After being forced to take a 2 week break due to a serious case of “Gloucester Cough” and missing Providence, one of my favorite races, I registered for the next stop on the NYCross Series. Weather finally started to be more cross-like, and not that I like the cold weather but it was starting to get hard to race cross in hot conditions without water. This year, the course was different than the previous times I did this race. Actually, it is the original course, but I just never got to race it back then, I probably wasn’t even familiar with cyclocross at that time.

This past weekend I raced in the Michigan Mountain Mayhem Gravel Grinder, a 100 K back road race in northern Michigan. Comprised of back dirt and seasonal roads - this was going to be one heck of a race. Lots of climbing and with 2 plus inches of rain this week, the potential for muddy and washed out seasonal roads made it potentially a slog fest - and just to complicate this, I had entered to race in the single speed division. This had become a big event in the Midwest attracting some of the sports regional royalty. These include Tristan Schouten, Michael Simonson and Brian Matter.
