Yes! Anther awesome Frost Bike in the books. I can honestly say that no two frost bikes are the same. In fact, I've ever raced anything like that before. Solid ice single track rut through the woods, even on the ups and downs (especially on the ups a downs)! I would like to hear from people fortunate enough the have run studded tires. If I had know exactly what the conditions were going to be like, I would have paid the $200 or so to pick up some studded tires.

I don't know exactly how the can-am challenge works other than that Wade handed me a pitcher of beer while awaiting the awards in the city tavern. So thanks very much for the free beer! It was distributed to as many WNYMBA members as possible. I did come prepared with a six pack of Founder's brewery porter in case I had to pay out.

Other things of (not exactly) note are that the border guards seem to be more interested in if I know my license plate number than if we are carrying any booze with us, even though the cooler was in plain sight with the handle sticking up. And I got IDed by the waitress lady at the city tavern!? Strange times.

Opinions are like pimples, they vary in amount and cover different areas.

There is no or, you're going to lose it.

thanks to our fellow imba-ites at short hills for putting on another great event! the post race party at the city tavern was a lotta fun (if you haven't tried the poutine there, it's the real deal). La Crêperie on west street is also worth a visit. i couldn't even finish the peameal bacon that came with my breakfast because it was so big.

Velociped Jones is the future of racing and he was a P to A spawnling.

A few of the short climbs are a little slick. I had to run up i and dab another.

I would NOT go cross in the hood!

I could be wrong but I don't think we have ever had a Cross Bike actually finish one of our races, most DNF.


Not very fast but havin' fun!

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.
