Brandon has been so fast lately, Jarret had him start at the back.  On the second corner, Brandon crashed somehow (not sure how it happened because we haven’t talked to him).  His parents took him to get an X-ray on his arm and we saw on Facebook that his wrist is broken. Big bummer. We are sorry this happened to you Brandon. Get well soon.

 The race went as follows:

I stopped at the start of the second lap to check on Brandon and then started to chase the lead guys. Jordan was out in front, followed by Fast Fred then Bill. Bill and I were having a nice little race with Jordan out in front and Fred right behind him. But then about 4 or so laps into it Jordan started to fade and Fred got a pretty good gap on him. Then Bill and I figured we cant let a non Owens guy win this race so we ramped it up. We caught Jordan, then I was slowly able to bridge up to Fred. It wasn’t easy though. I did get passed him and I ended up winning. Fred was second, Bill was third and Jordan was fourth. Jed also raced after being sick the last couple days and ended up 6th. Good job everyone.

Brandon Dillard’s Race Report – 12/17/2011

I went to Santa Rosa over the weekend to do a cross race. It was the last race of a series they had. I raced the open A”s. There were 21 guy”s and i was on the last row for the start but by the first corner I was in 5th. I just sat there for a few laps but and fell back to 7th. Thats where I finished, and also that was the best I felt all year so I was really happy with my finish! see you all soon!  – Brandon

USGP Race: Day 2

January 03rd, 2012

Paul Lennon’s Race Report – 12/11/2011

Day 2, a little colder, a little further back in the grid, 5th row.

Had another good start and first 2 laps, sitting in 7th not far back from the leaders, had a bobble on a steep short climb and lost 2 spots, then a while later rolled the tire and had to CO2 it and lost a minute, ended up 18th.

Great course, great town, time to buy tubulars.

Cold but dry morning here in Bend, 56 guys in the 45+ race, no call up for me, started 4 row back. I had a great start went to the inside of the first corner and was around 15th, had a good first lap, 7th place. Had a few guys pass be before the end, finished 12th, pretty happy for not riding as much as I should be.

Caldwell Cross Race

January 03rd, 2012

Jordan Anderson’s Race Report – 12/5/2010

Paul, Mike, Brandon Jed and I raced at Caldwell park yesterday for the cross race. The A’s had I think 13 riders so a decent turnout. The coarse was almost all grass but it had a decent flow to it but there was a lot of holes in the grass which made for a bumpy ride. Off the start Brandon set the pace followed by Mike, Paul and I brought up the rear of the blue train. At the end of the first lap Mike had mechanical issues which put Paul and I in 2nd and 3rd, Brandon was out of site. Then I passed Paul and he patiently waited  until we had 3 laps to go then he hammered it and went by me. I stayed on his pace for almost the rest of the race and finished 3rd. Brandon 1st, Paul 2nd, I didn’t hear Mikes place and Jed got 6th. Fun race.
