Mongo has rung in November with a whimper. My performances and time on the bike over the last few weeks have been both underwhelming and painful. A back issue, combined with weather and work-related problems, have kept my mileage to a minimum. I even had to sit out the last two 23/2300 Hammerfests of the season.
In the meantime, Mongo got to put his golden pipes to good use this past Sunday as the official "number caller-outer" of every race at the highly successful Georgia Cross stop at Life College...sponsored by Smyrna Bicycles. Teammates, Andy, Steven, King-A, and MC-Lean all raced...with MC-Lean crashing while leading the "B" race and recovering nicely for a seventh place finish. Andy finished top fifteen in a 60+ man field, King-A rocked the fairy costume, and Steven raced in two categories. Cyclocross races are a unique and fun atmosphere...I highly recommend it.
Tomorrow, Mongo and LPE have a date with fifty miles of cold, wet road...I can't wait!
