the gauntlet has been thrown down!
Velociped Jones is the future of racing and he was a P to A spawnling.

Re: Can-Am Challenge 1 year, 9 months ago #43592

I realize this is a four race series but did anybody tally the results after the Winterfest race? I saw lots of SHCC members in the pictures and results.

Results have been tallied... Drum roll please...
WNYMBA had 13 members racing and SHCC had 9.
We took an average of all the racer's overall finishes and WNYMBA just barely came out on top.
Next race is the Frostbike, February 17th where SHCC is buying a round for all the WNYMBA racers.
Let the trash talk commence.
Racing for WNYMBA: Ben Bixby, Trevor Wolf, Brian Borowiec, Jon Amoia, Mike Moscato, Jen Wolfe, Joe Catalano, Phil DeFranco, Dan Rabb, John Crumlish, Dave Less, Pat Capuson and Ethan Johnson.
Racing for SHCC: Tim Lee, Wade Smith, Jason Mccarthur, Dan and Jen Bouchard, Tim Sparrow, Sara Lee, Jen Smith and Ed Skala.
See you on the 17th.

Jen Wolfe 2
Dan Rabb 6
Ben Bixby 4
Ethan Jonson 12
Jeff Smith 14
TJ Zydel 16
Phil DeFranco 17
Scott Bixby 2
Pat Capuson 6
Mike Moscato 7
Scott Jeziorski 15

We're waiting for the SHCC to tally up their score.

Re: Can-Am Challenge 1 year, 9 months ago #43670

SHCC had 18 members racing and their finish average was..........
6.83
They won that one.
Let the trash talk commence.

Re: Can-Am Challenge 1 year, 9 months ago #43671

Is the next race the stampede? or one of the series races? Date on Stampede?

Re: Can-Am Challenge 1 year, 9 months ago #43672

I don't know what the racer criteria is but Bonnie Symes won both so far. That may change things?

Mojo
What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

Bonnie's results certainly would have helped, unfortunately she's not a WNYMBA member

Next race for the Can Am Series is the Six in the Hood, a 6 hour race. Then we wrap it all up at the STS IV on August 25th during the WNYMBA Mountain Bike Festival.
The criteria for the Can Am Challenge is simple, you have to be a member of either club and race to partake in the trash talk and beer drinking.

I'll start some trash talk...
CANADIAN beer is better!

If need be we'll payout with some high quality Wellington Brews.

Rumour on the street, Wellington Brewery is talking about making us up a custom SHCC Brew.
Maybe we'll have a keg of it for SIX IN THE HOOD (SITH) if it works out or for the Stampede.

Anyone take a pull of the keg of Wellington Special Pale Ale at Frostbike?
It was terrific!

Re: Can-Am Challenge 1 year, 9 months ago #43677

Yeah, well Flying Bison brews a beer for our club, it's called Rusty Chain.
We are talking with them about sponsoring the Fest weekend. If not we will just have to buy some.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
