2012 Monster Cross Race || Post Race Report

Last Sunday was the first Monster Cross Race event held at Pocahontas State Park. The Race was put on by Run Ride Race. Sunday started off as a cold morning but with 452 racers at the line, things were going to heat up fast.

Knowing that my training or lack of training, I planned to start from the back and let things open up and just ride.

 My goal: 1) Finish the race. This would be the first time ever completing 50 miles in the park. Something I have wanted to do for some time. 2) Have a finishing time of 4:30. No race records here...

This was the first time that I had used my Waltworks CX bike in a race and I have to report that the bike did great! I just wish my body did as great as the bike! I wish I had been able to take some pictures but I did not. If you do some searches on the web you will find a couple of YouTube videos posted.

Bottom Line, it was a great event. It is already posted on Bikereg for next year. I finished the race and I was under my goal my 10 mins.

I have to work on my training!

50 mile Monster Cross race - wow - awesome.

Nice job on the effort and finishing time, sounds like a great event.

Yeah - I'd get a kick out of seeing those tricked out VW vans!
