Seeing the World Tour must be on your "To Do" list!

Last Sunday was the 2014 Monster Cross Race put on by Mark Junkermann at Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, Va. This was the 3rd year for the event and each year the field of racers gets bigger.

This post race report is going to be a little different than I have done in the past. I have waited a week for other racers to post their race reports, pictures and videos on their sites and I am going to do my best to put them all here. So here we go

The finish area

Yours truly signed up for the mini monster this year. Because of all the crazy winter weather I had not been riding like I wanted to. I wanted to have a fun race and not be in a lot of pain later on. I did have a few issues on the bike like losing my rear brakes and could not shift off the big ring without having to stop. These were just small details. I had a great time and I had a good race finish.

Out of all the bicycles I saw, my favorite was a old school Merlin. If you don't know they are back. I did not get a picture of the bike because I never saw the dude after passing him.

Another thing we do not see at all on the East Coast is a


a big orange van! Yes it's a Sportsmoble 4x4, very cool!
