Several of the guys on the squad like to participate in a torture fest know as cyclo-cross. Part steeplechase, part crit and all pain.
The first outing of the season would see the boys taking a strong 6 person contingent to 'Bamacross, in Birmingham, Al. (http://www.bamacross.com/), where they would commence to stretch their legs in anticipation of the upcoming UCI races and the http://www.georgia-cross.com/ series.
They rolled up in the van, threw open the tent, and laid some product out, and we we're in business. Racing was to commence a few hours after arrival. Race time came upon us, and we toed the line for the hour+ event. From the word "GO" the Myogenesis guys controlled the race, with Tim Barrett, Casey Magner, Brady Rogers, Cleve Blackwell, Travis Sherman and new secret weapon, Jacob Fetty, taking turns at the front, keeping the pace high. After an hour of crossing creeks, and trudging through the mud, the Myogenesis guys put 4 in the top ten! Timmy banging home a second, just behind future cross star, Oscar Clark. Fetty came in with a fourth and Shady with a sixth and the Beaver, Clever Blackwell, gnawing his way into ninth. Not bad for the first go round of '08.
The next weekend would carry Timmy to Cincy for a UCI race, with some hitters in attendance. Tim pulled a respectable 21st (with a badly sprained wrist, from Al.), just one out of UCI points..ROCK ON TIMMY
